David Ashley - Toll Free Vanity Numbers

David Ashley

Founder / CEO

1-800-892-0000, Ext. 3

In 1992, David Ashley noticed a trend in advertising - that national companies were utilizing vanity 800 numbers rather than using numeric numbers. He created Tele-Name Communications to bring the same powerful advantage of memorable tele-name-numbers to small and mid- size companies for their use in their local marketing.

For the past 18+ years, Tele-Name Communications has been helping local businesses dominate their markets through the shared-use of the best tele-name- numbers in the country.
