UFD logoUnited Fiber & Data (UFD) today welcomes three new members to its leadership team. Joining UFD’s Chief Operating Officer Chris Lodge is former Vonage president Michael Tribolet as Acting Chief Executive Officer, Brian Mass as Acting CFO and Charles Gaspari, Esq. as business development advisor. The three executives are immediately transitioning into their roles and will assist UFD in completing the preparation and construction of its cutting-edge data center and fiber infrastructure.

Tribolet, Mass and Gaspari join UFD at an exciting time, as construction on UFD’s 13-mile metro fiber ring interconnecting the largest carrier hotels in Lower Manhattan has just recently gotten underway. Additionally, UFD has announced its plans to break ground on its first Tier-4 data center in York, Pennsylvania by the end of the year. UFD has secured long-term contracts with some of the industry’s top names for its diverse long-haul fiber backbone extending from Manhattan to Ashburn, Virginia.

“By unanimous decision, our board of directors voted to hire Mr. Tribolet, Mr. Mass and Mr. Gaspari to lead our company. They’re joining an operational team that has been hard at work constructing our New York fiber ring and preparing for construction of our data center and fiber infrastructure. We feel this management team will keep UFD on the forefront of data transference and storage, while positioning the company for future success,” said UFD Chairman Chad Taylor.

The UFD team’s extensive industry experience is rooted in CLEC, dark fiber, data center and cloud computing infrastructure. The team has a standout track record, which includes the generation of over $3 billion in fiber services and data center revenues over the past 20 years.
