Our very own Felix Seda, General Manager at NJFX, was honored in a virtual ceremony October 28 by NJBiz as one of New Jersey’s “40 under 40”. The program honors professionals in New Jersey under 40 who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to their company’s growth and development. The awards show that professional excellence can be achieved well before a 40th birthday with hard work and passion.
Felix was selected for the honor due to his professional accomplishments and dedication to bringing young talent into the telecommunications industry, a challenge that has been particularly difficult for the subsea sector. Felix quickly climbed the ranks of NJFX, becoming the General Manager after only five years with the company. His dedication and determination to NJFX’s unique mission of creating an avenue for carriers and networks to get as close to the edge as possible and bridging the gap between the subsea cable landing station and landline fiber routes makes him an incredibly valuable asset to the company.
Beyond NJFX, Felix has spearheaded multiple initiatives to educate young professionals on the value of a career in subsea and telecom. He created the Millennial Reception at PTC 2020 to encourage industry newcomers to network with each other and industry veterans to better establish themselves in their careers, and is also working closely on Diversity and Inclusion with SubOptic. He has proven himself as an influential leader and inspiring mentor for young telecom professionals.
The NJFX team is proud to have Felix as a valuable asset for our business. He has proven time and time again through his forward-thinking initiatives, collaborative approach and hardworking spirit that he will continue to become a true icon in the telecommunications industry. Congratulations, Felix!
