The Leading Event for Broadband Systems Operators

Brian Mefford

VP of Broadband Strategy


Brian Mefford joined VETRO with a wealth of experience helping shape federal and state broadband programs and leading community broadband efforts in rural areas. He founded Connected Nation, a nonprofit focused on enriching community broadband access and led the spinout of CNX, a platform for establishing public/private broadband network deployment partnerships. That provided the nexus at which he first met and worked with the founders of VETRO to develop a 5G asset-management solution. Mefford has worked with government leaders at all levels to advance innovation, providing testimony regularly for state legislatures and the U.S. Congress and consulting with federal agencies including the FCC, NTIA, USDA and the State Department. He has served as adjunct faculty in the University of Kentucky’s Gatton School of Business and Economics, teaching entrepreneurship in the MBA program. He received a B.S. in economics from Centre College and an International MBA from Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management. His mission is to grow and optimize broadband access around the world, with a focus on rural areas.
