Wayne Hutchens is a native of Tennessee but has called Alabama home since 1983. He is a true testament to the American dream. In 1971 Wayne began his career as a lineman for South Central Bell company.

Through hard work and grit, Hutchens stopped scaling high telephone poles, and made his way up the ladder of AT&T to serve as the director of regulatory and external affairs in Alabama and docket/issues manager for Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina and Tennessee.
