Chamber role provides real connections

TDS’ Nicole Lewis is a senior administrator for the Cable Field Marketing team and is based in the Colorado market. She has found a niche in volunteering with the Johnstown-Milliken Chamber of Commerce and now serves as its vice president.

“Working with the chamber has provided for some great referrals for TDS,” said Nicole. “It’s been a good working relationship and the chamber has provided for wonderful connections.”

Nicole started working with the chamber in 2016 as an ambassador and then was asked to serve on the board. Prior to her appointment as vice president, she served a year as the chamber secretary.

They must also attend chamber meetings, events, fundraisers and ceremonies and evaluate the effectiveness of the executive director of the chamber.

Hector Olivas, Jr., retail regional sales manager at TBK Bank, and president of the Johnstown-Milliken Chamber noted that “Nicole is a proven leader” with our chamber and communities.

“Over the last year and a half, our chamber has taken a much more positive and exciting leadership direction with its members,” said Olivas. “Nicole has been a vital piece of that leadership and the chamber is a better organization because of her!”

Nicole enjoys her work with the chamber and with the variety of events; she is making some real connections in Northern Colorado.

Nicole has worked at TDS for the last four years and previously worked for Rise Broadband and Comcast. Nicole is a Colorado native and says she “especially enjoys the rural communities here in Colorado.” Nicole has a daughter who is in seventh grade and plays volleyball.

Fun Fact: Colorado is not only the eighth largest state in the United States, but it is noted for its diverse geography of alpine mountains, high plains and deserts. The TDS Cable market in Colorado is from the Northern Colorado community of Wellington to the Southwestern community of Cortez (450 miles). The area also goes from Wellington to the middle of Colorado in Fort Carson (150 miles). There are two TDS wireline markets in Colorado. One is located near Strasburg, Colorado in the Eastern part of the state. The other is in Western Colorado near the communities of Hotchkiss, Cedaredge, Paoinia, Somerset and Crawford.
