CommScope Chief Operating Officer
We’ve set an ambitious course for our Network & Cloud and Professional Services groups in 2019. And I’m happy to let you know that Kevin Keefe has agreed to lead this business effective immediately.
The exponential growth in subscriber data consumption and proliferation of connected devices are placing unprecedented demand and complexity on the broadband network. At the same time, advances in technology are providing our Service Provider customers with an array of alternatives. The network architecture and design decisions made today will set the course for years to come. It’s an exciting and challenging time, and they need the kind of seasoned, expert counsel we deliver.
Our Network & Cloud and Professional Services teams have played a vital role in the design and deployment of the current broadband network, and are at the leading edge of innovating on the next generation of distributed, virtualized networks. As the leader of this team, Kevin will contribute his expertise in the drivers of our customers’ business, the business challenge of balancing capital investment with performance demands; and he will use his global vantage point to spot best practices that can jump-start our customers’ most important investments.
Kevin has held senior leadership positions worldwide during his 24-year career. These include several General Manager positions for the company, and we look forward to his holistic view helping customers decide on investments that will create subscriber growth and exceptional user experiences. Kevin initially joined ARRIS with the company’s acquisition of Motorola Home (the original General Instrument).
Please join me in congratulating Kevin on his new role.
