Peak Internet is proud to welcome Kathryn Perry as the newest addition to their staff.
Kathryn Perry will take over the duties as the company’s chief executive officer (CEO). Jayson Baker, the founder of Peak Internet, is moving to the position of president.
Perry joins Peak Internet with 10 years’ experience as the CEO at CHOICES, a local Teller County nonprofit. Before that, she was in the banking industry with Citibank, the Resolution Trust Corporation, and formerly served as president of the largest charter school in Colorado.
“As I conclude my tenure at CHOICES, I am excited to see the expanded impact that new leadership will bring. I am honored to join the Peak Internet team and take on this new challenge,” says Perry.
“Jayson (Baker) has built Peak from the beginning, with a vision to serve the Pikes Peak region with the highest speed internet. With this transition, Jayson will be free to focus on strategic vision for the rapidly growing company, while I will strengthen internal support systems to facilitate that growth. I look forward to a partnership that will take Peak to new levels of service and superior technology for our community.”
Baker adds, “Kathryn is a proven leader and joins our team at an exciting time in our company’s development. As CEO, she will set and lead the business objectives of our company, allowing me to focus on technology and our vision for the future. Her instincts, insights, collaborative style, and ability to execute will strengthen our already strong leadership team.”
