Hawaiian Telcom announced that UH Mānoa alumnus Neal Matsumoto has joined the company as director of consumer direct sales.
Matsumoto, who brings more than 16 years of experience in sales and marketing, leads Hawaiian Telcom’s Multi-Dwelling Unit, Door-to-Door and Wireless sales teams. He previously served as manager of multi-dwelling units for Time Warner Cable, now owned by Connecticut-based Charter Communications.
“Neal’s wealth of expertise in direct sales will drive growth and efficiency as our consumer services including Hawaiian Telcom TV evolve and grow,” said Jason Fujita, vice president – Consumer Sales and Product Marketing. “As Hawaiʻi’s only local TV provider, we continue to enhance our services to meet the changing needs of our customers, and Neal’s extensive knowledge of our market and proven record of performance made him the perfect fit for this role.”
The Oʻahu launch of Hawaiian Telcom TV, Hawai'i's only Internet Protocol television service, in July 2011 marked a pivotal point in the company’s more than 130-year history. More than 39,800 customers subscribe to Hawaiian Telcom TV delivered over the company’s advanced, next-generation fiber network, which also enables Hawaiʻi’s fastest internet service.
A Mililani High School graduate, Matsumoto earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from UH Mānoa. He serves on the board of the Aloha Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
