Brian Worthen graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor's degree in Small Business Management, with an emphasis on Finance. He purchased ownership in Visionary Communications in 2001 and worked to develop the company’s broadband portfolio in the Rocky Mountain region. Seeing an opportunity in the telecom marketplace, Worthen and his management team formed Mammoth Networks in 2005 to provide wholesale telecommunications services to ISPs and regional carriers. Mammoth quickly evolved into a Layer 2 Aggregator of disparate technologies and services onto a single, managed platform. Today, Worthen oversees strategic direction for the company’s operations from Seattle, Wash., to Minneapolis, Minn., to Albuquerque, N.M.
