Network Wireless Solutions, LLC (“NWS” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing solutions and logistics provider to carriers and telecommunications contractors, announced this week several advancements within its team, including the creation of two new executive positions intended to accelerate the Company’s growth and increase the scale of its operations.

Xavier Williams, NWS Chief Executive Officer stated, “continually optimizing NWS’ operations enables our efforts to serve customers in the Wireless and Broadband industries to the best of our abilities. We are proud of the successes we have had to date, and we look forward to even further growth led by this talented team.”

Bill Elkin will take on the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) from his former position as NWS’ Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In this new seat, Mr. Elkin is responsible for driving operational efficiency across the business, including exploring opportunities for increased scale and efficiency presented by its new partnerships with Gap Wireless and JF TECH, acquired earlier this year. Mr. Elkin brings more than 23 years of experience as a senior financial and operations executive in the domestic and international manufacturing, distribution, and logistics industries.

Sam Clark, NWS Vice President of Sales, will take on a newly created role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).

Adrian Alday has joined NWS as CFO from Vanguard Companies, where he served as CFO and before that served a similar role at InterFlex.
