Goals of Millennial Reception at PTC 2020 Include Collaboration, Mentorship, Investment in the Future
NJFX was honored to host the inaugural Millennial Reception at PTC ‘20, which offered attendees at PTC the amazing opportunity to network, engage and build relationships to foster the infusion of young talent entering the telecommunications industry. The company’s resident millennial, General Manager Felix Seda, says he hopes the reception will become an annual event and eventually expand to other conferences.
“We want to have young leaders in the industry become empowered and become more vocal. We would also like to have industry veterans become mentors,” adds Mr. Seda.
Newest NJFX team member Sarah Kurtz is a digital native, and is taking initiative to remind industry newcomers and hopefuls alike that it is filled with opportunity, excitement, and innovation. Growing up in the internet age brings a fresh perspective to the industry. Millennials also bring an extensive knowledge of new and existing tech.

NJFX’s attendance at PTC was a milestone event for an additional reason. The organization honored NJFX with the “Outstanding Cloud, Data Center, or Interconnection Company” award.
“To be recognized as an industry leader by such a highly regarded organization is truly an honor,” says Gil Santaliz, CEO of NJFX. “This achievement confirms that our efforts to bring unprecedented interconnection via our world-class ecosystem of carriers and subsea providers is truly the model that the industry is looking for.”
