Fiber Broadband Association’s Women in Fiber (WIF) Group is excited to announce their first Woman in Fiber Spotlight winner: Kimberly Pitcher from Smithville Communications! The Spotlight series is a new monthly initiative meant to highlight different roles and careers for women in fiber, telecom, tech, and construction.
Kimberly Pitcher is a Plant Engineering Manager from Smithville Communications in Ellettsville, Indiana. Jason Dauby, Chief Technology Officer at Smithville, had this to say about Kimberly: “Kim is a role model, the only female in plant engineering where she brilliantly manages a team of men. She demonstrates calm efficiency, managing diverse issues as they arise, coordinating with the network engineering, construction, and I&R departments. She represents Smithville as an expert in her field, sits on panels and is always aware of what’s coming that will impact the industry.”
