DTC Communications head Craig Gates left his position with the co-op last week to pursue a new opportunity in Montana. Steve Johnson has been named interim CEO until the DTC Board of Directors can choose a new CEO.
The new issue of "The DTC Connection" contains a message from Gates in which he addresses DTC members.
"I arrived in 2011 and have spent four great years here at DTC," Gates said. "We made many changes to the organization during my leadership here at DTC. The most important change has been developing and living up to our mission statement to be the best service provider that adds value to all of our customers' needs by exceeding their expectations."
Gates career began in 1984. He came to DTC after serving as CEO and VP of Project Mutual, a cooperative in Rupert, Idaho.
