president and chief executive officer
Stacey is the President and CEO of CTS Telecom, a third generation family owned business. CTS has proudly served the local community since 1911. Her grandfather, John Collver, purchased the telephone company in 1949 and it has remained with the family ever since. The company has come a long way from solely providing bare wire telephone service to Climax residents. Today, CTS is the leading provider of fiber-optic telecommunications solutions to businesses in Southwest Michigan. CTS has been recognized as one of the Best and Brightest Companies to work for in West Michigan for 2018 and 2019, and the Best and Brightest in the Nation for 2018.
Stacey’s career has included working for a telecommunication consulting firm outside of Washington DC as well as a large telephone company in Chicago, Illinois. Upon returning home to the Kalamazoo area in 2003, she managed her husband’s oral surgery practice until she joined CTS in 2011.
Stacey holds a BA in business from Wake Forest University and a MBA from DePaul University. She remains active in her community, serving on the boards of Southwest Michigan First, Battle Creek Unlimited, Binder Park Zoo and Southern Michigan Bancorp, Inc.
Residing in Richland, Ms. Hamlin and her husband, Jeff, have two sons who attend Gull Lake Community Schools. When not leading CTS, she enjoys running, cooking, and watching her boys play sports.
