Lumos Networks appoints Jeffrey Miller

Service provider Lumos Networks has appointed Jeffrey Miller as SVP of business development, which is effective immediately.

Lumos selected Miller to utilise his experience in the design and deployment of a national core fibre network.

Miller is a telecoms veteran, having gained 20 years’ experience working for Adelphia Communications and TelCove.

Prior to TelCove’s acquisition by Level 3 Communications in 2006, Miller was involved in the operator’s business strategy and deploying its national fibre network. He has also spent seven years as an accountant at Ernst & Young.

Lumos Networks CEO, Timothy Blitz, said: “Miller brings exactly the type of background that we need to accelerate Lumos’ transition into a data centric fibre-based company.

“He brings extensive financial analysis and operational experience to the table, including management of capital efficiency,” he added.

Blitz also said Miller is expected to play a “major role” in the company’s fibre network strategies in Richmond, Virginia and western Pennsylvania.
