In early 2010, Global Telecoms Business selected the top 40 leaders under 40 in the telecom industry. GTB chose these 40 individuals based on who the most exciting leaders in telecom are today and who will have an impact on the future. Among that list is Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. As Allied Fiber is currently constructing a next generation dark fiber network throughout the United States, Hunter is well qualified as an exciting leader in the industry.
To culminate the honor of being selected for this award, on September 27-28, the forty individuals will gather in London for a summit and awards ceremony. At the summit, Hunter will participate as a panel speaker. The panels include discussions on the challenges the telecom industry will face over the next five to ten years, what the role of telcos will be over the next decade, what technologies will shape the future and so on.
