How to manage towers in high risk markets
Frontier Tower Solutions have built and manage over 1,200 towers in Afghanistan and Iraq - and are now focused on deals in East Africa and the Americas
Frontier Tower Solutions are appropriately named. Over the last year CEO Montgomery Simus and COO Chris Lundh have built a towerco with a unique appetite for acquiring, building and operating towers in frontier markets: they have experience in Afghanistan and Iraq, two of the toughest parts of the world, and they are closing in on opportunities in Africa and South America. FTS focus on tower markets that are largely off the radar screen for other towercos, either because they are believed to be too small, or because the market is considered too risky.
