KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Steve Weed, Chief Executive Officer of WaveDivision Holdings LLC, announced today the addition of three executives to the Wave leadership team, as well as strategic changes in current executive roles, to position the company for continued expansion. Wave, a fast-growing provider of advanced cable TV, true high-speed Internet and Phone services, serving residential and business customers in major West Coast markets, acquired the Northwest assets of Broadstripe earlier this year, and recently announced an agreement to acquire Seattle area fiber carrier, Black Rock Cable.

Steve Friedman, Wave's current Chief Operating Officer, has been promoted to the position of President and COO. With more than 28 years of experience owning and operating cable systems, Friedman joined Weed as an investment partner at Wave in 2003 – "the Steve's" have been running the company together for 9 years. Weed stated, "This promotion speaks to Steve's tremendous contribution to Wave's successes to-date, and his ability to play a key role in leading our future growth."

Wave's current Chief Marketing Officer, Arah Peck, will become EVP of Strategic Development. Arah will concentrate more exclusively on key customer support initiatives to ensure Wave continues its legacy as a customer-centric organization. Weed added, "Driven by its number one priority, the customer, Wave will need this on-going focus in our future growth, and Arah is the perfect person to lead and maintain that integrity for us."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
