We enjoy sharing about our recent media coverage with our clients and customers in addition to stories of our company’s history and business growth. Sramana Mitra from the One Million by One Million blog recently profiled our President and CEO Belisario Rosas about his journey to transform WEI into the company it is today. Many of the most talked-about sagas of technology entrepreneurs detail Asian or European innovators; Belisario is Latin American (from Lima, Peru), and Sramana Mitra recently shared his unique story in a 5-part interview series on the blog.
From Bootstrapping to $200 Million
After leaving a company that brokered and sold computer parts, Belisario started Worldcom Exchange Inc. He initially bootstrapped the business, but within several years experienced a jump in revenue that was credited in part to the Internet, yet mainly in communications. In the early days, WEI was using fax to communicate with buyers and sellers.
An important year in the company’s history was 1992, when they began to invest in authorized relationships with computer technology manufacturers, allowing them to purchase as an authorized reseller. In addition to providing brokering services, WEI evolved to become an IT solutions provider that develops custom technology solutions for its customers, a hallmark of their current New England technology operations.
About WEI today
What started as Belisario’s dream has become a reality; WEI is now a top player in the IT channel, an expert in business technology improvement and helps clients optimize their environments and work efficiently. We work with customers to integrate corporate strategy, new technologies and their current IT environment into one company-wide model to increase utilization and efficiencies around their unique business processes.
