Previous positions include account manager, director of sales and marketing and director of commercial development and government affairs for some of the country’s largest cable and Internet companies.

“I am happy to be part of the growth of such an exceptional company,” said Kovacheff. “I look forward to continuing to build the business and moving forward into the future with Litestream.”


“Steven is an outstanding senior executive who brings Litestream a great deal of expertise and leadership,” stated Bill Haggarty, CEO of the company. “With Steven as a part of the Litestream team, we expect to see significant expansion of our business all along the southeast coast of Florida. Communities will welcome Steven’s vast industry knowledge and his ability to show them how Litestream’s state-of-the-art broadband services, White Glove conversion methods and hallmark customer service can be brought into their communities and satisfy their residents.”


Litestream specializes in the construction of new broadband communications systems in established communities. The company works with communities and associations to design, build and deliver a newly-built, modern system throughout the community, replacing the outdated infrastructure currently in the ground. This new broadband infrastructure ensures higher quality signals and more capacity and is not burdened by the repairs and weathering inevitably accompanying the original system that has been in the ground for many years. Litestream’s engineers design systems that bring fiber optics throughout the community to provide service quality which current networks are unable to achieve.

Litestream is focused on the replacement of existing cable infrastructure within gated communities statewide. Its management team collectively has over 130 years of cable industry experience, including all phases from construction to customer service. For more information, call 239-249-3327.
