Infrastructure Networks Welcomes Royce Holland to its Board of Managers
Infrastructure Networks, a Houston, Texas-based provider of broadband wireless networks to Critical Infrastructure Industries, is please to announce the addition of Royce Holland to its Board of Managers. Holland brings 40 years of experience in the energy and communications industries to the Infrastructure Networks team.
Royce entered the energy industry in 1971, providing engineering and project management of engineering, design, construction, and performance testing of a wide range of steam and electric power generation facilities including coal, natural gas, and biomass fuels. In 1989, he became President, COO and co-founder of MFS Communications, serving in that capacity until 1996, when the company was acquired by Worldcom in a multi-billion dollar transaction. He then became Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Allegiance Telecom, which provided one stop shopping of various voice and data services to medium and small enterprises across the USA from 1997 to 2004. Allegiance was acquired by XO Communications in 2004. Royce went on to join McLeodUSA as CEO in January 2006. McLeodUSA was acquired by PAETEC in early 2008. Like Allegiance, McLeodUSA and PAETEC focus on providing bundled communications services to medium and small enterprises. Today, Royce serves as Executive Chairman of Masergy, a position he has held since February 2008, after serving on the Board for three years. Masergy provides virtual private networks to large corporations with multiple locations predominately across North America and throughout Europe and the Asia Pacific Region.
In addition to these positions, Holland was appointed by President George H.W. Bush to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC), and by Governor George W. Bush to the Texas E-Government Task Force.
“Our team is truly honored to have Mr. Holland join the Board of Managers. The company will benefit greatly from his unmatched competitive drive and entrepreneurial insight, experience and expertise.” stated Stan Hughey, CEO of Infrastructure Networks. Mr. Hughey continued, “Mr. Holland’s knowledge and guidance will be invaluable as the company continues to deploy the first network of its kind, dedicated to the needs of Critical Infrastructure Industries.”
Founded in March of 2011, Infrastructure Networks boasts a Board of Managers already well stocked with notable and highly experienced members of the energy and telecommunications communities. In addition to Holland, the Board consists of company founders Jack Fields, Stan Hughey and Kori Ugalde, as well as Scott Crist, Todd Binet and David Miller.
