Joe started with Chatco, Inc. in 1989 building the very first wireless phone system in Phoenix Arizona, once the system was launched the crew was issued a cell phone and people would stop them on the street and want to check it out (they were very large back then, like a small car battery with a handset). Joe worked there until 1994 becoming a Project Manager and overseeing the construction of many wireless sites in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
He met Craig Snyder, Bart Roberts and Jimmy Cooper on a job in Utah. They all hit it off pretty well and when things didn’t work out with Chatco Joe went to work for Sioux Falls Tower (now VIKOR) in 1994 and has been with them ever since.
Joe has been lucky enough to travel coast to coast building towers in many states, but his love is the Mountain West. Joe says, “The beauty and tranquility of these mountains will keep me here for the rest of my days.”
When not working he like to ride motorcycles, hike, kayak, golf and practice yoga.
Joe Plainer is the State Liaison for Utah.
