MEDINA — The Medina County Port Authority has hired David Corrado as chief executive officer of the Medina County Fiber Network.
Corrado has 30 years of experience in technology solutions and most recently worked to establish the first telemedicine broadband network in Ohio.
“Hiring an expert to oversee the operations of the Medina County Fiber Network was a part of the overall plan for the network from the beginning,” said Bethany Dentler, executive director of the Medina County Economic Development Corp. and administrator of the Port Authority.
A graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College, Corrado previously worked for OneCommunity, Process Management Consultants and LOGOS Communications.
“Medina County businesses are very fortunate to have David at the helm,” Dentler said. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in managing fiber projects that is well above industry standards.”
The Medina County Fiber Network officially opened for business last year. The 151-mile, 144-strand fiber-optic loop provides high-bandwith connections for businesses, local governments, schools and libraries, and connects to fiber-optic lines in Cuyahoga and Summit counties.
Corrado has spent his career working as a consultant to companies to help design automated workflow management systems.
“It’s an honor to be part of Medina’s growing community and to help with the development of this ground-breaking technology,” Corrado stated. “Thanks to the economic recovery, Medina County commerce continues to grow at a rapid pace. The capabilities and bandwidth offered by the Medina County Fiber Network provide a tool to support and accelerate business growth and expansion.”
