Leading the charge locally in providing unparalleled internet services, Telmax has named Michael Strople as the company’s new chief executive officer.
Strople brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having previously served as president of Allstream and managing director of Zayo Canada.
As a member of the Telmax board of directors since July 2022, Strople has played a role in contributing to the expansive growth of the company. He has over two decades of leadership, coupled with extensive experience in technology, IT, operations, customer service and sales, which positions him as an ideal leader to steer Telmax into its next phase of significant growth.
“As Telmax continues its substantial growth and expansion, it is a privilege to lead the company into 2024 and beyond, bringing limitless possibilities and lightning connections to the communities that we serve today and in the future,” Strople said. “I am confident that Telmax’s dedication to innovation, community engagement and unparalleled customer service sets us apart as a provider unlike any other in Canada.”
Having commenced his career in research and development, Strople’s professional experience includes strategic and operational M&A expertise, successfully leading complex corporate integrations/separations and business transformations. His recent role as leader of Allstream showcased his commitment to accelerating business innovation through cloud communications technologies, simplifying customers’ business communications needs.
Stuart Roberts, who has guided the company since May 2022, will transition into the role of president and chief operating officer.
“I am pleased to hand the reigns of Telmax over to Michael. His skills and talents make a very welcomed – and valuable – addition to the leadership team,” commented Roberts.
As Telmax continues its expansion throughout the GTA and Southern Ontario, Strople’s unwavering dedication to driving growth and enhancing customer experiences aligns seamlessly with the company’s mission to become the most customer-centric, community-focused telecommunications company in Canada.
In 2023, Telmax expanded its pure fibre network from Brooklin and Stouffville to Newmarket and has just broken ground in Aurora. They are in the process of planning and approvals for two additional towns which will see construction begin in 2024. Telmax remains committed to providing faster, more reliable, and affordable high-speed fibre internet access to communities, prioritizing superior and local customer service, all achieved without relying on taxpayer dollars.
