Todd DeWitt serves as the VP of Engineering and Chief Security Officer for Oxford Networks. Primarily, his role in Engineering is to lead the team that designs and builds all aspects of the network and the network services for Oxford Networks.
As CSO, DeWitt is responsible for the organization’s security posture, both physical and digital. This includes managing the development and implementation of policy, procedure, standards, and guidelines to ensure the security, availability, and confidentiality of all Oxford Networks systems.
DeWitt joined Oxford Networks in 1999 as the Network Administrator. In 2000, he was promoted to General Manager of Internet Services and tasked with finding technology that would propel Oxford Networks from a traditional “Telephone Company” into an Internet Services company. In 2001, Oxford Networks took two pioneering steps that would define the company as it today; building physical network outside of it’s incumbent territory and deploying that network as Fiber-to-the-Premise.
DeWitt resides in Auburn with his wife Lorna and has two children – Aaron and Emily. Todd is an avid long distance runner and Triathlete.

As a startup health insurance organization, MCHO was able to call the shots when it came time to design their IT infrastructure. They chose a cloud path that was practically hardware free, while keeping their virtualization expansion alive in Oxford Networks’ data center. And they haven’t looked back since.
“ It was good to be working with a local partner that had the facilities to service us at a virtualized level, and provide the security and infrastructure that we needed.”
