Founder of Augusta Telephone Steps Down
Augusta Telephone rang in the new year with a big change: Cooper Cliatt the founder of the the communications equipment provider who has run the company for the last 35 years, has retired.
Cliatt has turned the business over to son and company president Hartie Cliatt and lead installer Trey Edwards.
“I am most appreciative of the business and trust you have placed with me,” Cooper said. “It is truly a pleasure when you can call your customers friends.”
Now that he has some extra time on his hands, Cooper plans to put the real estate license he received in the 70s to good use and specialize in rural land, lake homes, lots and commercial real estate. “Who knows commercial buildings better than an old telephone man?” Cooper said.
Hartie Cliatt and Edwards took over on Jan. 1.
Augusta Telephone specializes in business systems, VolP, Hosted PBX, SIP Trucking and more.
