About Us

Tower Innovations, Inc. was founded in 1999 by Bruce McIntyre who has over 30 years experience in the wireless industry.  Bruce was the Vice President and General Manager of Highpoint Tower Technology when their tower assets were sold to Pinnacle Towers. Prior to that, he was the Vice President and General Manager of Tower Technology Corp since 1985.  While with Tower Technology and Highpoint Tower Technology, Bruce was responsible for operations, site acquisition, and site development.  He received his technical training in the U.S. Air Force as a Communications/Navigation Technician during the Viet Nam War.  After serving 4 years in the Air Force, including a year in Southeast Asia and 1 years in the USAF 1st Special Operations Wing, Bruce joined Motorola C&E as a Section Service Representative. Bruce spent 14 years with Motorola as a Service Representative, Service Manager and Account Executive.   During that tenure,  Bruce was involved in the design and deployment of several large integrated systems that provided fixed microwave, land mobile radio, data and voice. He was also involved in the deployment of the U.S. Coast Guard VHF marine system and a large integrated communications system for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Shortly after founding Tower Innovations, Inc., he was hired by Pinnacle Towers to build a 1,000 ft broadcast tower in Jacksonville, Florida.  Bruce is probably the only person to ever convince a homeowners association to support a 1,000 tower in their back yard.

Among these, he has designed and implemented master antenna systems for Richland Towers and has performed site acquisition work for TerreStar Networks and Hughes Network Services.  He also worked with Qualcomm/ Black and Veatch to deploy the MediaFlo system and the Hamilton County, IN.
