Michael D'Antoni
Versa-Tel T.S., Inc. 
Farmingdale SBDC

Retiring from the U.S. Air Force in 2004 with more than 20 years of honorable service, Technical Sergeant Michael D’Antoni has stated that with his military experience; “there is no telecommunication or fiber optics scenario he can’t handle.” Today, the owner of Versa-Tel T.S. Incorporated, a leader in telecommunications, boasts a successful history for performing installations across Long Island to include Long Island MacArthur Airport, US Armed Forces Command Center in Amityville, NYS INFORM traffic control signal / information systems, Theodore Roosevelt Executive Building in Nassau County, SUNY Stony Brook MART/Tower, SUNY Farmingdale as well as public schools, libraries, and other large-scale data and voice networks all over Long Island. 

The company designs and installs cutting edge commercial telecommunications systems, specializing in full scope fiber optic network systems for high speed data and voice. Along with Michael, his highly trained certified technicians provide a 25-year warranty on all Versa-Tel projects. Several years ago Michael consulted with the SBDC regarding sources of financing for additional equipment regarding an upcoming $4 million contract with the Long Island Dept. of Transportation for road work. Most recently Advisor Dave Chiaro provided assistance with business expansion, financing, and government contracting helping Michael apply for, and obtain his NYS Service Disabled Veteran Certification. NYS SDVOB certification helped Versa-Tel win a $2.6 million prime contract award from Stony Brook University and a $150k loan through NYBDC. In 2016 Michael was awarded the New York SBDC Veteran Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
