GCI Senior Vice President & General Counsel Tina Pidgeon has been named to the 2014 class of “Women to Watch” by the publication Multichannel News, which annually recognizes 12 women from across the media and telecommunications industry “whose ongoing contributions are emblematic of the vital roles they will continue to play in the industry’s future.”
Pidgeon was nominated for her contributions to several innovative GCI initiatives, including the TERRA network, which has brought broadband service to some of Western Alaska’s most remote communities, and the creation of the Alaska Wireless Network, which allows GCI to compete more effectively against Outside wireless providers.
She will join the 2014 class at an awards event in New York on March 25.
