Cobalt Communications' values

Our Founder’s Story

Our story starts at a time before we could all have cordless and hand-held computers at our fingertips. Cobalt Communications was founded in 1999 by John Mancini as an authorized retailer for DIRECTV in the St. Louis area. After earning his marketing degree from Southeast Missouri State University, John leveraged his knowledge of the satellite TV market to build an aggressive marketing campaign that utilized local TV spots and printed ads, thereby growing Cobalt into one of the largest DIRECTV retailers in the country. Over the years, John has expanded Cobalt’s business operation by building relationships with the biggest Internet and telecommunication brands in the country for residential and commercial services. As a result, Cobalt Communications has generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for these companies. John prides himself on being fully engaged with the joint marketing efforts between his team and his partners as he pushes Cobalt Communications to be the best it can be.
