John Hoffmann, President/CEO of Gervais Telephone Company/DataVision Communications, has retired. Hoffmann served as the President/CEO of the company for the last 18 years and has worked in telecommunications for 49 years.
“When I started at Gervais Telephone, we were introducing email and web browsing over dial-up modems. What a time of change! Now we have super fast Internet delivered via fiber which provides us voice service, video, and even allows our devices to talk to each other,” said Hoffmann.
Upon several industry-members’ recommendations, the board of Gervais Telephone Company/DataVision Communications has hired Renee Willer as the new President/CEO, effective April 1, 2016. Willer comes to DataVision with 26 years of experience in the telecommunications industry. Her previous employment includes Frontier Communications, Verizon, and GTE.
“I wanted to work for a smaller company that worked more closely with the community and that was forward looking in technology,” said Willer.
Willer’s interests include traveling, gardening, antiques, and spending time with family.
Hoffmann can be contacted at the office for the next couple months. Stop by and meet Renee anytime!
