Meet Minburn Communication Staff: Doug Rothfus
Doug Rothfus is a guy who enjoys creating things. At a young age he realized that the communications industry was a field that is always changing with opportunity to create. So after high school Doug pursued a technology degree from DMACC and immediately after graduation joined Minburn Communications as a technician.
Twenty-five years later, Doug's title and responsiblities have evolved to Plant Manager. His role is to manage all facilities including the fiber network. His tasks include network planning, vendor relations, building, turning up and managing plant facilities while ensuring our communication services are running smoothly. Doug, along with his staff of four technicians, has overseen the construction of every fiber route mile Minburn Communications has deployed. In addition to the plant facilities, Doug also provided construction guidance on the new Corporate Office and will contine to help the company upgrade our other locations.
"I am proud to be in the forefront of constructing a fiber connection to our customers," says Doug. "But the thing I enjoy most about my job is having an opportunity to provide the most current, state-of-the-art technology service to a community that I have been able to call home my entire life."
Doug grew up in Woodward and continues to live in and enjoy the community with his wife and children.
