Chicago-Based Internet Service Provider, Everywhere Wireless, has chosen the former Co-Founder of Hostway to lead its operations
CHICAGO, IL, September 28, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Everywhere Wireless, the premier provider of Gigabit+ Internet service to multi-family communities and businesses in Chicagoland, announces the appointment of Arnold Choi as the company’s first Chief Operating Officer. As COO, Choi will lead the operations of the engineering, project management, and customer service teams in support of the company’s Gigabit+ Internet network expansion as Everywhere Wireless continues to take market share from large telecom competitors such as AT&T and Comcast. An expert in both business and technical operations, Arnie brings over 20 years of operational experience to the Everywhere Wireless team.
“Arnie was just what the company needed to strengthen and lead our operations team into the next phase of our business,” said Keegan Bonebrake, EVP of Strategy and Real Estate, “He brings a wealth of entrepreneurial experiences in scaling and operating high-growth companies like ours. We are elated to welcome him as a leader of the Everywhere Wireless Family – for years to come.”
Choi previously served as the Co-Founder and SVP of Operations at Hostway Corporation, a leading provider of hosted information technology solutions to over 500,000 small and medium-size businesses and enterprise customers, including Coca-Cola Co., Tribune Co., Hershey Co., Campbell Soup Co. and Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. Bootstrapped from the start, Choi and his two business partners grew Hostway to more than 700 employees and eventually exited the business in 2013 for more than $200 million. Hostway delivered custom managed hosting solutions as a service on dedicated servers. More recently, after Choi left, Hostway merged with Hosting, creating a whole new company called Ntirety. The combined organization now has 14 world-class data centers in five countries across three continents.
“The Everywhere Wireless team is innovative and focused. It has led them to become the leader in delivering Gigabit+ speeds to residential and commercial properties in the Chicago area,” said Choi. “I am excited and proud to join the team to help scale the operations and help continue the expansion of the company.”
Everywhere Wireless is the largest independent Internet Service Provider delivering Gigabit+ speeds to residential and commercial properties. Clients include Cisco, Nike, Google, The Shedd Aquarium and the Art Institute of Chicago, along with nearly all leading commercial and residential property developers, managers and condo associations throughout the greater Chicago area. Thoughtfully integrated into the daily lives of the people of Chicago, Everywhere Wireless has partnered with the City to provide free Wi-Fi at many of Chicago’s public parks and beaches. The company also regularly contributes to community-focused organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association’s Greater Illinois Chapter, the ReVive Center for Housing and Healing and Literacy Works.
