Morgan Alum Tapped to Head Virgin Island’s Company as CEO

Dr. Tonjia Coverdale has been at her new job as Chief Executive Officer of the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) for less than a month, however, the former Elections System Technology Coordinator and IT professor at the University of the Virgin Islands, told VI Consortium in a recent Q&A that technology is the sector that will help grow the territory’s economy and lead a new wave of prosperity.

As the new boss of viNGN, Coverdale plans on implementing a strong public relations campaign.

“This is a major shift in life as we know it,” Coverdale said about technology and viNGN’s broadband capabilities. “In fact, one of my first efforts is a huge public awareness and education campaign on why broadband adoption is important for us.”
