The need to achieve communications interoperability has haunted public agencies for years. The terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001 highlighted the need to improve the ability for public agencies from different jurisdictions to communicate with one another. Now today, Verizon has initiated an outreach to other companies, carriers, device makers, etc. to come together to jointly work on the issue of communications interoperability.

In this position he is responsible for its Federal -- both Department of Defense and civilian agencies -- state, local, education and public safety customers.
