Murray, Vermont’s Chief Information Officer, to lead Vermont Telecommunications Authority

first_imgThomas E Murray, Vermont s CIO and Commissioner of the Department of Information and Innovation, has been named as the Executive Director of the Vermont Telecommunications Authority. The VTA was established by the Legislature in 2007 as part of Governor Douglas proposal to make Vermont the nation s first e-state. Its mission is to ensure Vermonters have access to affordable broadband and cellular service throughout the state. I want to thank Tom for accepting this vital mission at a very critical time in the extended development of the state s infrastructure, said VTA s Board Chairman Chris Dutton. Under Tom s leadership and vision, I m confident that Vermonters will soon see these important services available throughout the state.”I am pleased to join the VTA team and help lead this effort, said Murray. Whether it is for economic development, public safety, smart grid or improving educational opportunities, ubiquitous broadband and cellular services are essential to the state’s future. The VTA has a unique opportunity to build public/private partnerships that will ensure every Vermonter has broadband service available to them and that we have cellular coverage where we need it. While there certainly are challenges bringing these services to rural areas, the recent federal stimulus funding and the resources that the state and private sector have put forth should assist with moving Vermont toward improving these services statewide.” Tom has sixteen years of leadership experience in the telecommunications field having worked with TDS Telecom; Rural Cellular Corporation (UNICEL) and as Director of Telecommunications Infrastructure for the State of Vermont. Tom grew up in Montpelier and graduated from Western New England College with a BS in Business Administration. He currently resides with wife Cynthia and their two children in Middlesex.Source: Governor’s office. 10.19.2009last_img read more
