ALPHARETTA, GA – FiberLight, LLC® President and COO Kevin B. Coyne will serve on the COMPTEL Board of Directors following his election this month during the organization’s annual meeting in Dallas, Texas.
COMPTEL is a leading communications industry association representing service providers and suppliers through trade shows, networking, education, and policy advocacy before Congress and the Federal Communications Commission. Mr. Coyne was elected to represent competitive telecommunications providers and will serve on the Audit Committee. Board members determine COMPTEL’s direction through the establishment of policies and bylaws, while the Audit Committee provides oversight of the organization’s accounting practices.
Mr. Coyne attributes his board selection to 10 years of experience in the public accounting field as a Certified Public Accountant as well as his vast knowledge about competitive communications service providers and supplier partners. As a board representative, Mr. Coyne would like to encourage the organization to further meet the needs of all competitive telecommunications providers.
“I am excited about the opportunity to represent COMPTEL business members on the issues that directly affect us. For instance, if our business representatives want to own and operate their own facilities, rather than compete against the large entities, we need to learn how to eliminate the incumbent from the last mile and work more cohesively as a group to achieve that goal,” Mr. Coyne said.
FiberLight Founder and CEO Michael P. Miller is pleased his company’s leadership is taking a more active role in determining industry policy.
“COMPTEL serves as a much-needed educational and networking resource for the telecommunications industry, while being a strong advocate for our industry,” Mr. Miller said. “I believe Kevin offers the leadership experience necessary to benefit telecommunications suppliers and providers, while providing a voice for the membership group.”
