One Word that Best Describes Me: Efficient
Over the last nearly four decades, GCI has grown to become the largest telecommunications provider in Alaska with almost $1 billion in revenue. Ormberg continues to negotiate contract renewals with several major programming groups, continuing to grow the GCI Channel viewership and expand over-the-top content and other Internet-delivered video services. Pidgeon serves as a strategic leader for legal, regulatory, compliance, and policy initiatives, playing an instrumental role in GCI’s growth and development.
What does the future look like for skinny bundles and flexible packaging? Bright … if innovative providers could get some flexibility with our programming contracts.
