CommScope Appoints New Enterprise Technical Director for EMEA Region

January 4, 2013 LONDON

CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, today announced the appointment of William O’Connell to the position of technical director, EMEA for its Enterprise Solutions division.

Based in Dublin, Ireland, William will be responsible for driving technical support for enterprise customers throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa and ensuring they gain the optimum benefit from the full range of CommScope’s Enterprise portfolio.

As an industry expert who has worked in data and telecommunications for over 30 years, William brings a wealth of capability and knowledge to CommScope, having successfully driven growth and technical business development with leading network and telecommunications service providers worldwide. Prior to joining CommScope, William was Managing Director of solutions at Kendington where he built datacenters and enterprise networks within the Irish market. William also worked at OFS, where he assumed the role of marketing and sales director for EMEA for three years.

“William’s leadership position comes at a crucial time for CommScope as we nurture relationships with our customers and look to maximize their productivity and efficiency while minimizing their costs,” said Koen ter Linde, Vice President, Enterprise Sales Europe, CommScope. “His wealth of experience will be an asset to the team as we make important steps in shaping our business and supporting our partners and clients in the design and implementation of optimum solutions. William’s exceptional track record means he understands the salient points in driving success and credibility, and will be instrumental in taking our business to greater heights.”

“As IT evolves from being a support function within a business to being the platform upon which the business is executed, the efficiency of the IT function is becoming ever more critical to success,” commented William O’Connell. “CommScope’s technical team has evolved into a commercially aware group where solutions are designed not just for their technical superiority, but because they are the most cost effective solution to meet a client’s needs. We need more than very smart engineers, we need engineers that can understand our client’s business, identify inefficiencies, recommend solutions and design the most cost effective system to minimize capital and operating costs. I am looking forward to working with the team and supporting the increasing importance of CommScope’s IT infrastructure.”
