Jay Malik

This father of 4 came to America in the early 2000s knowing that America was “the land of opportunity”, but that meant something more to him. Jay came to America with a “vision of providing other people opportunities.” He began his career in the wireless industry, starting off in sales at a kiosk, and has paved his way to becoming the CEO of his own wireless company.

Jay is a family-man who loves to travel with his family to any tropical island. While Jay is data-oriented and driven by the process, he is even more passionate about the people that surround him: “For me, when I leave this world…I want to leave something for others, a legacy, a source of income for generations to come.”
