Waterloo Fiber is critical to the growth of the city. Not only will it be great economically to attract businesses to the area and provide funding to our community, it also brings out local talent. Waterloo Fiber is hyper focused on supporting local and it's truly an honor to be a part of the groundbreaking of a new company that has the potential to put Waterloo on a really strategic path of growth.

About Me

I have had the privilege to serve on another public service start up besides the Waterloo Fiber Utility.  In 2008 I was part of establishing the Iowa Electrical Licensing and Inspection Program. Very similar to the Waterloo Fiber, it was paving a plan for years to come for a government entity.  With both, this is a very involved process and knowing some of the issues with the previous start up has come in handy.  The best part about being part of this new utility is we know we are helping the people of Waterloo to have a better option to our everyday needs for communication.  It’s not just internet, its phone and television as well. I very much appreciate being part of the Team setting up Waterloo Fiber!

Outside Plant Engineer/Technician Supervisor

About Me

"My only reason for wanting to be a part of Waterloo Fiber is that 22 years ago I moved to the US and more specifically Waterloo, IA. I made it my home and have had many opportunities to move away but felt more at home here. My entire career I've worked in telecommunications and the last 15 years I spent at CFU. I believe I had something to offer Waterloo Fiber and my own community providing the same great service I had been providing the citizens of Cedar Falls for a very long time. It is something that Waterloo has been wanting and really needing for as many years as I had been in the US, and I believe that I have the experience to offer Waterloo Fiber. This is my community and I know what can be achieved at CFU and know that if Waterloo could have the same opportunity they would grow as a city and accomplish so much through additional business and growth supporting residents and providing the best in customer service. Everyone we hire at Waterloo Fiber can make this city a great place to call home or work."

Ian says his friends and family are his favorite things and loves to grill a lot of food during the summertime!
