As GCN has evolved over the years, so too has our company leadership. We are thus pleased to announce that Kurt Walk has recently accepted the position of President of Global Communication Networks, Inc. Kurt has been with GCN for the past 3 1/2 years, most recently as Executive Vice President of Business Development. With a strong background in IT operations, business continuity, and project management, Kurt brings both technical expertise and forward-thinking vision to his new role.
“GCN has grown tremendously in recent years. Because of that growth, we’ve seen the need for additional executive leadership,” says Chris Palermo, who will continue serving in his role as GCN’s CEO. “Kurt Walk is a 30-year IT veteran whose experience managing global networks and building strong business relationships makes him a perfect fit for the role of GCN President. He’s helping us build our talent, expand our capabilities, and keep us connected to the core values that have always been a part of GCN’s mission.”
“When I first met Chris Palermo 15 years ago, I was a buyer,” adds Walk. “In that experience, I found that the GCN model not only met but also exceeded my expectations. I’m looking to bring that same value proposition to GCN customers in this new role. We want to better serve our current and future customers. We want GCN’s capabilities as a Connectivity Integrator to resonate with businesses. I’m honored to accept this position as GCN President and to serve the company as it continues to grow.”
Please join us in welcoming Kurt to this new position.
