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.”
