Allied Fiber

Hunter Newby is the CEO of Allied Fiber, a carrier neutral provider of dark fiber with a national footprint addressing the lack of accessible dark fiber in the market by making it available for long term lease. He is a twelve year veteran of the telecom networking industry and has built a depth of creative and management experience and expertise in multiple disciplines within the field ranging from sales, marketing and technical aspects to network engineering and raising capital.

Prior to founding Allied Fiber, Mr. Newby was Chief Strategy Officer of the Telx Group, Inc., one of the leading carrier hotel interconnection facility operators in the U.S. Telx was founded in 2000 to address the need for a neutral environment for colocation and interconnection for all network operators. Mr. Newby led the direction of the company into this new dimension of the communication networking industry that had previously never existed. Under Mr. Newby’s direction, Telx successfully created an entirely new business model and built the strongest brand name in the world for carrier-neutral core interconnection facilities.

During his tenure at Telx, Mr. Newby participated in management meetings with investors continually assisting in the capital raising process to fund the business as it grew. Through his role at Telx as Chief Strategy Officer and ultimately a member of the Board, he was directly involved in more than $500 million in transactions between 2003 and 2007. He built and trained an outstanding sales team which produced consistent positive monthly, quarterly and annual revenue growth even through the telecom industry's downturn in the early 2000’s.
