Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (SHENTEL) has announced Tom Whitaker, Sr. Vice President-Cable, has been appointed to the board of the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC). The NCTC represents 750 small and mid-sized independent cable operators across the U.S., of which Shentel is one.

A total of four new members were added to the NCTC board of directors in late July. In addition to Whitaker, Katie Espeseth - Vice President of EPB Chattanooga, Brad Moline - President of Allo Communications, and Matt Weller - President of All West Communications.

In a press release, the NCTC noted that the four were selected for their innovative work to bring exceptional products and services to their customers and added that the incoming board members are respected industry leaders with expertise in broadband, finance, operations, and engineering.

Whitaker leads the cable segment at Shentel. He has 30+ years of experience building and operating wired and wireless communications networks, working with both startup companies and established service operators. “I am excited to serve an organization that has played such a pivotal role in leveling the playing field for small, independent cable companies,” Whitaker said. “I look forward to participating in the future growth of this great cooperative.”

NCTC board members commit to a three-year term and work in partnership with NCTC leaders to support its member companies. Names of the full board of directors are available on the NCTC website.
