JACKSON, Miss. (PRWEB) November 15, 2022
Unitek Global Services, a leading provider of OSP and ISP Planning, Design, Permitting and Project Management Solutions for North America’s broadband infrastructure, announced today the promotion of Derek Hutchins, to the role of Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.
Mr. Hutchins is a longtime industry veteran and a founding member of Hutchins Telecom. Under his leadership since 2007, Hutchins Telecom quickly became one of the premier long-haul fiber development and service companies in the U.S. It was this impressive growth and strong reputation for quality that led to the acquisition of the company as a subsidiary of Unitek Global Services in 2018.
From August 2018 to present, Derek continued to lead Hutchins as the subsidiary’s President. “His impressive leadership skills, deep industry knowledge, and strong work ethic is what led to his appointment as COO of UniTek,” said Charlie L. Smith, CEO UniTek Global Services, Inc.
In his new role, Mr. Hutchins’ primary responsibility will be overseeing the day-to-day service operations of UniTek and its family of companies. He will be working in close conjunction with the organization’s other executive leaders and those of each operating subsidiary as Unitek continues their efforts to provide world class infrastructure services to the rapidly growing North American broadband sector.
