Simply stated, WeConnect™ is built on our insatiable desire to win.
First to deliver or find a solution. Smarter than anyone else in connecting next-generation technology.
Our brains never stop working. We’re devising how to deliver the next generation of technology while we’re at work, and we don’t stop while we sleep. Whatever our partners can create, we can implement.
It’s always been that way.
And once we think of a solution, we can’t rest till it’s in place. It’s a drive from deep within us. We’ll do whatever it takes to advance technology to the next level—through knowledge and determination.
At WeConnect™ we make connections—implementing world-class technology for nationally recognized and innovative organizations.
Technology, and “the internet of things,” has the incredible potential to bring the world into homes and businesses in ways some never dreamed of. But technology, by itself, means nothing. We have to be able to connect to it. WeConnect™ builds ways to do just that. Through software, processes and systems. Wire, cable, fiber or a means yet to be discovered. Underground, overhead or by satellite. Across your community and across this nation. We’re wired to bring innovation wherever and whenever it’s needed.
Our technology partners, including DISH®, HughesNet® and independent contractors know that WeConnect™ is as smart and nimble as the next great innovation requires.

WeConnect™ is driven by hardworking people who challenge the status quo—who are determined to find the smartest path forward. We surround ourselves with capable team members who share a common vision for our future, a clear mission for our daily work, and values that align us. That makes anything possible.
Be All-In. We’re passionate people. We put nothing short of 100% into everything we do because our greatest source is what we can accomplish.
Roll Up Your Sleeves. Every day offers new opportunities, big or small, to exceed expectations. When we see opportunities, we take chances to make the most of them. We show we care by doing our part to grow ourselves and make WeConnect™ stronger.
Work Together. We have confidence in and value our people. Our success is exponentially greater when we work together. We demonstrate that we see the potential and value in our team when we work together for success. We know the importance of family, and we refer to our team that way.
Drive Future Success. We’re here for the long haul. We keep our eyes on the road ahead and lead transformations as we adapt and work smarter in our ever-changing industry.
We became WeConnect™ in 2016. Our entrepreneurial spirit, however, was at work long before.
WeConnect™ formed when two privately held companies, Alternative Entertainment Inc. (AEI) and WeConnect Enterprise Solutions, combined in September 2016. These two companies had been collaborating for years— rallying resources, sourcing materials and implementing new technologies in record time to implement the technology of nationally recognized internet and satellite providers. Working together, AEI and WeConnect Enterprise Solutions could be as nimble as the next great technological innovation required. Our founders, Tom Burgess of AEI and Brad Libby of WeConnect Enterprise Solutions, saw that we were stronger together. And we officially became one company, WeConnect™.
Our story, however, and relentless pursuit of success began years before WeConnect™. It might have started with Brad selling pumpkins at age 6, or starting his first IT company in middle school.
It might have begun in 1997 with Tom founding a fulfillment company for world-renowned brands in his 600-square-foot garage. A turning point was Tom’s determination to expand the business for future opportunity. Anyone can clearly see Tom and Brad’s drive, and that for these two entrepreneurs, failure is not an option.
The point is, the path to WeConnect™ wasn’t linear. Rather, WeConnect™ was built on sheer determination and confidence, on seeing opportunities and taking chances to make the most of them.
Today WeConnect™ has executive offices in Lincoln, Maine, and Green Bay, Wisconsin, with operation centers across the Midwest, distribution centers on the East Coast and business locations on the West Coast. We’re authorized contractors and retailers for DISH® and HughesNet® as well as a growing list of independent distributors and new partners.
Our nearly 500 employees see and make the most of opportunities to drive success for our partners, our company and their personal growth.
We connect innovation to people—and we connect our people to opportunity.
As a growing company in an ever-expanding industry, our team members hear about next-generation technology and services before the rest of the world does, every day. They have a one-of-a-kind view of innovation and, in this way, develop skills that put them above others in the field. This gives them the opportunity to grow, in ways they and their families may never have imagined.
We’re experts, addicted to the thrill of solving the toughest issues facing our partners in implementing next-generation technology.
If you’re driven, willing to roll up your sleeves and work with others to drive success, we’re always looking for new team members. Join us for a future of transformational growth—for you and for our company.
