Inc. has named new leadership for two sales regions recently created
following the promotion of Anne Marie Kenneally to senior vice president
of Global Enterprise Sales, where she will lead all of CommScope’s
business enterprise sales activities around the world. She previously
served as regional vice president of Enterprise sales for Europe, Middle
East and Africa.
“As a global infrastructure leader, CommScope is at the forefront of
bandwidth delivery enabling our customers to empower their networks,”
said Peter Karlsson, senior vice president, Global Sales, CommScope.
“The proliferation of connected devices is placing increased demands on
our customers in numerous areas including technology, intelligence and
energy. As CommScope continues to expand its global infrastructure
solutions portfolio, we are focused on what is important to our
customers and partners and the challenges they are dealing with on a
daily basis. I look forward to Anne Marie’s global leadership in
charting our capabilities and helping our business enterprise customers
and partners turn all infrastructure challenges into successes.”
Two veteran sales leaders within CommScope have been promoted to head a
revamped sales territory formerly managed by Kenneally. In the new
Europe region, Koen ter Linde, based in the Netherlands, has been named
vice president of Enterprise sales, and Ciaran Forde, based in Dubai,
has been named vice president of Enterprise sales for the new Middle
East and Africa region. Both report to Kenneally.
“As CommScope continues to strengthen its focus on customers, partners
and regional requirements, we recognized the need to divide the former
EMEA sales region into two—Europe as one and the Middle East and Africa
as another,” said Kenneally. “We believe Koen and Ciaran have the
experience and leadership skills to achieve success in their new
positions. We look forward to having them continue to develop and grow
customer and partner relationships in their regions, and contribute
strongly to the overall success of our global Enterprise team.”
Currently based in Bray, Ireland, Kenneally will relocate to Richardson,
Texas next year. She began her telecommunications career in 1985 working
in customer service at AT&T. Serving primarily in sales positions with
increasingly more responsibility, she remained with the organization
during the transitions to Lucent, Avaya and finally CommScope in 2004.

management positions. His most recent position was regional managing
director of sales, Enterprise, for eastern and western Europe. He began
