Ontivity, a leading national provider of wireless infrastructure services, has reappointed Eric Chase as Chief Executive Officer. The company said in a statement that the leadership move will fuel the company’s culture of growth.

In September, Ontivity acquired Infinity Construction Solutions of Buford, Georgia. The company was integrated into Ontivity member company CMS Wireless.

Chase takes over the reins from Joe Cecin, appointed in March of 2022 when Chase became the company’s Executive Chairman.

Founder Chase is a highly respected leader who brings a wealth of industry experience and an entrepreneurial mindset that will continue to propel Ontivity into the future, the announcement stated.

The company also announced the promotion of Ian Stringfellow to Chief Operating Officer, previously held by Dale Ponder. In his new role, Stringfellow will lead the organization’s business operations.

With over 26 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, most of which spent leading Ontivity member company ET Tower, Stringfellow is well-equipped to take on this crucial role, Chase said.

Stringfellow had been Ontivity’s Vice President of Operations.

“We are thrilled to promote Ian to COO. Ian represents our core values and Ontivity’s dedication to employee safety, the quality of the services we provide, and our relentless diligence in customer satisfaction. He is close to the business and has spent the past ten years helping us build the Ontivity vision. I could not think of a better person to run our operations,” Chase said.

“I am looking forward to continuing to drive operational excellence for Ontivity with strategic enhancements, optimizing processes, fostering partnerships, and ensuring that Ontivity remains at the forefront of the industry,” said Stringfellow.

Based in New Braunfels, Texas, Ontivity provides wireless and wireline infrastructure services to the telecommunications industry. The company offers technology upgrades, structural engineering, installation services, repairs, and maintenance for macro towers, DAS systems, fiber networks, small cells, utility towers, and power generators. Ontivity primarily services telecommunication carriers, tower owners, and utilities across the Southern, Southeastern, Central, and Pacific Northwest regions of the United States.
