In 2021, InSite partnered with Ranch Creek Partners and True West Capital Partners to expand operations and invest in further growth with a mission to grow the company into the market leader for Telecom Services in the Western United States. As a result, CEO Tom Prestwood joined the company and InSite expanded into the Northern California market. In 2021 InSite also acquired Nautical Communications, led by industry veterans Chris Dunn and Blake Miracle, to expand into the Arizona market. Looking ahead InSite expects to continue to expand throughout the Western United States by developing and deploying its own team of experts and by partnering with industry leading contractors throughout the region.
