Frontier Communications Opens Center In Allen, Texas

Stocks in this article: FTR

Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) formally opened a new center in Allen, Texas on January 25, 2012. Approximately 500 employees work in a 84,000 square-foot facility located at 805 South Central Expressway. Members of Frontier’s senior leadership team and all Frontier Allen employees joined state and local civic, community and business leaders at the ribbon-cutting ceremony which included Presentation of Colors by the Wylie High School Air Force Junior ROTC and several Frontier employees who are military veterans and reservists.

At the ceremony, Frontier senior executives, including Chairman and CEO Maggie Wilderotter; Dan McCarthy, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer; Kathleen Abernathy, Chief Legal Officer and Executive Vice President of Government Affairs; and Cecilia McKenney, Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Call Center Sales and Service, spoke of the company’s commitment to Allen and intent to hire more employees in the areas of marketing, product development, Internet help desk management, customer service and engineering.

“Frontier is pleased to help drive economic growth in north Texas and to be the second-largest employer in Allen,” said Ms. McKenney. “This center is a world-class facility with a work environment that brings together various customer-touching departments in a highly collaborative environment. It also continues our commitment to serving customers with a 100% U.S.- based workforce with an emphasis on hiring military veterans and reservists.”

The Allen Center is also home to a new National Operations Center (NOC), one of several that manage the traffic and security of Frontier’s national communications network. Specialized telecommunications equipment and highly-trained engineers allow 24/7 monitoring, maintenance, and restoration of Frontier networks and services.

Frontier’s diverse portfolio of communications products and services for residential, business and enterprise customers, as well as marketing communications, are also being centrally managed from the Allen office.

The company encourages those interested in a Frontier future to visit its Careers website at to view available positions at the Allen Center.
