Soon-to-be Frisco-based Extenet, a leading privately held provider of digital infrastructure solutions, announced the appointment of Telisa Webb Schelin as its new senior vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary.
Extenet announced its relocation from the Chicago area to a new 37,000-square-foot space in the Frisco Station development in August. The company—which specializes in providing secure 5G and fiber-neutral host communications infrastructure—has worked on projects for the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, the Empire State Building, and Dallas’ Bank of America Plaza.
It’s an “opportunity to reimagine our future,” Richard Coyle, ExteNet’s president and CEO, previously said.
This week, ExteNet Systems announced that it has rebranded as Extenet. The new corporate name, along with a redesigned logo, website, and messaging, marks a major step forward for the company, which has experienced a year of “unprecedented growth and groundbreaking partnerships.” The brand rollout represents Extenet’s commitment to reimagine and reinvent how digital infrastructure is developed and deployed, the company said.
Setting up for expansion
“The Extenet team is thrilled to welcome the wealth of exceptional leadership and sound legal experience Telisa brings to us,” Rich Coyle, the company’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “As our business continues to grow, Telisa’s extensive management of complex legal and business issues will set us up for expansion and ensure we are moving the needle in key areas of focus for the coming years.”
Previously, Schelin was chief legal officer, executive vice president, and secretary for TIER REIT, a real estate investment trust focused on commercial office properties, before its merger with Cousins Properties.
At TIER REIT, she was responsible for all legal aspects of the company, including finance, real estate, and commercial business transactions, mergers and acquisitions, investor relations, lease and contract administration, litigation, risk management, and human resources.
She has nearly 25 years of legal experience in corporate governance, securities, and regulatory matters, and she was in private practice with Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP (now part of Foley & Lardner) before her time with TIER REIT.
Extenet is currently based in Lisle, Ill-based. The company said in August its move to Frisco is part of a “longer-term business strategy to bring ExteNet to the center of the industry’s ecosystem.” The move is projected to be completed by Q1 of 2023.
Extenet is a leading national provider of digital infrastructure solutions—LTE/5G wireless and fiber-neutral host communications—addressing outdoor, real estate, communities, and enterprise advanced connectivity needs
