Tung Bui (CEO)
Tung’s engineering and legal background allows him to span widely across the industry. During his first seven years out of college, he was focused on building high-capacity fiber-optic networks between major cities across the Pacific Northwest. He spent the next fourteen years building up T-Mobile’s wireless network (radio frequency [RF] designing, leasing, zoning, constructing cell towers, rooftops, switches, hire and train engineering and real estate staff) from ground zero when T-Mobile had no customers and no cell towers. As Executive Director of Engineering, Site Development and Operations, Tung signed many of the wireless tower and rooftop leases on behalf of T-Mobile across the West Region markets.
Today, Tung focuses primarily on business strategies and directions for CellWaves. He is constantly and strategically aligning with major real estate portfolios nationwide to leverage all CellWaves’ clients lease positions in the industry. The more properties we represent, the more leverage we have when negotiating for our property clients. Occasionally, on matters involving engineering, zoning, or construction, or complex transactions that require his expertise, Tung would personally be involved and manages those relationships directly himself with tower developers, clients, wireless carriers and tower companies.
We often find Tung talking with construction crews on rooftops at new site builds or meeting with a hotel chain owner or new wireless carriers that CellWaves has just signed up to represent. Tung still chuckles when he sees his signature representing T-Mobile on wireless leases for clients that he now represents.
