Owner/ President and CEO
Sunset Digital

Paul Elswick is co-founder and CEO of Sunset Digital Communications, Inc. Mr. Elswick is responsible for the conception and design of the Sunset Network - one of the first projects to promote economic development via ultra-high-speed Internet access. Mr. Elswick's experience with creating enormous achievements out of big ideas has gained him a reputation in the industry for success, and he also consults with other areas that wish to start their own fiber optic networks. His most recent work has included integrating fiber optic services with electrical system management.

Through volunteerism and an interest in connecting others, he has helped bring high-speed connectivity to under-served areas of the country. Under his leadership Sunset has pioneered the laying of fiber optic with water lines and in the power space, thus cutting the cost of building regional fiber optic networks. He forged strong partnerships with other companies, making Sunset one of the most interconnected fiber-optic networks in the region. In 2010, through his vision and decade of experience in pioneering regional Active Ethernet networks, Sunset was able to obtain a total of $44M through two broadband stimulus awards from the Rural Utility Service.

Mr. Elswick holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Virginia Tech. He holds three US Patents (two software-related). He previously worked for a major airline where he is rated in the De Havilland Dash 8, Boeing 777 and Airbus 319/320 aircraft, among others.
