Technology integrator TSAChoice, Inc., with offices in Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC, is proud to announce that Vice President of Technical Services Dan Higgins celebrates his 30th year with TSAChoice in 2013. Dan has been with TSAChoice since 1982 and has earned training and experience in a variety of technical fields, including telephony, structured cabling installation and design, project management, information technology, and security. He is a BICSI Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD), and has earned his alarm systems licenses in North Carolina and South Carolina, in addition to his North Carolina low voltage license.
Dan was introduced to the telecommunications industry while serving in the U.S. Air Force as a Telephone Installation & Repair Specialist. It was here where Dan initially learned basic telephony, key system installation, cable splicing, underground and aerial cabling installation, and pole climbing. After four years Dan left the military at the rank of E-5 and armed with a myriad of skills, which he would carry to his next line of employment with TSAChoice.
In 1982 Dan joined the newly formed Telephone Systems of Asheville, a division of MB Haynes Corporation, which quickly became the dominant telephone equipment, data wiring and fiber optics provider in the area. In 1995, TSAChoice’s original management team of Bill Arledge, Jeff Lowdermilk, and Dan Higgins bought the company from MB Haynes and continue to lead the company to this day, organizing it into the region’s largest business technology integrator in Western North Carolina. 2011 marked TSAChoice’s expansion into upstate South Carolina, serving businesses in Greenville, Greer, Spartanburg, Easley, Anderson, Woodruff, and surrounding areas, from its Greenville, SC office.
TSAChoice is the largest business technology integrator in Western North Carolina and expanded into Upstate South Carolina in 2011. TSAChoice’s more than 60 highly trained technology professionals and support staff deliver turnkey telephone, computer, network, audio-visual, and security solutions from a single source.
