LAS VEGAS -- Members of COMPTEL, the leading trade association for the competitive communications industry, yesterday elected 14 companies to serve on the COMPTEL Board of Directors for the 2014-2016 term during the annual membership meeting at the COMPTEL PLUS Spring 2014 Convention & EXPO. These newly elected board members join the others who are currently serving their 2013-2015 terms.

Today, at its first meeting with the newly elected directors, the Board selected Deb Ward, CEO of TSI, as its chairwoman. Chris Murray, senior vice president of Public Policy at EarthLink, was selected as vice chairman; and Jim Butman, group president at TDS, was re-elected as the association’s treasurer. Rounding out the Executive Committee are four at-large members, including Robert Beaty, president of Impact Telecom; Dale R. Schmick, former COMPTEL Chairman and COO of YourTel America Inc.; Julia Strow, co-founder of Cbeyond Inc.; and Ben Vos, vice president of Business Operations for Sprint Wholesale & Emerging Solutions.

“I am honored to be selected by my peers on the board to serve as the first chairwoman of COMPTEL,” said Ward. “Looking ahead, I see great opportunities for the association to create even more value for our members. I am excited to work closely with COMPTEL members, the board and staff to strengthen and grow our membership, increase the networking opportunities at our shows and successfully address the challenges our industry is facing on the policy front.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
