PCS Mobile 1993 – 2019, 26 Years! Now A Part of Route 1

July 01, 2019

When I was a kid growing up in rural Northwest Kansas
I wrote a term paper on what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wanted to be a lawyer. When I was a sophomore in High School, I fell in love with the Lou Grant show and wanted to be a journalist and change the world. When I moved to Denver in 1985 I took a position as a retail sales clerk promoting the Tandy mobile data computer line. I loved it and fell in love with Sales and got a taste of the fast-paced world of technology.Fast forward 26 years and I find myself soon to be past owner of PCS Mobile. I started PCS Mobile in July 1993. This company provided a journey I could never have imagined or planned. A life event that shaped who I am today, and will be tomorrow. A journey that would grant me a world full of friends, industry knowledge, joys, disappointments and most of all memories.PCS Mobile has been acquired by Route1. PCS mobile, effective July 1, will operate as a Division of Route1 and be inside the Route1, GroupMobile family.We are thrilled to announce that GroupMobile, a Route1 Inc., company has acquired PCS mobile.
