His experience at Google Fiber, where he led network planning, expansion, design, and operations for fiber-to-the-home infrastructure, and at Verizon, as a Region President and as Vice President in the Wireline Transformation group, give him keen insight into the opportunities within Frontier’s operations in 29 states.
