Broadband Infrastructure Company ByVerTek Appoints Telecom Veteran as Chief Operating Officer

DECEMBER 5, 2023 — BOCA RATON, Fla. — Broadband construction and engineering services company ByVerTek today announced it has brought on communications technology industry veteran Gary Gadson to serve in its newly created Chief Operating Officer position.

“Gary’s deep experience in the fiber optics and telecom sectors make him ideally suited to head up our operations,” said ByVerTek Founder and Chief Executive Officer Andrew J. Healey. “Having his steady hand at the helm frees me up to focus on strategic initiatives to better serve our clients’ new focus on “last mile” and our own growth and acquisition efforts.”

One of the largest, MBE-certified diverse suppliers in the sector, ByVerTek provides project management and skilled technicians to build, upgrade and maintain the physical infrastructure that delivers high-speed internet, video, voice and wireless, and IoT services across the United States. The company is now investing to support major Telecom Companies’ and MSOs’ shift to extend fiber all the way to the home, multi-dwelling unit or business through enhanced training and automation.

“The transition to “last mile” requires smaller teams and independent technicians with the broad capabilities to work autonomously,” said new Chief Operating Officer Gary Gadson. “We will be re-engineering operations to meet this need by heightening training and enhancing processes with new automation technologies.”

Gary Gadson brings 20+ years experience as a telecom operations executive and organizational change agent. His previous roles include Interim Chief Executive Officer and Board Member for leading Florida fiber-optics telecommunications provider Summit Broadband, Vice President of Operations for American Virtual Cloud Technologies, and numerous executive positions at AT&T. He earned his MBA at Georgetown University and Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
