A superregional fiber-based network service provider committed to growing jobs and investing in the region's economy is opening a Michigan office in Lansing's historic Knapp's Centre at 300 W. Washington Square.
will occupy more than 6,000-square feet of space on the center's first floor and expects to move staff into the new office in early January. After acquiring GLC/Comlink in June, the Cleveland-based company added 12 employees to its Michigan staff, with expectations to grow from 42 to 50 team members by 2017.
"The new office in downtown Lansing is a better fit with the company's culture. It has an open floor plan to facilitate communication among team members," says Brett Lindsey, president and chief executive officer of Everstream. "We're a transparent company. We share an immense amount of information with our team members on a regular basis to make certain that everybody is up to speed with what's going on in the organization."
A key for Everstream, Lindsey says, is expanding contiguous markets while retaining the levels of service customers expect. The expanded service area will enable the company to provide enterprise businesses, carriers, partners and wireless carriers with connectivity from Cleveland through Detroit, Lansing and Grand Rapids, over to Milwaukee, down to Chicago, South Bend, and Columbus, before ending back in Cleveland.
Executive Vice President and General Manager Pat O'Leary will lead the Michigan team.
"This is an amazing time for Everstream," says O'Leary. "The business is committed to growing. We continue to attract some of the best talent available, including young talent who want to learn the industry and grow with us."
Founded in 2014, Everstream brings fiber-based Ethernet, internet and data center solutions to businesses throughout the Midwest. With more than 9,500 miles of fiber across five states and comprehensive data center connectivity at 10 gigabit speed, the superregional network service provider allows businesses to operate a converged IP network capable of delivering robust voice, video and data services at speeds from 10mbps to 10gbps.
