Chris Kyle, Vice President Industry Affairs and Regulatory for Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel), was elected to serve as chairman of the Virginia Cable Telecommunications Association at the trade association’s annual meeting in Williamsburg.

“Mr. Kyle brings a tremendous amount of telecommunications experience to the board and the VCTA is honored that he will be serving as our chairman,” said Ray LaMura, President of the VCTA.

“The VCTA is proud to represent companies such as Shentel.  VCTA member companies own and operate systems that comprise the largest fiber optic network in the Commonwealth allowing Virginia companies to compete globally. It’s companies such as Shentel that provide thousands of rural Virginians access to the Internet.”

At Shentel, Kyle is responsible for negotiating programming agreements, cable acquisitions, and is the primary contact with local, state and federal legislators and regulators. He joined the company in 2003, and has led projects in acquisitions, business development, long range planning and Shentel Cable marketing and sales.  Kyle previously served as secretary of the VCTA board of directors. He also serves on the Board of the Shenandoah Valley Partnership.

“I am deeply appreciative of this opportunity to serve the cable telecommunications association in Virginia,” said Kyle. “The VCTA plays an important role in Virginia for our industry, especially in the policy-making arena. The world of cable telecommunications is fast-paced and exciting and I am proud to represent Shentel as chairman of the VCTA board.”

The VCTA was established in 1966 to promote the cable television and telecommunications services of member companies in the Commonwealth of Virginia to the public, the business community and state officials.  Association membership is comprised of cable systems serving more than 2 million subscribers in Virginia along with more than 100 Associate members who provide goods and services to the cable telecommunications industry.  The VCTA's mission is to support broadband and telecommunications services of member companies to the business community and state officials.
