Santel Communications announces the appointment of Randy Northrup.  Randy notes, “I’m excited to be back home working as the Sales and Marketing Manager at Santel.  My first sales and marketing experience off the family farm was during a summer while attending SDSU, I traveled to Florida selling educational books door-to-door.   I called it “The School of Hard Knocks”, a tough learning curve, yet I met some of the most amazing people and in the end, I had a profitable, memorable summer.”

Randy’s most recent experience has been successfully starting, growing, and managing motorcycle and auto racing brands.   These highly competitive industries have provided Randy with the experiences and processes that are a good fit for Santel.  In the motorsports business, he worked with both small business owners and large corporations, plus consumers in all walks in life, all with a goal to deliver our patrons the right products at a competitive price.

“Randy brings a vast array of experience and skill to best serve our patrons and customers”, said Ryan Thompson, General Manager of Santel Communications.  “Our cooperative mission is to connect our customers to the world.  In turn, Randy will help us bring the world closer to our customers.    We welcome Randy back and look forward to adding some ‘horsepower’ to our offerings and near-term network improvement investments.”
