Sachin Gupta, Director, Centranet

Sachin Gupta is the Director of Government Business and Economic Development at Centranet, a subsidiary of Central Rural Electric Cooperative. Over the last 18 years he has had a diverse career working in product management, business development and marketing for large government contractors. He has traveled to and worked with government officials in 32 different countries advocating for smart defense and security solutions. He has been a speaker at several domestic and international conferences and has talked about technical, legislative, and regulatory issues. He is well published in several broadband publications. He represents Cooperative Broadband Coalition (a coalition of 10 electric cooperatives) and advances its agenda at State and Federal levels. He has a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering and Telecommunications Management from Oklahoma State University. With his technical background and experience in marketing and business development he is a well-balanced blend of technocrat and diplomat, equally at ease talking about technology with engineers or explaining it in conversational terms to a non-technical person. Over his career, he has demonstrated the ability to accurately predict where technology-based challenges and opportunities exist as well as how to respond. 
Since he joined Centranet, he has forged relationships with local, county, state and tribal leaders in Oklahoma and has worked hard to ensure that broadband deployment, both last and middle mile and broadband adoption stays a topic of strong relevance with them.
