Meet the Team


Kip Brettingen | President | (763) 201-8010
I started my career in 1985 with American Sharecom (now Level3). At American Sharecom we sold long distance and data services only to business customers. I then went to LDDS (MCI) continuing to sell ld to business customers. My last corp employeer was Sprint Communication selling long distance and data. I found that although I enjoyed working with large business customers I wanted to be able to give them a lasting relationship that could offer more products from just one source.

I took a leap of faith and started my own small business doing just that. I started out selling ATT long distance to businesses across MN. Four years later and lots of hard work, I was able to hire my first employee. We continued to sell ld and data up to 1998 at which point US West allowed competition to sell in the 14 state Bell region. As of today we currently have 8 full time employees which bring a total of 70+ years of telecom experience to our customers. I enjoy working with our many different clients and value the lasting relationships I have made over the past 20+ years.

I started Integrated Communications in 1989 and enjoy working with all our clients on a daily basis, and being part of a positive telecom experience. I enjoy being with friends and family. My beautiful wife of 25 years, Pamela and I have three wonderful children. Pamela has a new passion with an occasional store in Hopkins, called Garden Party Gallery. Stop in and see her, the first Thur-Sun of each month. Our eldest, Holly has graduated college and works for NorthMarq in Bloomington. Our son Joey is a junior at University of Minnesota and majoring in turf management, and has an internship this summer at Hazeltine. Our youngest Hope is a junior in high school and involved in hockey, track and softball.

I started with the Integrated Communications team beginning of 2015, my goal is to provide knowledge and expertise to my clients in all aspects of communications technology. With over 14 years of industry experience, I focus on the right solution while offering options that allow me to educate my customers to what they have today, understand their business goals and uncover any business challenges their organization may be enduring. I believe for every business challenge, there is a technology solution and it is my job to provide the solutions.

I have two daughters that I enjoy being with and ensure I have an active lifestyle including coaching and playing hockey & soccer as well as snowboarding & triathlons. I finished my first Ironman the summer of 2014. Needless to say, I am always on the go!

Nate Young | Consultant | (763) 201-8005
I have worked with Integrated Communications since October of 2009 and have been in the telecommunications industry since 2006. I love being a consultant to my clients and having the ability to work with them on any aspect of their communications with any vendor in the market. It allows me to deliver the right product and technology for the business 100% of the time.

When I am not at work solving the world’s problems, I keep myself busy with the normal MN activities. I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, snowboarding, traveling, snowmobiling, softball and just about anything outside.

Mary Heinen | Account Manager| (763) 201-8021
Friends, family and just about everyone who knows me will tell you three things. One: I’m a current events junkie. Two: I take great satisfaction in planting, harvesting and eating the vegetables and herbs I grow in my backyard garden (yum!) and Three: My family is the epicenter of my life.


I am one of the newest members of the ICI team and consider myself very fortunate to be working with such a great group of people. My husband and I are food and wine enthusiasts and love to entertain family and friends. We also love to travel to California wine country and anywhere in Europe – especially France and Italy.

Thalina Kleis | Account Manager (763) 201-8020
My life has been an amazing journey. Daily, I am a chef, chauffeur, ATM machine, maid, employee, friend, daughter…the list goes on. Mostly, I am a mom of two wonderful kids that I love dearly. They keep me busy as a spectator with all their activities. I enjoy traveling and am always looking for a new and exciting place to visit. Minnesota summers are my favorite time of the year.

Greg Hannon | Independent Consultant (763) 201-8015
I have been in the phone business for 25 years. My Motto: ”Think of me as an employee of yours, but you don’t have to pay for me.” We are reimbursed by the carriers we recommend. I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have a married son who blessed us with a beautiful granddaughter and handsome grandson. We also have a married daughter who blessed us on St Patty’s Day 2014 with identical twin girls. My favorite past times are golf and ALL Minnesota sports; good and bad.
