Our People in Action – Head of TSQ



Jonathan Meyer, Sr. Director of our Training, Safety & Quality teams

Get to know Jonathan Meyer, Sr. Director of our Training, Safety & Quality team at Network Connex. He shares how he evolved into this role championing ongoing training and safe work practices for all Network Connex divisions and teams.

How long have you been with Network Connex?

I started with VERTICOM (now the Deployment South division at Network Connex) in 2017 as the Director of Training, Safety, and Quality and was promoted to Sr. Director of Training, Safety & Quality supporting all of Network Connex around 2021.

Tell us about your career path and what led you to your current role?

I started off in the telecom industry roughly 20 years ago as a technician installing two-way radios in utility vehicles, police cars, fire trucks and ambulances. I then started to work on two-way radio towers and did that for two to three years until I was introduced to a mutual friend who worked at a telecom company supporting T-Mobile. I’ve worked on many of the major carriers’ networks, installing new sites and upgrades for T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Clear Wire and many others.

I worked for a smaller company many years ago where I wore multiple hats including responsibility for bidding jobs, building jobs, and training crew members. Around 2014 I started with an organization where my sole responsibilities were training, safety, and quality and I have been doing it ever since.

What does a typical day at work look like for you?

Every day is a bit different, but I would say a typical day for me would involve:

  • Collaborating with different teams on current / upcoming projects.
  • Reviewing recent events across the organization and the industry to determine if additional training and or corrective actions are needed.
  • Creating / enhancing digital forms, policies, and procedures.
  • Mining data to showcase safety / training KPIs to upper management.

What characteristics do you think are needed to be successful in your role?

I believe being driven, versatile, and approachable are vital components to being successful in the Training, Safety and Quality department.

How do you like to spend your time outside of work?

I really enjoy spending time with family, cooking, comedy shows, off-roading, and going to concerts.
