About Michael Stevens

Michael Stevens has spent more than 25 years helping businesses source innovative technology solutions. As an UPSTACK Partner, Michael leverages UPSTACK’s growing advisory team and supplier relationships to deliver emerging, specialized solutions to existing and prospective clients.

Michael began his career in 1998 at AT&T, where he worked as a sales consultant. In 2005, he moved to TPx (formerly Mpower Communications) as a senior account executive. Frustrated by not being able to offer clients an optimal solution based on unbiased recommendations, Stevens founded Network One Solutions, a telecom advisory with the ability to source solutions from an array of providers. His early success came through referral partnerships with phone system vendors whose clients needed telecom services.

Over the course of 17 years, Network One Solutions evolved into a full-service technology consulting firm specializing in cloud solutions, data networking, voice and unified communications, and security services. Network One provides consultative services and a single point of contact for all services to thousands of small and medium businesses (SMBs), municipalities and hospitality organizations across the United States.

One of Michael’s most successful deployments was leading the transformation of technology upgrades for several cities in California that were faced with budget challenges, which resulted in cost reduction and the consolidation of billing.

Michael attended the University of Redlands in California to earn his bachelor’s degree in business administration.
