Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

On Monday, September 13th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly meeting to hear from John Berg of Transcom. 

Transcom Telecommunications (formerly called "Transcom Services") is  a Veteran Owned Business founded in 1986 on three core ideas:

  1. Developing long term business partnerships by delivering communications solutions for small to medium, and up to multi location worldwide businesses based in North America.
  2. Attract, train, and retain the most talented people in our industry. We practice the golden rule with our clients as well as the people that work with us. We are a team that values everyone's input on ways to improve. "Every day is a new learning opportunity!"
  3. Have Fun!

Life is too short to not enjoy what you do.  It’s even better when you’re surrounded with a great team of people to work with!

Over the years, we have delivered reliable, tested & proven communication solutions.  We take our years of experience, and help design the optimal solution for our customer's needs.  Developing innovative solutions, practicing the "Golden Rule" with our associates, customers and vendors, has built our reputation that is second to none in the industry.

Much of our growth can be attributed to our clients paying us the highest compliment any business can get. The referral of a new client to us.  In 2000, we incorporated & our name to Transcom Telecommunications.  Through Toshiba's National Account program and nationwide authorized dealer network, we're able to provide solutions not only in California, but all across the country.

This week John spoke about the different products he provides. Please see the video below.
