Western CLEC and fiber operator Integra Telecom has a new face in charge. Kevin O'Hara has been named executive chairman, taking over the CEO duties from Tom Casey who has left to become CEO of Tronox. O'Hara has been on Integra's board for two years and its chairman for six months.
Prior to that of course, O'Hara was President and COO of Level 3 Communications (NYSE:LVLT, news, filings) for a decade. Integra's recent increased investment in its fiber footprint already has his fingerprints on it, so I doubt we are looking at a shift in the company's strategy.
