Fiber Champion Heather Burnett Gold to Retire
Heather Burnett Gold, long-time president and CEO of the Fiber Broadband Association, will start her retirement process at the end of September.
After 30 years in the telecommunications industry and seven years steering the Fiber Broadband Association (formerly the Fiber to the Home Council Americas), Burnett Gold expects the organization to announce her replacement in time for 2018 Fiber Connect, to be held in Nashville from June 4-6.
During her tenure, Burnett Gold oversaw the industry's first gross domestic product study that linked fiber and economic growth, research into fiber and housing, the vital role of fiber in 5G, plus conferences and toolkits, the association said.
"Her commitment to the power of technology to change our communities is a true inspiration to all of us and she has, in my view, accelerated the connected future," said Scott Jackson, chairman of the organization's board.
