Telco Leaders Return Trevor Bonnstetter To NECA Board Of Directors

October 31st, 2014 by Carrie Huckeby

MAYFIELD, Ky.—Trevor Bonnstetter has won a second term representing rural telecommunications providers on the National Exchange Carrier Association (NECA) board of directors.

Bonnstetter is the CEO of Telecom Management Services, based in Mayfield, Kentucky. In that capacity he also serves as CEO of WK&T Telecommunications Cooperative and Ardmore Telephone Company. Together the two companies provide broadband, voice and other technology based services to more than 20,000 homes and businesses in Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama.

As a membership association of U.S. local telecommunications companies, NECA helps more than 1,000 systems across rural America deliver high-speed multi-use broadband services. “NECA’s impact has expanded dramatically from its original mission,” says Bonnstetter. “Today’s NECA is also focused on providing resources, thought leadership and support as we tackle some of our toughest trials yet for rural telecommunications providers. Our industry is changing, and NECA is helping us influence the new industry reality.”

Bonnstetter was first elected to the NECA board in 2008. “I am proud of the work NECA is doing to help its member bring service to rural America,” he says. “Our efforts on issues such as rural call completion and a standalone broadband mechanism are paying off — and the result is that the people in our service areas have access to technology that improves their quality of life.

“I appreciate the confidence placed in me by leaders in the telecommunications industry through this election process,” Bonnstetter adds. “It’s an honor to have been part of the progress the past 6 years. I remain excited to work through the NECA board to continue helping our industry meet today’s challenges while doing what we do best — keeping our rural communities connected.”
