Mr. Patrick Lombardi also brings extensive experience to the table.  It includes global communications, which will be essential as the company looks to expand its presence around the world. Mr. Lombardi's experience includes owning PJL Associates, Inc., a successful consultancy company providing strategic insights to global communication service providers. Additionally Mr. Lombardi has served on the Board of Directors of Jones Intercable Inc., Bell Cablemedia plc and as Chairman of the Audit Committee of Raindance Communications, Inc.
