Analyzed liability issues with in-depth analysis of insurance coverage, unveiling multiple issues of inadequate coverage, which led to improved cost savings and risk management.

Start-Up Wireless Operations – Purchased and deployed $3.5M wireless tower project, including cellular phone, Internet, and fiber optic backhaul in collaboration with Wittenberg Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Acquisition – Conducted and led feasibility analysis prior to purchase of stagnant public broadband utility.  Engineered, planned, and implemented $2M Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) startup operation and retail store in the City of Antigo.

Revenue Growth – Revitalized plant and business operations, delivering a fiscally solvent entity outperforming prior years and yielding doubled subscriber numbers combined with third year positive cash flow.
