Everstream Names Rich Dugger to Lead Health Care Vertical
CLEVELAND – November 1, 2018 – Everstream, a super-regional network service provider bringing fiber-based Ethernet, internet and data center solutions to businesses throughout the Midwest, has named Sales Director Rich Dugger to lead the company’s health care vertical.
An industry veteran, Dugger has been with Everstream for 13 years and has two decades of experience in telecom, where he has largely specialized in health care. In this new role, Dugger will bring his years of expertise to health care providers across Everstream’s five-state footprint, including Ohio and Michigan as well as any future markets.
“High-speed fiber networks and accessible health care are both critical to our infrastructure,” said Bill Major, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Everstream. “Rich is an integral member of the Everstream Sales Team and has been a critical asset for our health care customers. He is well-versed in the needs of both the fiber and health care industries and adept at adjusting to a variety of expectations.”
Throughout his tenure at Everstream, Dugger has been a key contributor. He has consistently served as the facilitator for myriad Northeast Ohio organizations in need of solutions to their telecom challenges. Notably, he has helped deliver customized fiber solutions to a range of the area’s health care providers, including specialty and community hospitals as well as regional and national health care systems.
Prior to joining Everstream, Dugger spent several years at AT&T, where he served in increasingly complex sales roles and first gained exposure to the health care market.
“Because there are so many intricacies within the health care market, it’s important to realize that providers cannot have cookie-cutter solutions — and I understand that,” said Dugger. “Everstream’s corporate approach is rooted in delivering customized network solutions for all of our customers. I’m looking forward to combining Everstream’s philosophy with my specific industry and technical expertise to provide our current and future health care customers with the experiences they deserve.”
