Our Disciplines

Tim Cuneo

President
In starting my career in the electrical business, I brought with me a natural desire to compete, the ability to listen, and a commitment to work hard. Over the 40-year span of my career, I have held positions in procurement, sales management, business management with complete P&L responsibility, and now business ownership. My wife Paula has been my partner throughout this journey. Her dedication has made much of my life possible, bringing her career experiences and a deep commitment to my success.

CET and Associates was founded as a sales organization to serve the electrical industry. We bring products that we are passionate about to our customers. We are also committed to creating value beyond products— with training, design solutions, installation drawings, and market knowledge.

I see CET as an innovative, growing organization, committed to strong values and a passion for success, which I am proud to lead into the future.
Hi Tim.

Paula Cuneo

Director of Accounting
I have been involved in the electrical industry since 1977. After completing college, I procured a position with a software company that wrote an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system exclusively for distributors, with an emphasis on the electrical industry. This system integrated a company’s financial systems, supply chain, operations and reporting in one inclusive software that ran on HP mainframes.

Working in the Manufacturer Reps business for the last 12 years with my husband Tim and son Doug has been one of the best experiences in my life. Tim and I talk too much about work but that’s a given when you spend every hour of each day together.

Having our giant Marine (aka Doug) work with us is perfect. He is pretty much a softie for the most part, but we can send him to be the ‘heavy’ when we need to.  All the people that work with us are truly our family and we couldn’t be happier with all of them.

To me CET is just a natural progression of my life and my life with Tim and Doug.
Hi Paula.

Doug Cuneo

VP Sales & Operations
For 14 years, I served our country in the United States Marine Corps, much of that time was spent overseas.  After the birth of my first son, Timmy, I decided to return to the States so I could be with him as he grew up. Luckily, my father, the man Timmy is named after, had a position for me at CET.  

At first, I felt like I would never be a good salesman, I couldn’t force “widgets” on people.  I even contemplated returning to the Marine Corps. Then one day I had an epiphany - I realized that I wasn’t a salesman at all, I realized that I was a teacher.  I helped contractors, architects, and designers create superior projects that worked better, and provided a greater value to their customers.  

Once I figured that out, I understood that this role was no different than what I did in the Marine Corps; I ensured that my Marine’s had the tools and skill sets to be successful in combat. My focus at CET is to teach people how to create experiences that solve problems and bring greater value to the entire project.
Hi Doug.

Adam Owens

Director of Sales
I worked as a sales technician for a small family owned integration firm where they trained me to ultimately run my own business. Through my own business I began interacting more with my direct manufacturers. Doug Cuneo called me out of the blue, only speaking to him one other time he offered me a position. I met with Tim and Doug and realized these people believe in the same things I do. Passion for success and providing great care to their customers, I knew I had to come on board.

They brought me into the CET family where my focus is to provide a technical angle and a hands-on approach for all our customers. My goal is to provide a technical level of knowledge that creates confidence for all members of the supply chain.
Hi Adam.

Alex Weinberg

Sales Engineer
Having been raised in rural Pennsylvania, my childhood was spent exploring the outdoors, getting lost almost as much as finding my way. This fascination with the natural world led me to Colorado in search of new adventures.

What I’ve learned most from exploring, both home and abroad, is that the people you meet make up the backbone of your experience and understanding – whether in a personal or work environment. I’m continually inspired by the people I’ve crossed paths with in life.

If we have not met, I look forward to getting to know you!
Hi Alex.

Chris Carboni

Sales Engineer
For over ten years, I have approached the audio video industry from a unique perspective. With a degree in Fashion, I continue to meld aesthetics and design in to every residential and commercial project.

In 2014, I joined the family at CET. It was here that I could finally put my dual passions of technology and design to practical use. I assist contractors, showrooms, and developers to specify the products that enhance the end user’s experience.

As an avid Colorado outdoorsman, I understand that the journey is often more impactful than the destination. That is why I work closely with all facets of a project, from the developer to the contractor, to ensure that the design intent is maintained throughout the entire process.
Hi Chris.

Courtney Byers-Coleman

Inside Sales
It is my personal belief that providing exceptional customer service to all of CET’s clients is the most important role that I can provide within the company.

While each person may not always remember every detail of a specific interaction, conversation, or email, they will however remember how you made them feel. 

It is my goal to make sure each person who interacts with CET feels important. I strive to empower every client - to ensure they are understood and a part of the solution.
Hi Courtney.

