"Smart growth is a top priority for Blackfoot," said Bill Squires, Blackfoot's chief executive officer, in a statement.

Jeff Tarbert, who has been heading Cutthroat's operations since 2008 added, "I look forward to working with Blackfoot to ensure the smoothest possible ownership transition. Customers should rest assured that Cutthroat and Blackfoot will be vigilant about maintaining the high quality of service they deserve and have come to expect from both companies."
