The California Wireless Association (Calwa) has announced the recipients of the 2014 Golden State Wireless Awards. The awards acknowledge individuals, companies, and organizations for their efforts and commitment to the wireless industry for the state of California.
Receiving the Golden Sponsor Awards were Talley and Crown Castle. Recipients of the Golden State Wireless Award were Joint Venture Silicon Valley and Association of California Cities and Counties – Orange County.
The association’s Member of the Year award went to Patti Ringo, Director of Davey Resource Group.
Lifetime Achievement Awards were received by Lisa White, EVP & Chief Marketing Officer, Wes-tec Inc.; and Julian Quattlebaum, Partner, Channel Law Group, LLP.
“Calwa is what it is today in large measure because of the contributions from Patti, Lisa and Julian,” said Robert Jystad, Calwa President.
“Obviously as well, all our sponsors provide us with the resources needed to plan big and pursue successful events and outcomes in so many key areas, but Talley and Crown Castle stand out for their consistent and long term commitment to the effort. We are especially pleased with our sister associations in California, ACCOC and Joint Venture Silicon Valley, who, on their own initiative, helped elevate the importance of wireless infrastructure when few thought it mattered.”
Kari Willis, the Executive Director of Calwa, shares Robert’s sentiments stating, “These recipients have donated their time and support to furthering the mission of Calwa and we are grateful for their commitment.”
