Jeff Wood has over 25 years of telecom experience, leading the industry through significant change and opportunity. While at Frontier Communications & Global Crossing, Jeff focused on enterprise businesses with telecom spending budgets over $3M annually. Jeff was highly successful in building a loyal portfolio of clients across the country and many of his clients then are still his clients today.
Some have described Jeff as a visionary for leading a “one of a kind” symposium of cable companies that led to some of the first NNIs (Network to Network Interface) between multiple cable companies across the country. While at Northern Lights Telecom, Jeff introduced the market to fiber based Ethernet WAN services with a special focus on designing and installing one of a kind redundant networks for carriers and enterprise businesses.
As CEO/President at APX Net, Jeff has demonstrated his leadership and extensive knowledge of the industry by building one of the fastest growing service providers in the industry. Under Jeff’s direction, APX Net was an early partner with the cable companies and LECs, combining the benefits of their networks while removing the challenges that go along with them. APX Net has built some of the most advanced fiber optic networks nationwide and continues to give the personal service that builds client loyalty.
Jeff resides in Southern Maine with his wife and son and enjoys skiing the beautiful mountains in winter to spending his summers exploring the many lakes in New Hampshire and Maine.
