Brian Lynch is retiring from Mishawaka-based Schurz Communications Inc. after seven years as senior vice president of broadband. His retirement is effective Dec. 31.
Lynch has been with Schurz for 14 years, also serving as vice president of cable operations before his current position. Before that he was president of Antietam, which is now part of Schurz’s portfolio of broadband companies.
“Brian has earned the respect of his peers, his team members and the entire industry over the course of his three decades in cable and broadband,” said John Reardon, president and CEO of Schurz Communications, in a press release. “He is a strong strategic thinker and a dedicated leader, who has kept Antietam Broadband, and the entire Schurz broadband division, ahead of the competition through his focus on delivering excellent customer service and value.”
Schurz’s broadband portfolio includes Antietam Broadband in Maryland, Burlington Telecom in Vermont, Hiawatha Broadband in Minnesota, Long Lines Broadband in Iowa and South Dakota, NKTelco in Ohio, and Orbitel Communications in Arizona.
Schurz Communications appointed Ramona Heine, founder and shareholder of Heine & Kim Fiduciary Partners LLC, and David Olivencia, CEO and co-founder of Angeles Investors, to its board of directors on April 1.
Schurz was founded in 1872 when Alfred Miller and Elmer Crockett founded the South Bend Tribune, which now is owned by Gannett. The company focuses on technology that shares information on a global scale.
