WHS graduate is CEO of high tech company

Former Letcher County resident Bill Eversole is the chief executive officer of Bandspeed Inc., which sells technology for managing Wi-Finetworks. The Austin, Tex.-based company recently raised $8 million in venture capitol to push its products forward.

Bandspeed and its CEO were the subject of a recent article in the Austin American-Statesman, which said, “Founded in 1998, the company initially developed technology for high-speed Internet access over phone lines, but it switched to making equipment for wireless networks in 2003.

“Bandspeed’s AirMaestro product line enables small and mid-size businesses to install automated and secure Wi-Fidata networks.

“‘We’re targeting companies that have very thin IT staffs, or maybe don’t even have an IT person, and need something that’s very easy to deploy, very simple to manage,’ CEO Bill Eversole said.

“Bandspeed has 55 employees between its Austin headquarters and a development center in Bangalore.”

Bill Eversole is a 1969 graduate of Whitesburg High School Class. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Eversole and is married to the former Jenny Bowen, also from Whitesburg.
