Grande Communications board of directors today named Scott Ferguson the companys interim president and CEO, as the company last week said it would do after announcing Bill Morrows resignation.
Morrow last week resigned as CEO, and president and co-founder Joe Ross just announced he, too, is stepping down.
Morrow is to remain on the companys board of directors and take part in special projects, while Grande says Ross will stay on as an employee to provide special counsel to Ferguson.
“We mutually agreed that Joe would step aside as president to allow new leadership to build a fresh team for the next stage of Grande’s growth,” Ferguson said in a statement. “While change is hard, especially leadership changes, Grande has an opportunity to take the next leap forward in our evolution. Grande is built upon the passion and commitment of more than 900 employees and, after six years, we have become an established company in our own right, bringing choice to consumers and forcing innovation in our industry.”
Grande sells Internet access, local and long-distance phone service, cable television and wireless home security services to consumers and businesses in Texas and delivers national network services to enterprises and communications providers.
