Grande Communications (Booth 1310) new head executive, Roy Chestnutt, is leading the company as it comes to this years COMPTEL PLUS show. Grande, which sells Internet, phone, cable and home security services to consumers and businesses in Texas, as well as national network services to enterprises and communications providers, named Roy Chestnutt to lead the company.
Chestnutt is a former senior vice president of Sprint Nextel Corp., where he was responsible for the general business segment. He took the reins Monday, Feb. 13.
From what Ive witnessed so far, Grande is a strong company that has remained true to its values since the beginning, Chestnutt said. I look forward to working with the board, executive team and employee base to continue the success that has been achieved in such a short period by honoring the value system, leading through innovation, and making the occasional, yet necessary, shifts to remain strong in an increasingly competitive environment.
Roy will be a tremendous asset to Grande with his abilities to build and lead high performing teams, combined with his extensive sales and marketing experience, said Grande Board Chair James Mansour. His skills will be critical to Grande as the company focuses more on organic customer growth.
