Kent has been on the Santel board since 1984 and is our current At-Large Director. He lives just outside of Woonsocket and operates a family farm as well as participates in his wife’s watermelon business. They are joined by their three grown children and their respective families in operating a very diverse and fast changing operation. Kent has several other areas of community involvement: T&C Fire Board treasurer, Woonsocket Community Club, St Wilfrid’s Catholic Church, and the Knights of Columbus.
When asked about the longevity of several Santel board directors, he said, “It is critical to stay on top of the technology and regulation changes and opportunities. Our cooperative has benefited by defining and being dedicated to a long-term vision, patience, and at the same time opportunistic.”
