Vertical Consultants
Featured In The Wall Street Journal: “People of 5G”

Due to a major telecom company’s network expansion, several Midwestern states have seen a demand for new cell tower construction and the installation of new and improved equipment on existing cell towers. Vertical Consultants has recently assisted many Midwest landowners who have turned to them for guidance with their cell tower leases, including property owners from Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Michigan.

With this expansion into the Midwestern market, there is a need for property owners willing to lease their land for cell tower placement and, for those existing cell tower landlords, continuing their cell tower leases with their respective telecom tenants is vital. Vertical Consultants can work to negotiate terms that establish rights that are beneficial to the landowner while limiting the obligations that same party may have under that same agreement, or more to the point get the most and give up the least. A property owner’s first step will need to be to establish “True Value” of its site and go from there.

Hugh Odom, President and Founder of Vertical Consultants states, “As a result of recent mobile demand, networks are expanding their services in order to suffice these technological needs. This expansion is having a huge impact on the value of new cell tower leases and existing ones. Vertical Consultants makes it a priority to provide property owners from the Midwest, and all landowners throughout North America, with sufficient information and representation that will ultimately lead to their realization of the true value of their cell tower leases. ”

Giving credence to the assertion of disparity between property owners and telecom companies are Vertical Consultants’ results in not only increasing cell tower lease value, but also in recovering unpaid cell tower rents from telecom companies for their clients. In 2012, the telecom consulting firm increased property owners cell tower rent by 142% and has, in just over two years, recovered over 200 years’ worth of unpaid cell tower rent and expenses, collectively.

Vertical Consultants was founded in 2010 by Hugh Odom and is comprised of group of telecom experts with decades of combined telecom experience. Vertical Consultants prides itself as the only true landowner advocate, handling all aspects of a telecom lease from start to finish while garnering unmatched results for their clients.
