Wireless infrastructure-as-a-service provider Strategic Venue Partners (SVP) recently announced it expanded its leadership team with three new executives to meet the demand of the company’s growth, as well as the increased demand for wireless connectivity and in-building infrastructure.
The company’s new hires include Andrew Chavez (Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development), Kevin Shea (Senior Vice President of Project Management and Construction) and Megan Wesley (Vice President of Marketing). With years of experience in client relationship management, project management and marketing, the new executives will play a crucial role in further expanding the business and bringing the SVP experience to more enterprises and venues across the U.S.
With more 25 years of leadership experience in the digital infrastructure industry, Chavez previously led the North American Sales & Marketing Team for Extenet, where he successfully delivered year-over-year growth while building a high-performing team that significantly increased the company’s valuation. He was also an executive advisor at Tupl and worked with Nokia, where he led the North American team responsible for signing the largest contract in the company’s history with T-Mobile. As senior vice president of sales and business development, Chavez is tasked with driving SVP’s overall growth strategy while bringing his customer-centric approach to bridge the needs of venues, enterprises and carrier partners alike.
Meanwhile, Shea will bring extensive experience in the RF, technical construction and operation management fields. He has held a variety of leadership and management roles, most recently as the director of in-building solutions for USA Groups. In that role, he designed, delivered and supported reliable wireless solutions for commercial carrier, public safety and private communications networks.
In his new role as senior vice president of project management and construction, Shea will oversee all aspects of SVP’s service delivery from solutions engineering to installation, testing, commissioning and management. With Shea’s combination of technical expertise, leadership experience, and deep-seated industry connections, SVP looks for him to be integral in transparently supporting the company’s enterprise, venue, carrier and other service provider partners.
With a unique combination of telecommunications marketing and commercial real estate experience, Wesley, as vice president of marketing, will play a key role in helping new and existing customers understand SVP’s value as a wireless infrastructure-as-a-service provider as well as a powerful partner in managing every aspect of in-building infrastructure deployment.
Wesley will be responsible for delivering SVP’s message to the broader market, helping carriers, venues and enterprises understand how SVP excels at delivering excellence, transparency, adaptability and thoughtfulness at every step of the way. Prior to joining SVP, Wesley was served vice president of account management and digital marketing at Jaymie Scotto & Associates, where she excelled at driving multi-touch marketing campaigns and thoughtful brand awareness strategies.
“We are thrilled to welcome Andrew, Kevin and Megan to our team,” Strategic Venue Partners CEO Justin Marron said in a statement. “Together, these three experts will help us further develop these critical areas within SVP and amplify our unique offering as we position ourselves for continued growth ahead. SVP is comprised of extremely talented individuals that possess the right relationships, expertise and finesse, which reinforce our position for long-term success. Having the best people on our team means that we can continue to deliver the best experience to our customers and partners,”
The three new executives will be joining the SVP team next week in New Orleans for Connect (X), May 8-10.
