About our Management Team

Judith Chin is the Chief Operating Officer of CSC. She has an extensive background incorporating both the private and public sector in wireless infrastructure development. Her background includes experience with corporations such as Unison Site Management, AT&T, FDNY, T-Mobile and MetroPCS.  During her 15+ years in the industry, Judith has integrated and worked with several municipalities to streamline leasing, address municipal needs and create long lasting partnerships.  In working with carriers,  Judith also launched an initiative that was integral in getting allowances and processes in place not previously afforded to their network build-outs.  This carried over and became a large part of a national initiative for the decommissioning of MetroPCS sites while working with T-Mobile post integration of the acquisition thereof.

Her vast experience has allowed her to manage and develop new tenant relationships for national portfolios and facilitate the sale of wireless infrastructure portfolios to large publicly held financial institutions/major carriers.  She was also intimately involved with a new site build for the northeast section of the US including some of the most difficult areas to navigate zoning and legal requirements nationally.  She resides in New York with her husband and family.
