NAPLES, Fla. (January 25, 2016) – Litestream, a Florida-based telecommunications provider focused on delivering Internet, cable television and voice services to private communities, has named Brad Ranson as its new Director of Sales and Operations for the state of Florida.

Ranson brings 30 years of experience in the telecommunications business to the Litestream team, and along with it, an extensive knowledge of the industry. He was most recently Director of Sales for Summit Broadband in Southwest Florida and previously served as Director of Sales for Windstream for four years. He has held management positions with Sprint/CenturyLink and Level 3, managing multiple sectors nationwide.

Ranson will be based in Naples, where his duties will include overseeing the teams responsible for new business generation as well as growing existing business and keeping clients’ needs met. As Litestream is the only cable and Internet provider solely focused on providing superior service to bulk residential communities, Ranson is confident in Litestream’s ability to offer a level of service outside the reach of all other competitors.

“I’m very excited about the technology we have to offer at Litestream,” Ranson explained. “It’s a company with a focus on delivering customers a more customized experience for whatever their needs may be, and that makes us different. We’re unique in this industry. We’re the only ones who can offer people a true boutique experience. I couldn’t be happier to be part of this team. We have a great future ahead of us.”

“Brad’s experience in telecommunications sales is the deepest in the industry, and we are thrilled he chose to join Litestream. His background with large carriers ensures that he knows exactly why Litestream’s focus on providing service to homeowner’s association-managed communities makes such a difference,” said JD Trudel, Southwest Florida General Manager for Litestream.