Greg White

Sales Engineer
I began my career as a Manufacturers Rep in Indianapolis, Indiana selling and designing Lutron Controls. As an avid mountain biker and skier, my heart had always been set out moving West.

My dream became a reality when CET provided the opportunity to relocate to Colorado. Bringing 13 years of Lighting Control Design and specification experience, I hit the ground running. I am motivated by providing solutions for our customers and being a resource for our design professionals to create energy efficient and comfortable environments for their clients.

I am continually motivated to provide solutions in the form of energy efficient and comfortable environments. And I enjoy seeing each project progress from conceptual design to the finality.
Hi Greg.

Jason Rothe

Sales Engineer
My journey into electronics and technology is credited to an early obsession with electric guitars, amplifiers, and audio equipment. As a teenager, I used to enjoy taking apart and building various pieces of professional audio equipment which eventually led to the completion of a degree in audio engineering.

After spending a couple years on the road in the professional audio industry, I found a new and stationary home in the industrial and commercial low voltage industries in 2009. Throughout my career I have discovered that I am passionate about solving problems through a combination of technology and creativity. Please let me know if there are any items that I can assist you with today!
Hi Jason,

Jason Stencel

Inside Sales
My industry experience began in the United States Navy having been trained as an electronics technician. With nearly 12 years of experience, my knowledge of the audio video industry progressed from initially performing installations to eventually managing multi-million dollar international projects.

The diverse and extensive industry experience I have amassed allows me to provide the customer with insight and technical prowess to solve complex problems. With my role at CET focused on inside sales and technical support, I endeavor to provide elegant solutions for our in-house team and our customers. 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, snowboarding, and learning Taekwondo with my sons.
Hi Jason.

Kayla Binggeli

Systems Quotation Design
After a brief stint in the craft brewing world, I began work in the audio visual industry – quickly finding a niche in Lutron residential lighting control. Adam, Doug, and the CET family were always available to guide me through any complications or questions that arose. They provided me with the confidence and support to manage my projects with leadership and a wealth of technical knowledge. I look forward to providing clients in the commercial sector with the same caliber of reassurance and vigor in their work with us.
Hi Kayla,

Lucas Rains

Sales Engineer
Born and raised in the mountains of Colorado, I have been fortunate enough to call this area home. After serving in the Marine Corps I returned to the western slope where I started my career in the controls industry. After more than 15 years I am still excited, and driven by, the creative problem-solving opportunities that this field offers.

I am proud to be a part of the CET team, and to have the opportunity to support our trade partners throughout the design and build process. Being able to work with a great team of people and build lasting partnerships in this industry has always been a great source of motivation. My goal is to serve as a resource to ensure success for our clients.
Hi Lucas,

Marc Ayoub

Systems Quotation Design
I’ve been in the controls industry in one form or another for 17 years. In that time I have worked on some extraordinary projects and with incredible people. I have learned everything I know today from my peers.

The one component from my career the has eluded me was an organization that is built on knowledge, on furthering the goals of our customers, and without ego.

After moving to Colorado from New York in 2011 I discovered CET and Associates, I knew immediately that this was the place to be. I consider myself lucky to be part of the CET family and I'm excited to help grow the knowledge of our customers, the CET team, and myself.
Hi Marc.

Mark Jeffrey

Quotations Manager
In 1990 I began my career in the electrical industry working for my family-owned electrical wholesale company. Over the next 19 years, I honed my knowledge of the industry and the company moving through all aspects of the business eventually becoming Vice President.

After 46 years in business, the 2009 recession forced us to close our doors. However, when that chapter of life ended, I found a new opportunity with CET where I could apply my extensive electrical knowledge, organizational experience, and problem solving skills. Currently, my focus is on the Industrial Solutions team as the Inside Quotations Manager.
Hi Mark.

Pat Kelly

Sales Engineer
As a long-time CEDIA channel veteran, I strive to share my industry experiences to provide a better environment to those around me. Over the years, I have experienced many enjoyable moments and have been privileged to have forged many close acquaintances along the way. Serendipitously, it was through these close connections that I was able to connect with, and subsequently join, the CET team.

I am extremely excited to be a part of CET as I can further many of my valued friendships, while also being able to discover and develop new partnerships spanning across multiple business sectors. My continued goal is to find simple solutions to complex problems, ultimately creating the best business and personal environment for each of our partners.
