FirstNet Association Congratulates FirstNet Acting CEO Ed Parkinson
Sometimes all is right in the world. That is exactly what it felt like when learning that Ed Parkinson was appointed the CEO of the FirstNet Authority. I can’t imagine a better choice to carry the Authority into the next phase of providing public safety with the network we’ve all worked so hard to bring to reality.
