Drew Patterson Promoted to Director of Network Towers
Network Building + Consulting is pleased to announce that Drew Patterson has been promoted to Director of Network Towers, LLC, an NB+C company, and the tower development initiative that is a key part of the company’s long-term strategy.
Drew will oversee operations and asset management for the program throughout NB+C’s multiple geographic markets. In this role, Drew is responsible for new tower opportunity pipeline creation, leasing, entitlement approvals and construction. In addition, and to accomplish the program’s aggressive goals, Drew will manage both a central dedicated tower development team and select shared resources from NB+C services projects for both operational and wireless service provider sales objectives.
Drew began his tenure with NB+C in 2012 as a Land Use Specialist in the South region. Over the past eleven years, he has successfully become one of the company’s leading subject matter experts on the complex zoning associated with macro site development and especially new telecommunication towers. This success has led to promotions to Project Manager and Program Manager over large services accounts for wireless service providers and tower companies. In these roles, Drew has honed his management talent and successfully mentored several new leaders at NB+C
“The type of work associated with building and owning new towers is unique within the wireless industry,” said Greg Tully, EVP of Strategic Programs. “Drew has demonstrated throughout his career at NB+C that he has the vision, discipline and patience to manage a first-class asset portfolio as well as the skill set to execute on the day-to-day work needed to build it.”
Drew’s career prior to NB+C was that of a professional land-use planner. Educated at East Carolina University, and holding municipal positions in both Carolina Beach, NC and Hanover County, VA, Drew learned the business of development on the front lines of government oversight.
