Noteworthy Women in Wireless Infrastructure – 2023

AmyJo Samuel

Vice President, Shared Services – US Tower Operations
American Tower

“One of my most memorable achievements in my career within the wireless industry was implementing a technology platform called On Air Access in 2012. By creating an online portal to be able to access and see real-time information on the status of projects, we enabled a foundational platform focused on the customer need for faster network deployment.

It was personally rewarding because it was a culmination of my wireless experience at the time – from my operations experience in processing leases to installations, front end account  management experience, and my experience in IT enabling back-end technology and data to support business needs. Implementing OAA created a widely utilized tool for our customers and a blueprint for the way the tower industry operates today. Since then we have been able to grow our platforms due to the feedback and engagement of many leaders and creative talent throughout the industry. 

I feel fortunate to work in the telecom industry in such an innovative phase of growth and technology advancement. I am excited to see how we continue to shape and transform for 5G and beyond.”
