Hudson Fiber Network (HFN), a US-based transport, IP and network provider specializing in network solutions for the financial and enterprise communities, announced that it appointed Robert Hagan as the company’s chief financial officer.
Hagan previously served as CFO and senior vice president of finance of KMC Telecom, one of the country’s largest, privately held competitive local exchange carriers prior to the acquisition of its operations by Centurylink and Telcove. During his tenure with the company, KMC grew
from an early stage to boast $575 million in revenue and over 1,500 employees.
Prior to joining HFN, he served as CFO of H2M Beverages, a beverage and consumer products packaging-technology company. Hagan began his career as an audit manager at Ernst & Young where he serviced high-growth clients in the aviation, engineering and construction sectors. He holds degrees in business management and accounting from Fairleigh Dickinson University and is a Certified Public Accountant.
“We’re delighted to welcome Bob on board,” said Brett Diamond, CEO of HFN. “Bob’s experience as a senior financial executive at high-growth, public and private companies in the telecom, corporate aviation and consumer sectors is instrumental at a time where our company is experiencing spectacular growth.”
“HFN is growing at an accelerated rate, and we are building upon an exceptional management team that understands the challenges and long-term possibilities our industry holds,” said Keith Muller, COO of HFN. “We look forward to the insight and expertise Bob lends to our long-term expansion strategy, capital investment decisions and client service commitments.”
Earlier this year, HFN announced the closing of its acquisition by Tiger Infrastructure Partners, an independent private equity firm focused on investments in middle-market infrastructure assets and businesses in North America and Europe.
