Melody Investment Advisors LP, an alternative asset manager focused on mission-critical communications infrastructure, has named the members of the firm’s senior advisory board. Composed of leading executives and thought leaders in the communications infrastructure industry, the senior advisory board is chaired by founder and managing partner, Omar Jaffrey.
The advisory board members include telecommunications and media executives Edward D. Horowitz, John W. Diercksen, Joseph J. Euteneuer, and Ronald T. LeMay.
“We are honored and pleased to have this veteran group of technology, media and telecommunications executives join the Melody Senior Advisory Board,” said Jaffrey. “I have worked extensively with these individuals during my 30-year career in the industry and am excited about the vision, long experience, and valuable deal sourcing networks they bring to us. With data consumption poised to potentially rise ten times over the next decade, I have never seen the demand for communications infrastructure be greater and believe that Melody is well positioned to further expand with additional acquisitions of infrastructure required for digital connectivity.”
As a specialist firm focused on communications infrastructure, MIA is seeking to invest in multiple areas within the ecosystem including wireless infrastructure (such as towers, rooftop cell sites and ground leases underneath towers), fiber and broadband connectivity platforms, data centers, edge-computing assets and satellite and related remote connectivity assets.
Jaffrey continued, “Our team includes some of the best and brightest in the communications infrastructure industry. I am extremely excited about the opportunity we have ahead of us at MIA. Going forward, we have already begun to execute on the tremendous number of investment opportunities we see in the digital infrastructure sector and remain focused on creating value for our investors.”
