Windstream names Sarah Hardin vice president of governmental affairs in the Carolinas

 RALEIGH, N.C. — Windstream, a leading provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions, today announced that it has named Sarah Hardin to serve as its vice president for governmental affairs for North Carolina and South Carolina.

Hardin becomes a Windstream vice president following recent roles leading government affairs efforts for the state lottery and the North Carolina Dental Society. At both she managed state campaigns as well as coordinated with Washington-based congressional leaders and policy experts. Before that, she shaped North Carolina state policy and regulatory reform for a major telecommunications company on such issues as broadband Internet deployment.

Hardin will be based in Raleigh and report to Stacy Hale, president of operations for Windstream in the Carolinas.

“Kinetic customers here have everything to gain from Sarah’s hire,” Hale said. “She is a blue-chip talent and a well-regarded leader in public policy in the state capital, coordinating huge public investments like the North Carolina Education Lottery and, before that, regulatory reform in telecommunications. That will be important as Kinetic by Windstream expands high-speed Internet access to customers around North and South Carolina.”

“I’m so thrilled to join Windstream and begin working on policies and plans that will advance rural broadband in both states,” Hardin said. “These last two years and the next for Windstream mark a period of accelerated service growth for Windstream and its customer base in these states, and with it comes opportunities for new enterprises, new business and lots of residential Internet speed offers.”

Hardin is a proud graduate of North Carolina State University in Raleigh where she majored in communications with a minor in Spanish. Last year she was named the 8th most powerful lobbyist in the state by “Longleaf Politics.”
