The drivers of SBA Communications’ expansion into Central and South America
With countless opportunities and a relatively young market, what is the future of the tower industry in Central and South America?
Kurt Bagwell joined SBA Communications 2001 and since then, his career has changed dramatically. After becoming COO of US Operations in 2002, he is now in charge of the company’s thriving international operations in Canada, Central and South America.
SBA Communications is a leading tower company established in 1989 and headquartered in Boca Raton in South Florida. In 2012, SBA accomplished its first successful Brazilian acquisition of 800 towers from VIVO, a Telefonica subsidiary and, in recent months, it announced the deal with Oi for an additional 2,113 Brazilian towers, which closed in late November, and an additional deal with Oi for 2,007 more sites, expected to close on or before March 31, 2014.
