His leadership has been instrumental to the success of DataTele’s healthcare projects, working in the field as the Lead Foreman of New York Presbyterian Hospital East in 2010, and then as a Senior Project Manager in 2011-2012.

Data-Tele Contractors, Inc. is a family-owned and operated company, with a workforce of highly trained CWA (Local 1000) project managers, supervisors, installers and apprentices.
Founder Dan Carretta began Data-Tele in 1988, when he discovered a new and rapidly growing market in phone system programming. At the time, this “new” technology revolved around analog phone systems, directories, and most importantly, cabling. When the personal computer became widely adopted, the tech boom created an entirely new industry of computer-based infrastructure that relied on a low-voltage backend cable plant.
Upon the burst of the dot com bubble, Data-Tele adapted by making a shift into the healthcare sector. Starting with the small periphery jobs that other contractors turned down, Data-Tele established itself as a firm that would always be committed to upholding a high standard of service, no matter the project size.
Slowly working himself into becoming the daily contractor on-site at New York Presbyterian and The Mt. Sinai Hospital within the last decade, Dan and the Data-Tele team have expanded the business across cabling infrastructure solutions and related technology services, boasting a staff of 100 full-time employees with offices in New Jersey and Midtown Manhattan.
By leveraging high-level design, quality engineering and installation, and a golden standard of customer service, Data-Tele has worked successfully in partnership with Fortune-500 companies, non-profit organizations, and leading healthcare facilities on a diverse range of projects. To this day, the business remains grounded in Dan’s core values of craftsmanship, dedication, and integrity. Data-Tele is proud of every project we are engaged in, and we remain committed to our clients, our business and our fundamental belief that the tools of today will build the future of tomorrow.
