Our Founder

This is a story about a technology company whose genesis is rooted in a family farm. Our founder and CEO, David Kaiser was raised on the outskirts of Bakersfield, CA. Hard work and a person’s word were ingrained values at a very young age. Although David wanted to become a farmer, his father encouraged him to experience college and learn about the technology wave that was just beginning. Armed with a bachelor’s in Computer Science, a master’s degree in Business, and an insatiable work ethic, David launched Global CTI from a humble mobile office.

President & CEO

“I started the business because I had something to offer companies to make them better, and I wanted to create a better life for my family and me. Global CTI exists to help our employees and customers be as successful as they can be, and we accomplish this with a set of core values that I

learned on my family’s farm many years ago: Pride (In what we do), A Willingness to Sweep Floors, and Humility (Simple not Flashy). I am surrounded by people who believe in our Mission and Values. We design, install and support integrated communication systems, and we are damn good at it. We persevere when things are tough and always remember that, without our clients and team members, we do not exist.”
