Communications tower owner Vertical Bridge said its leadership team has donated $1.1 million personally to benefit two industry foundations.
“The donations were made in support of the work that these non-profit organizations do to help veterans enter the telecommunications industry and to support the families of those injured on the job,” the company stated in a press release.
The announcement was made by CEO Alex Gellman and EVP of Operations Bernard Borghei.
Warriors4Wireless was formed “to bridge the gap between the demand for trained and deployable wireless technicians, and the thousands of qualified service men and women eager to transfer the skills they have learned in the military.”
The Tower Family Foundation provides financial assistance to family members of a severely injured, permanently disabled or deceased tower worker.
Vertical Bridge said that last year it donated $1.5 million to 149 causes chosen by its employees.
