About Mervyn Gervis
As Partner with UPSTACK, Mervyn Gervis brings an unwavering dedication to comprehensive, customized offerings and exemplary customer service. His personal philosophy is – and always has been – to simplify business technology for the client.
Mervyn was drawn into a telecom agency opportunity as a second career after immigrating to the U.S. from South Africa. With a competitive drive and a desire to help customers navigate the telecom waters, he founded Universal Telecommunications in 1996 as a long-distance agent. The company’s portfolio continued to grow over the years, and it now provides a range of voice, data and cloud-based communications services. In 2012 Universal added a sister company, Universal Solution Providers, to deliver managed IT services—both are now UPSTACK companies.
Combined, they provide private and public sector businesses with IT network and voice solutions backed by professional project management and 24/7 support.
As a Partner at UPSTACK, Mervyn Gervis looks forward to continuing to help clients with carrier-network services, including fiber, broadband, fixed wireless, and business communications, including UCaaS, CCaaS, SD-WAN, mobility solutions, compliance, and managed services.
One of Mervyn’s many successful projects was taking a local auto dealer, from servicing a single location, to providing a full range of voice and data services to multiple regional locations.
He has a bachelor’s degree in commerce and finance from University of the Witwatersrand. In Mervyn’s free time, he enjoys reading, exercising and gardening.
