Faletti also was head of Human Resources for MCI's Midwest division, where he built a new, full service HR function that helped the division grow from $250 million to more than $1 billion. He later served as vice president of human resources at Ameritech, where he provided HR services to thousands of employees in a billion dollar-plus business unit. In addition, Faletti has served as senior vice president of technical services for a high tech, publicly traded, start up company.
