Lumos Networks Corp. (“Lumos Networks” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: LMOS), a fiber-based service provider of data, voice and IP-based telecommunication services in the Mid-Atlantic region announced that the Board of Directors of the Company has appointed Johan G.

“On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Hal for his service to the Company and wish him the very best,” said Tim Biltz, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Hal joined us in September of 2011 as we were preparing to become a public company. He played an important role in all that we accomplished during his three years with us and we are grateful for his continued help during this transition.” Mr. Biltz continued, “We are committed to carrying out a thorough search to identify the right CFO candidate to join our company as we continue to pursue our transformation goals of expanding our fiber network within our core markets and edge out markets, growing our fiber-based broadband services, and expanding our FTTC carrier Ethernet business. We are pleased that Johan has agreed to serve as interim Chief Financial Officer until a successor is appointed. Johan is a valued member of our team, currently serving as our Chief Accounting Officer. He has an in-depth understanding of our company. We expect him to provide strong leadership in the interim allowing for a smooth transition.”

Mr. Broekhuysen, age 43, joined the Company in November 2012 as Vice President and Corporate Controller and was appointed Chief Accounting Officer in January 2014.
