Positron, the leader in developing and manufacturing high voltage isolation protection products, announced today that Joe Boyles has been appointed Regional Manager of the Southeast Region of the United States. Boyles, a 40-year veteran in the telecom industry, brings to Positron extensive expertise from working many years within the Bell system.
“As Positron continues to expand its business within the Southeast US, we’re delighted to have someone of Joe’s caliber and experience, join our company,” says Claude Brisson, COO of Positron. “Joe is a respected professional with extensive knowledge and engineering skills and has many contacts in the Southeastern US in both the power utility and telecom industries. The breadth and depth of his experience is remarkable and will contribute substantially to Positron’s growth.”
Boyles, who holds a Bachelors Degree in Engineering from the University of Tennessee, worked for BellSouth Telecommunications for nearly 35 years, of which he spent 20 years as the ICEP Engineer (Transmission and Protection) for the state of Tennessee. For the past four years, he has been providing fiber-optic high voltage isolation equipment and services to the telecommunications and power industries in the Southeast US. Some of these services include design/installation and training, as well as soil resistivity measurement and Ground Potential Rise (GPR) studies. Boyles is also a contributing member of ATIS-PEG (Protection Engineers Group) and IEEE, serving on the Wireline subcommittee, which develops and maintains industry standards.
“As utility companies accelerate the roll-out of Smart Grids, the requirement for reliable, secure and available communication links is ever more critical,” says Don Sesia, Product Manager for Positron. “The need for Positron’s isolation solutions continues to grow and Joe’s addition to the team, with his knowledge and broad experience, will ensure we continue providing the high level of expert support and counsel to our customers that Positron is known for.”
“I’m excited about joining Positron,” says Boyles. “I have been a long time customer of Positron and have always admired the company for their product quality as well as their commitment to the high voltage isolation standards arena. There are only a few times in one’s career where you can truly make a difference. I'm happy to be with Positron, and look forward to a long association.”
