Metronet names Va. market leader
Andrew Brummette is based in Norfolk
Fiber optic company Metronet hired Andrew Brummette in April to be its Virginia market leader, the company announced Monday.
Evansville, Indiana-based Metronet is expanding to Norfolk, its first foray into Virginia, where it will build a fiber optic network and offer internet service to city residents. Brummette is based in Norfolk, where Metronet has 11 associates based, along with three more remote workers. Metronet plans to hire other local market management positions, sales, customer service employees and service technicians to support the Norfolk area.
The company began construction earlier this year and has laid more than 30,000 feet of fiber cables so far, and it plans to start offering service to customers in the fall. Metronet serves more than 250 communities across the country.
Brummette joins Metronet from telecommunications company Segra, where he was a financial planning and analysis manager. He has more than 15 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, in sales, finance and business modeling, according to a news release from Metronet.
“Metronet’s fiber optic network and commitment to a superior customer experience has continuously impressed me, and I look forward to leading the Metronet experience in Norfolk and other communities as we expand,” Brummette said in a statement. “I’m excited to bring our future-proofed services to more residents and businesses throughout the state to aid in economic development while ensuring that residents, schools and businesses have access to the most reliable and fast internet speeds available.”
