Tell us about yourself

I’ve been in the telecommunications business my whole life. In fact, my roots run deep in the telephony world. My father worked 35 years in the industry and my older brother retired as a GM from a Southern Illinois telephone cooperative. I grew up with the changes in technology and it was a part of my everyday life. I’ve held many titles in the industry, including; installation, outside plant, engineering, operations, central office, project management and management. I’ve worked for small telecoms and for communications giants like Verizon. I love this industry and the pace at which it grows. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

Little-known fact

I love horses.
