Martin Renzoni - Chairman
In 1993, Martin Renzoni co-founded Transwave Communications Systems, Inc. and serves as Chairman of the company. He concentrates on major business opportunities and execution of the core direction of the company. He cultivates and maintains key business relationships with Consultants, Vendors, and Customers. Mr. Renzoni is active in managing day-to-day functions of the company with a focus on Network and System Sales, long term planning and finances. To assist Transwave’s growth, he leverages his 24 years of experience in Telecommunications by utilizing long-term relationships he has developed in the Wireless business sector.
Over the years, Mr. Renzoni has held several key Executive and Sr. Management positions in the Wireless Sector. Most recently, Mr. Renzoni was Chief Operating Officer at Broadband Highway, Inc. (BHI), a Woodland Hills, CA based Wireless ISP that provided a low-cost, high-capacity Internet solution to commercial buildings in Southern California. As COO, Mr. Renzoni coordinated Broadband Highway’s marketing, sales, and customer support functions. He also negotiated real estate opportunities for the company and directed all network design and operational functions of the company.
Prior to BHI, Mr. Renzoni was Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Apex Site Management, which was acquired by SpectraSite Communications. His responsibilities included marketing to wireless and fiber telecommunications carriers and service providers who targeted co-location access to Apex’s Real Estate portfolio on a national basis. His team established carrier relationships and developed customized programs to meet the specific needs of their regional or national deployment objectives. He was also responsible for identifying and developing new revenue opportunities for the company, then launching viable initiatives by creating new business units which complemented and diversified Apex’s service offering.
Before his position at Apex, Mr. Renzoni served as the Director of Sales for Tadiran Microwave Networks (formerly California Microwave and TeleSciences). He was responsible for managing the sales organization that provided microwave radio products and turnkey solutions to the public and private sector. Customers included Cellular, PCS, Telco’s, State and Local Governments, Utilities, Federal Government, the US Military and Defense Contractors. Mr. Renzoni also coordinated major project functions in system design, engineering, and program management.
The decision to invest in Transwave was forged by Mr. Renzoni’s first hand experience as he held minority positions in several wireless system integration companies that flourished after the divestiture of AT&T. These companies, CSC, Inc. and Comptek Telecommunications, provided EF&I services utilizing wireless and fiber technologies for its public and private users. Several of the networks that were deployed pioneered leading edge technology unique to the microwave and data radio industry.
