Mr. Rabb takes a “hands on” approach to the management of his company and is often seen on job sites, overseeing the quality and successful implementation of projects. He is very intimate to the consultive sales process and the overall design of Transwave solutions.
Mr. Rabb’s background in the RF field dates back to the time served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. Raymond was an Electronics Specialist aboard the US INCHON for six (6) years. During his tour of duty with the Navy, he was exposed to many aspects of wireless communications including the installation and repair of vital ship to ship and ship to land electronic systems. His time in the Navy prepared him well for private sector positions that he was to soon to embark upon.
After leaving the US Navy with an honorable discharge, Mr. Rabb joined LJ Raymart in 1974, a prominent provider of mobile radio, CCTV, and remote control equipment in the Western New York area. There he held many positions working his way up to Technical Manager of its network systems division. At LJ Raymart, he was instrumental in the design of many cutting edge microwave systems at that time for clients ranging from Public Safety, Cellular Carriers, and a variety of public and private entities that are now enjoying the benefits of microwave technology that result of the divestiture of the telecommunications industry. Mr. Rabb then took a position with CSC, Corp., as the Vice-President and General Manager of the company. There, once again, he was instrumental in the design of many critical communication systems for both public and private entities throughout the Northeast.
