Brian Worthen graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor's degree in Small Business Management, with an emphasis on Finance. Worthen grew up in the family motorcoach business and after college was instrumental in the company’s sale to Coach USA, which later went through a public offering and a series of acquisitions and rollups. Prior to departing the transportation industry, Worthen managed more than 300 employees in five states. He purchased ownership in Visionary Communications in 2001 and worked to develop the company’s broadband portfolio in Wyoming. 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.
