In his new role, Heimbach will oversee day-to-day operations in the areas of network operations, information technology, call centers and field operations in addition to overall responsibility for the company's performance in the consumer wireline, small business and carrier markets.

Heimbach brings plenty of experience at the regional telco to his new post.

A 14-year company veteran, Heimbach previously served as senior vice president and general manager of Business & Carrier Markets from 2010 to 2013 before being named chief operations officer at Cincinnati Bell Telephone Company in March 2013.

His appointment comes at a time when Cincinnati Bell has been refreshing its top management team. In addition to Heimbach, fellow company veteran Leigh R. Fox became CFO. Earlier, Ted Torbeck took over from Jack Cassidy as president and CEO.

The regional telco is focusing more of its attention on providing fiber-based broadband services to its consumer and business wireline customers.

In Q3 2013, the telco reported that its Fioptics fiber to the home (FTTH) service was once again a key driver in its wireline revenue portfolio, rising 48 percent to $26 million.
