I am very excited and honored to announce the addition of a few new highly skilled and experienced IT solutions architects to the Open Spectrum Family:
Jeff spent 11 years with XO Communications, one of the largest IT Infrastructure, Managed Network and IP transit and transport providers in the USA. Prior to leaving in July 2011, he served as the General Manager for the West Coast where he developed a keen understanding of the economics driving each of the available network specific solutions available in the market. The depth and bredth of his experience in the industry has afforded him an impressive network of key engineers, decision makers and senior management at telecommunications companies around the world. In turn, he now leverages his connections and experience to ensure his clients receive the best terms, pricing and SLA’s available. Jeff is a husband and enjoys coaching his two boys in little league baseball… and soon coaching his 2 year old daughter on the softball fields as well. He is a resident of Pleasanton, CA and when not busy helping clients or on a ball field, you may occasionally find him on the golf course.
