CommScope, 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.

Ter Linde joined CommScope in 1995 and has served in several sales management positions. His most recent position was regional managing director of sales, Enterprise, for eastern and western Europe. He began his career in the telecommunications industry working for AT&T in product marketing.

Forde has held several management positions within CommScope over the past 13 years. Most recently, Forde was managing director of sales, Enterprise, in the Middle East and Africa. His began his career in the telecommunications industry working for British Telecom and Raychem.
