Tilson Promotes Kelly Brewer to Chief Operating Officer

Portland, ME (08/18/2020). Tilson, a national network development and information infrastructure professional services firm, announced the promotion of Kelly Brewer to Chief Operating Officer (COO). As COO, Brewer will lead Tilson’s ongoing operational growth and oversee more than 500 professionals who design, build, operate, and maintain the most advanced network infrastructure for telecom carrier, utility and government clients across the country. Brewer’s expanded responsibilities include oversight and strategic integration of Tilson’s high-performing Consulting Division. 

Previously, Brewer served as Executive Vice President of Telecommunications, where she led Tilson’s telecom units and oversaw the strategic planning and business development of Tilson’s largest division. Brewer joined the company in 2011 where she established and led Tilson’s self-performing tower construction and engineering divisions serving wireline, wireless and utility customers. Her leadership helped drive Tilson’s double- and triple-digit growth percentages, particularly in the areas of engineering and construction self-performance capability.

“Kelly is a trailblazer and major contributor to Tilson’s incredible growth. Since joining the team, Kelly has been instrumental in scaling up our wireless construction, engineering, and OSP divisions, putting Tilson among the top industry leaders,” said Josh Broder, Tilson CEO. “This promotion is a clear reflection of our commitment to building America’s information infrastructure which requires a proven leader with strategic vision, unlimited capacity and my complete confidence.”

Our mission to build America’s information infrastructure has never felt so critical and I look forward to supporting Tilson’s continued growth and success.”
