TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ting Internet, a top-rated fiber-optic Internet Service Provider (ISP) and division of Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX, TSX: TC), is proud to welcome Jill Szuchmacher and her proven Internet leadership to the team as Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Vice-President Networks for Ting Internet.
Szuchmacher joins Ting Internet after executing in high-profile roles, most recently as Vice President of Operations at Google Fiber, where she led strategy, planning, training and analytics for build and field operations. As CSO and EVP Networks for Ting Internet, she will lead a world-class team to drive the Ting Internet business forward.
“This is a key leadership role for Ting Internet and for Tucows,” said Elliot Noss, CEO of Tucows. “The need for fast, reliable Internet access has never been more apparent. 2020 squeezed years of latent change into months. Rapid adoption is a trend we see continuing as people and businesses rely more and more on the Internet to connect. Jill Szuchmacher is precisely the leader we need to ramp and scale Ting Internet to meet these opportunities and navigate the multi-generational transition from coax and copper to fiber.”
In prior roles at Google, Szuchmacher served as Director of Business Development for a range of media-focused products, working with product and engineering teams to forge partnerships and relationships for new and emerging products. Szuchmacher is a graduate of Harvard Business School and brings a wealth of experience—from MTV to Scholastic, from startups to multinational corporations.
“I’ve followed the good work Ting Internet is doing to bring next generation Internet access to people and businesses in towns and cities all across the US. I’m excited to lead on strategy and deployment as we work together to achieve the next level of impact and scale for Ting Internet,” said Jill Szuchmacher, CSO and EVP Networks, Ting Internet. “I look forward to working with the great team at Ting and partnering with communities and local governments to drive toward the shared goal of better Internet access for all.”
