From Telephony Online:
On what he hopes will be the eve of a successful acquisition by Paetec, McLeod USA CEO Royce Holland is looking forward to not working full time. But he still has a lot to say about the competitive service provider space he helped create, as an early member of the Metropolitan Fiber Systems team and the founder of Allegiance Telecom (now XO Communications). …
The merger is expected to close in late January, Holland said, at which point, he will go back to doing what he was doing before taking on McLeod.
“My wife and I would like to get back to hiking, which I haven’t had much time for lately, and I’ll continue working futilely on my miserable golf game,” he said.
Holland will keep a hand in the industry as a member of the board of directors of Masergy and said he will explore other options as well, including special purpose acquisition companies. But for now, he’s looking forward to taking some time off.
