Jonathan Bullock, Hotwire

Years in Industry: 12

Education: Yes

Bullock’s pretty passionate about the two Bs… barbecue and broadband. A native of rural North Carolina, he has strong opinions on both. The barbecue should use a vinegar-based sauce, and the broadband should be everywhere. Over the past year, he’s pursued legislation in Hotwire markets that would allow municipalities, counties and electric cooperatives to partner with operators to deliver fiber broadband and other services to their underserved communities. Bullock has a knack for seeing opportunity that others often miss. His creative thinking led to Hotwire entering the advertising business in the Caribbean via a partnership with Cable Bahamas. Hotwire has essentially created an interconnect introducing south Florida and national brands to the Caribbean markets.
