When Insurance Office of America (IOA) realized the distinct client benefits that could be offered by having a telecommunications safety and compliance director on board to assist in their ever-growing telecom sector, they had a choice of many candidates, but one stood out with credentials that would make most safety professionals blush with envy – Stephanie Brewer – an individual whose dedication to wireless industry safety is well-known throughout the nation.
“We’re excited to have Stephanie join the team. With her extensive background and enthusiasm for her clients, she is a great fit,” said IOA Regional President and USA Telecom CEO Bruce Eades. “We’re looking forward to Stephanie applying her in-depth knowledge of client contract compliance, subcontractor management, risk management, and safety compliance to our telecom client relationships throughout the country.”
Brewer brings with her over 14 years of experience with a large telecommunications tower construction company having worked in many areas of the organization, specifically risk and compliance.
Eades said she will be available to assist IOA telecommunications clients as well as USA Telecom Insurance Services clientele in risk and safety, compliance coaching, training, and operational efficiencies.
During a recent Telecommunications Industry Registered Apprenticeship Program (TIRAP) meeting, Brewer was reelected to chair the organization’s advisory board.
She is also on the board of governors of the National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA). She previously served on the NWSA Task Force and currently is a member of the NWSA Written Exam Management Committee, as well as a member of the ANSI/ASSP A10.48 standard editing committee.
Brewer is actively involved in initiatives to improve overall industry safety as she serves on several NATE: The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association (NATE) committees, including the Women of NATE (WON), Member Services, and Safety Equipment Manufacturers. She is the NATE Wireless Industry Network (WIN) state liaison for Illinois.
