Century Airwaves is led by Bruce Scapier, President and Founding Partner. Bruce's history in the telecommunications industry goes back over 30 years.
While still attending college at Columbia University in New York, Mr. Scapier began his business career in international finance through personal contacts in Korea and the US. In addition to studying a liberal arts curriculum at Columbia, Mr. Scapier augmented the scope of his education by simultaneously attending classes at New York Polytechnic Institute, also in New York City. Mr. Scapier has had a global career from early on, working with the largest and most influential and renowned firms and individuals in Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Egypt, Mexico and Canada.
Early in his career in international finance, Mr. Scapier developed a methodology for “stand-by” financing of goods or services reflecting market conditions while producing stability. This type of transaction is now in common practice. Seriatim, Mr. Scapier was responsible for spot marketing, as well as long term financing in petroleum, pulp and paper and transactions involving products and services sensitive to international governmental politics, for example: the sale of Saudi oil to Israel.
Mr. Scapier also developed relationships within the telecom industry at the highest levels, predominantly dealing with the utilization of spectrum. In 1997, he moved into wireless telecom where he became interested and involved with 800 MHz spectrum utilization. He acquired all of the available 800 MHz spectrum in Alaska and put together what is now the Sprint system in Alaska.
