FBA's Women in Fiber Announces November Spotlight Winner

November 19, 2020

Fiber Broadband Association’s Women in Fiber (WIF) Group is excited to announce this month’s Woman in Fiber Spotlight winner: Megan O’Brien from Preformed Line Products! The Spotlight series is a new monthly initiative meant to highlight different roles and careers for women in fiber, telecom, tech, and construction.

Megan O’Brien is an Applications Engineer at Preformed Line Products. Colleague Matthew Becker from Preformed Line Products had this to say about Megan: “Traditionally, telecommunications and fiber related jobs were mostly driven by men. Even more so, technical jobs were even skewed more heavily towards men. Megan and other women are bucking this trend as she handles technical related issues and hands-on expertise of fiber related products. It can be a daunting task to enter a room of 25-50 fiber splicers (most of them men), and deliver an application of product in front of them to showcase how the product functions and tips and tricks associated with said product. I have seen it first hand in the field that Megan can hold her own in the industry as she has the patience, technical expertise and personality to handle any situation that arises.”

To read more about Megan, check out the Woman in Fiber Spotlight on our Women in Fiber LinkedIn page or the Fiber Broadband Association website. Congratulations, Megan!
