MARQUETTE—Peninsula Fiber Network LLC, a provider of fiber-optic telecommunications services in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, has named Jennifer Greenburg as its new vice president of governmental affairs.
Greenburg most recently served as vice president of the Telecommunications Association of Michigan. Since 1998, she represented the state’s rural telecommunications providers before the Michigan legislature. Her lobbying efforts securing policy changes for rights-of-way permitting, video franchise reform, and broadband deployment have contributed to the growth and stability of the telecommunications industry in Michigan over the course of her tenure.
James Brogan, vice president and board secretary of PFN and president of Hiawatha Communications Inc., said: “Like much of the country, Michigan’s rural broadband political environment is very dynamic. Jennifer has been a very successful advocate for providers for years. We look forward to working with her and building on this advocacy for years to come.”
Added Scott Randall, PFN general manager: “With our Next Generation E-911 services now reaching every county in Michigan, our connection to policy makers is even more critical. We have been looking for an exceptional leader to oversee our governmental affairs, and she is the right person at the right time. We look forward to Jennifer’s contributions as part of our leadership team.”
Prior to her time at TAM, Greenburg was legislative director for State Sen. Mat Dunaskiss, former chairman of the state Senate technology and energy committee. Greenburg earned a Bachelor of Arts in international relations from Michigan State University and will reside in Lansing.
