* A few words about your company: Adelphia is the region’s premiere provider of cable entertainment and broadband services (and the fifth largest in the country), with an amazing array of new services to be launched soon.
* Recent accomplishments:
Transitioning from the CLEC side of the telecom industry to the MSO/cable services side, which honestly, has a much more promising future.
* Biggest career break: Gaining years of corporate and telecom experience in a family-run phone company.
* The toughest part of your job: Same as the accomplishment really.
* Someone you admire: My father and grandfather.
* About your family: Married to a lovely native Colorado Springs gal, no kids by choice, two yellow labs.
* Something else you’d like to accomplish: Running a successful telecom organization.
* How your business will change in the next decade: CLECs will be a footnote in the history of telecom, and the survivors will be cable operators and ILECs.
* What book are you currently reading? I usually have a few going at once, depending on what I’m in the mood for – “The 48 Laws of Power,” “Parker’s Wine Buyer’s Guide,” “Power Thinking.”
* What is the one thing you would change about Colorado Springs? The things I would change are already being worked on – better interstate infrastructure, downtown development, water management, but I guess the next area would be overall growth management.
