Technology Media Telecom (TMT) News Announces 2016 Executive Telecommunications Awards Winners, Recognizing the Exceptional Services Provided by Individuals Working ‘Behind the Scenes’ within Various Industry Sectors

CONCORD, CAMarch 2, 2017 LightRiver Technologies, Inc., a leader in Factory Built Network® design and commissioning, announces today that Dean L. Campbell, Chief Technology Officer for LightRiver, has been awarded Best CTO in Transport Solutions 2016 & Most Innovative CTO in Telecommunication Networking by Technology Media Telecom (TMT) News. Mr. Campbell was reviewed among executives across a variety of companies in the telecom and technology sector, and was nominated by the TMT News subscriber base of over 82,000.

“A business is only as good as its staff, and whilst the entire workforce is always responsible for a firm’s success, ultimately it is the responsibility of the executives and board members to make the decisions which decide the company’s fate,” states Jazmin Collins, TMT Awards Coordinator. “Working with great industry leaders from across the technology, telecoms and media industries, such as LightRiver’s Dean Campbell, has been a true pleasure, and I would like to wish every one of them the very best of fortunes going forward.”

The TMT 2016 Executive Awards recognize the exceptional services that are provided by individuals who work behind the scenes within the varied sectors of the industry throughout the year. TMT award winners are chosen by TMT’s in-house judging panel of ten individuals, who consider multiple factors such as a company’s staff, previous accolades, customer and client reviews, and products and services offered. TMT’s award judging panel undertakes a series of investigative tasks to build case files on award nominees, and ensures the award nomination process is just and fair.

“I thank TMT News for its acknowledgement of LightRiver Technologies and my role here as CTO,” comments Mr. Campbell. “Throughout my career, my focus on technology as an enabler has always been paired with the recognition that the human side of the equation is equally important. I’ve developed the ability to focus on key success factors – the few critical items important to the customer, and this perspective has been instrumental to developing my and my team’s steadfast customer focus, and ability to earn and live the “trusted advisor” role with our clientele. This award is a great testament to the hard work and dedication of all of us here at LightRiver.”
