“I am excited to join a broadband technology company that has a dual purpose: helping to deliver vital communications services to varied markets while expanding enterprise business,” said new iRis Networks CEO, Chris Clark. “Having access to robust, reliable broadband connectivity is more important today than ever as many people have shifted to working virtually. Being part of a company that ensures this connectivity is an honor.”
The Lebanon Democrat reports that prior to joining the regional broadband fiber transport company serving Tennessee and surrounding states, Clark was a General Manager at Lumen Technologies.
“We are delighted to welcome Chris as the leader of iRis Networks.
