APC Towers, one of the top private national tower developers in the country, is a “build to suit,” carrier-focused organization, developing BTS sites while actively acquiring sites and managing rooftop properties for landlords. APC’s experienced team continually delivers the most value by anticipating obstacles and finding solutions to quickly enable carriers to deploy their network and exceed timelines.
It all began with lifelong friends and entrepreneurs, Daniel C. Agresta III, President & CEO and Mark Cravens, Chief Development Officer, who have over 50 years of combined experience in telecommunications. APC Towers has been going strong for over five years. The company is currently operating across thirty-seven states, working with major and rural carriers on a national and regional level.
“What we pride ourselves on at APC, is our focus on operations and the importance of executing and meeting timelines,” said Agresta. “We’ve worked to eliminate the ‘layers,’ like those found in corporate America, to enable us to make decisions quickly, stay nimble and build sites rapidly.”
The “yin-yang” team of Agresta and Cravens, combines knowledge and experience from over three decades in the public sector with an entrepreneurial spirit — one targets strategic growth activities and national negotiations, while the other focuses on sales and operations (aka, making sure the towers are getting up into the air). Of course, they have help from their experienced staff.
“We have a great team here with extensive experience,” said Agresta. “With our mix of employees and contacts from the infrastructure, carrier, and service side of the business, we maintain a 360-degree perspective on all projects in our pipeline.”
And owners Agresta and Cravens are “all in” when it comes to the telecommunications industry. “I’ve dedicated my entire career to this industry,” said Agresta. “I serve as President of the Carolinas Wireless Association and am Co-Chairman of the IDF. I hope our commitment to the industry, and doing right by our partners, shines through in everything we do as a company.”
Since APC Towers knows there are many choices in the industry when it comes to tower developers, they pride themselves on continuing to prove their abilities and perform by delivering on time. Being in the space as long as Agresta and Cravens have, they recognize tower developers are only as good as the last tower they’ve built; that is why they hold themselves and the entire team accountable to excel at meeting or exceeding customers’ expectations, with an emphasis on delivering results.
“At the end of the day, I believe what differentiates us from most others in this business, is that either Mark or I are always overseeing build-outs around the country, dividing and conquering, so our team is only one phone call away or a walk down the hall from getting a decision made on the spot. Our customers deserve that type of service,” said Agresta.
APC Towers is headquartered in Raleigh, NC with additional offices in Ohio, Arizona, and Texas. The company is the preferred infrastructure provider for all carriers requiring operational excellence.
