RG Towers LLC develops, owns, builds and operates wireless communication towers. The Jupiter, Fla.-based company leases towers to carriers and is a turnkey operation starting with finding sites to an operational tower. The company focuses on the Southeast region but has relationships along the Atlantic Coast as far away as New England.
Scott Richards, CEO of RG, has 24 years of experience in the wireless telecommunication industry. The business was originally a commercial real estate company and was approached in 1992, by a telecommunication company looking for someone to broker rooftop leases for them.
“We figured a lease is a lease and it worked,” Richards said. “When the Telecommunications Act of 1996 came out, we positioned ourselves as a commercial real estate company specializing in telecom real estate.” RG is still an active brokerage that often brokers deals for purchasing tower sites and leasing.
As the company became more and more involved with the telecommunications industry, Richards selected independent contractors to work with everything from site searching to building to operations. Site acquisition is RG’s specialty and other core services include rooftop management, tower management, site consulting and site development.
“More than a dozen towers were added to RG’s constructed-site inventory in 2015, with several now under construction,” Richards said. “Our goal is to continue to focus our energies and efforts on developing macro sites for our clients in the most challenging areas where there are unserved coverage objectives.” For additional information on RG Towers LLG, go to: http://rgtowers.com
