Retired President and Current Board Member
Before being named the president in 2005, Ed served over 20 years at Cal-Ore with a variety of responsibilities as a financial consultant, controller, and later as Cal-Ore’s general manager. Ed retired in April 2020 after 35 years of service and still actively serves on our Board of Directors.
Under Ed’s leadership, Cal-Ore evolved from a local telephone company in Dorris, California, into a leading voice and data provider serving Southern Oregon and Northern California with over a 400-mile network of company-owned fiber.
With this network, Cal-Ore provides traditional phone services as well as enterprise-grade fiber internet connections, voice-over-IP, online backup, and other hosted data services. Outside of life at Cal-Ore, Ed enjoys his time in the garden, beekeeping, bird hunting, photography and time with his family.
