Milestone Towers Appoints Oswaldo Reyes-Chica as Executive Vice President-Chief Integration Officer.

In his new role, he will lead the development of Milestone’s overall business strategy. He will also be responsible for integrating and coordinating the company’s operations, technology systems and team members to ensure everything, and everyone, works together to deliver optimal results.

Ozzie comes to Milestone from ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricant Company, where he advised leadership teams, guided cross-functional decision making and led the company’s digital transformation efforts for its North America and Latin America lubricants business. Prior to ExxonMobil, he was an executive at Accenture Federal Services’ office in the Washington, D.C. area. While there, he helped his clients solve a wide range of complex problems, from implementing sophisticated information technology to integrating their essential functions into unified ecosystems.

“Ozzie is a results-driven leader with more than 20 years of experience in management and corporate strategic planning,” said Len Forkas, Milestone’s president and founder. “He has an innate ability to see the big picture, manage diverse teams and resolve challenges effectively, making him an ideal choice to serve as Milestone’s EVP.”

Outside of work, Ozzie serves on the board of directors for Hopecam, a nonprofit that Forkas founded in 2003 to help children with cancer overcome social isolation through virtual connections with their schools. He holds a Bachelor of Science in International Business and Finance from Old Dominion University and a Master of Business Administration in Project Management and Information Technology from American University.

Our presence along the East Coast recently grew stronger! We’ve partnered with Sarasota, Florida-based Lakewood Ranch, one of the fastest-growing master-planned communities in the United States, as their selected tower developer. “We really shine when it comes to developing long-term, results-oriented relationships with real estate owners,” says our founder and president Len Forkas. “The owners at Lakewood Ranch trust us to execute an effective strategy to improve wireless coverage in their community.”

Spanning 48 sq. miles, Milestone will lead all of the property’s wireless infrastructure and offer new opportunities for carriers. Verizon has already agreed to be the primary tenant on multiple projects that will further help us bridge the wireless gap in Sarasota as they experience rapid residential growth.

Our team worked to obtain consent from the Warrenton, Virginia Town Council, and The Fauquier County Public Schools to construct and install a 115-foot monopole telecommunications tower that will drastically improve internet speed for the community surrounding FHS and Waterloo. Installed at the corner of the Fauquier High School (FHS) baseball field, the tower seamlessly blends in with the existing light poles. To further benefit the community, Fauquier County Public Schools will receive 40% of all gross revenues generated from carriers locating on the tower. Both Verizon and T-Mobile will expand service.

Community safety is always our #1 priority. Since 2012, we’ve partnered with Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) to build and install 9 towers that increase both connectivity and public safety in rural areas marked by poor wireless service. In April, we completed a safe, space-appropriate tower at a site in Shady Side, Maryland and took great care to help alleviate the concerns of parents, residents and the school board. We routinely adhere to safety guidelines that far exceed industry standards and perform annual tests to ensure compliance with Federal Communications Commission guidelines. Verizon will expand service and provide enhanced public safety connectivity when the tower goes on air in July.

Tower Industry Taking a Stand to Help Prevent Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking is not something that is typically associated with the telecommunications industry, but recently many industry leaders have decided to take steps to help bring an end to it in the United States. Many of these industry leaders are aiming for the goal of educating telecommunications professionals on how to spot the signs of human trafficking, and the steps towards notifying and reporting the signs.

Human trafficking is not a common subject to those in the telecommunications field. Some industry leaders have found, however, that tower workers are uniquely qualified to help make a positive impact on a global injustice. Recently, Kenny Blakeslee, President and CEO of Apex Site Solutions and Jim T...
