Chestnutt goes Grande
Chestnutt, who assumes that role effective Feb. 13, replaces interim CEO Scott Ferguson. Ferguson took that spot in July 2005 following the departure of Bill Morrow, who remains on the Grande board.
Before Sprint-Nextel, Chestnutt held executive slots at PrimeCo Personal Communications and AirTouch Cellular.
Grande offers services in portions of Austin, Corpus Christi, suburban northwest Dallas, Midland, Odessa, San Antonio, San Marcos and Waco.
