Chris Stark evangelizes wireless as a vital part of human life, now and in the future. He is Chairman and founder of the CBRS Alliance and calls wireless telecom the “fourth utility”— a resource as valuable as water, as power and heating and cooling. That said, his compassion for transforming our nation’s communities through wireless connectivity and emerging technologies is immense.
As Advisory Board member, Chris Stark offers Teltech wisdom and experience as the company grows and evolves. As the Chairman of the CBRS Alliance, Chris oversaw the revolutionary initial commercial deployment launch of OnGo® shared spectrum technology as well as its vast device ecosystem designed to create innovative wireless opportunities for enterprise, industrial and consumer users. Before that, Chris was Chief Business Development Officer for Nokia Networks in North America where he was responsible for identifying and driving new business opportunities in the region.
Chris has served on the board for several standards and advocacy groups, notably ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions). Prior to joining Nokia in May 2010, Chris previously held CEO and President executive positions at Turin Networks, Luminous Networks and Alcatel.
