Schurz Communications says its board of directors has elected John Reardon to serve as the telecom’s next president and chief executive, starting early next year.

Reardon succeeds Todd Schurz, who has served in the CEO role for 15 years. His previous role was with the law firm of Kutak Rock, where he worked as an attorney for more than a year. He has served as an independent director of Schurz since 2020.

In a social media post, Schurz said he was “very excited that John Reardon will be our company’s next president and CEO.”

Schurz is a family-owned provider of residential and business telecommunications services. The company operates six consumer broadband services, including Burlington Telecom (Vermont), Hiawatha Broadband (Minnesota), Orbitel Communications (Arizona) and Antietam Broadband (Maryland). Schurz also provides cloud managed services through its Otava subsidiary.
