One Word that Best Describes Me: Teammate

Wave continues to build itself into one of the most powerful broadband B2B players in big tech markets like Seattle and Silicon Valley. Weed and Knorr have each served as ACA chairman and have put their fingerprints all over the tier 2/tier 3 sector of the industry. Schattenkerk is the chair of the NCTC. A year ago, Wave announced that Zeitz would serve as the company’s president and COO. Also in 2015, the company announced the acquisition of Layer42 Networks, a provider of B2B Internet connectivity, colocation and data transport services. Additionally, Schattenkerk has led successful negotiations with AMC and NBCU, making sure that Wave has the cash for its acquisitions and technology innovations.
