HickoryTech shareholders approved a corporate name change at the company’s annual meeting today, ratifying Enventis Corporation as its new corporate name. This follows the company’s decision last fall to adopt Enventis as its primary service brand. The corporate name change is effective immediately and the company will begin trading its stock as Enventis Corporation under the new NASDAQ ticker symbol “ENVE” later this week.
“Today marks another important step in our company’s history and transformation as we become Enventis Corporation and soon begin trading our stock as Enventis,” said John Finke, president and chief executive officer of Enventis. “Aligning both our service brand and corporate name as Enventis reflects all the services and benefits we provide as a leading, progressive communications company serving customers throughout the upper Midwest.”
Enventis has transformed over its 116-year history adapting, evolving, innovating and embracing change through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions. In 2006, the company acquired Enventis, a key business-to-business acquisition, which more than doubled the reach of its fiber network. In 2009, the company acquired CP Telecom, bolstering its small and medium business services and adding an agent sales channel. Two years ago, Enventis acquired IdeaOne, a Fargo-based business and broadband provider, adding a robust metro-based fiber network to its long-haul network.
In addition to acquisition growth, the company expanded its fiber network in 2010 by adding long-haul routes to Fargo, N.D. and Sioux Falls, S.D. The Enventis Greater Minnesota Broadband Collaboration Project, which was completed last year, brought high-capacity fiber availability to northern Minnesota, adding nearly 500 route miles to the company’s fiber footprint. Enventis continues to invest and expand its fiber network with a focus on bringing fiber directly to business customers. This summer, Enventis will launch its cloud services, bringing more value to business customers through its managed and hosted services.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
