LAS VEGAS – Smart City Networks, the nation’s leading provider of internet, Wi-Fi and other digital technologies for the convention industry, welcomes Terry Funk to the post of senior director of business development.
In his new position, Funk will lead the expansion of the company’s services to new customers who will benefit from Smart City’s data-and voice-management services for events, vendors and show managers. In his work to source and secure new business in the hospitality and convention industry, Funk is eager to demonstrate how Smart City’s designs, management and technology solutions can transform venues plagued by insufficient capacity and coverage.
“We have been on a winning streak since 2014, renewing or signing new contracts worth more than $400 million,” said Mark Haley, Smart City Networks president. “This substantial growth and increased market share has necessitated the hiring of a seasoned business development professional. Terry is one of the best in our industry and we welcome him to our team.”
Funk is actually rejoining the Smart City family. He is the founder and former president of Priority Networks, which provided wired and wireless Internet, networking services and telecommunications products to convention facilities across North America. Smart City acquired the company in 2006.
That entrepreneurial spirit will serve Funk well in his new position.
“Smart City has positioned itself to develop and leverage future technologies that will revolutionize the convention and hospitality industry,” Funk said. “I am thrilled to be back and am looking forward to introducing meeting planners and convention center managers to our expertise in implementing these dynamic platforms and services.
