Steve Burks joins Cobalt Holdings as Senior Advisor - Resort Marketing, for Cobalt’s Mexico operating subsidiary, Cobalt Broadband Services S.A. DE C.V. Burks has 25 years of resort experience in leadership roles with Marriott, Disney and Bluegreen.  He also has marketed to resorts in the Mayan Riviera with his own marketing company and on NBC’s “Today Show” and many other media outlets.

“I am very excited to bring Cobalt’s value proposition to a region that has limited broadband connectivity,” Burks said. “In particular, we are providing ‘guaranteed bandwidth’ to the area’s more than 500 hotels and resorts with more than 200,000 rooms. We are the only provider that will design, build, maintain and, most importantly, finance each resort project – in exchange for a small per-room per-day charge.”

“We have worked with Steve in the past, and he is a proven performer, with deep industry contacts in the region,” said Larry Malone, President of Cobalt Holdings, Inc. “Our objective is to bring world-class Managed Broadband Services to the region, including completing a dedicated fiber-optic network with international connectivity to the rest of the world.”
