John Stanford joined SynchroNet Incorporated in 2000. Over the past 15 years, John has held numerous positions of increasing responsibility while working toward his current executive leadership role. John began his employment as a Field Technician and was then promoted to Installation Team Leader the following year.
These combined roles afforded John ground-level experience directing large scale network build outs for customers across the country.
In 2002 John was fast-tracked to Project Engineer followed by a promotion to Director of Engineering in 2005. In these customer-facing, consultative positions, he developed network designs, facilitated project deployments, managed field operations, directed multiple installation teams, and oversaw project delivery and customer relationships.

Under his leadership, SynchroNet’s operational capacity grew; its scope-of-work capabilities expanded; and quality assurance measures were formalized. John’s broad experience, demonstrated leadership qualities, and organizational success led to his current appointment as President of SynchroNet Incorporated in 2011. John’s goals as President are many; however, he is particularly focused on the continual improvement of the customer experience. In addition to direct customer-affecting concerns, John has prioritized the personal and professional development of SynchroNet’s employees as an end unto itself and as a means to strengthen customer relationships, family, and community.
