Fractional CMO Rescues a

Sinking Telecom Company

Telecom Industry


A regional telecom service provider experienced five consecutive years of declining revenues in existing markets. Growth was being generated by expanding into new geographical markets. Unfortunately developing a new market was extremely costly. Infrastructure, equipment, personnel and other resources are needed for each new geographic market.

The telecom service provider began by offering residential phone service, which made up most of their customer base. The remainder was primarily small businesses with five or less phone lines, and specific vertical markets that required ISDN phone service. Efforts to gain market share in the Mid-Size Business market were not very fruitful.
