Posted: March 23, 2021

Ritter Communications recently introduced Jeff Chapman as its new vice president and general manager of the company’s fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) business sector.

Chapman will manage the strategic plans and initiatives for fiber-to-the-home infrastructure and services in new markets.

Alan Morse, Ritter Communications CEO, said Chapman is a much-needed leader in a rapidly growing market.

“After a nationwide search, I am pleased to welcome Jeff to our team,” Morse said. “His fiber-to-the-home knowledge paired with his years of management experience provides superb leadership for our FTTH team.”

Chapman, a native Arkansan, most recently served as executive vice president of operations for NorthState Communications in High Point, North Carolina, and he has extensive experience managing multimillion-dollar fiber deployment projects. Chapman’s industry experience also includes roles as CEO of Bridgepoint Communications in Dallas, executive vice president of engineering and construction for FiberLight in Atlanta, and management experience in sales, network engineering, operations, and support at PEG Bandwidth, Covad, New Edge Networks, and more. Chapman has a business administration degree from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri.

“High-quality, reliable, and affordable broadband internet services are more crucial than ever,” Morse said. “These connections have become just as essential as water and electricity in businesses and homes. Chapman’s expertise ensures Ritter Communications offers the most advanced fiber residential services to underserved communities while continuing to provide our exceptional customer service experience.”

Ritter Communications is based out of Jonesboro Arkansas, but they also operate in West Tennessee.
