I welcome Kevin to CommScope and look forward to the positive impact he will make on our team and the customers we serve.”
Morgan Kurk, who previously headed CommScope’s Enterprise segment, has been named senior vice president, Wireless. He will have responsibility for product line management, engineering and R&D for the segment that serves wireless operators and OEMs globally. Kurk has more than 15 years experience in the wireless industry, including senior roles with Andrew Corporation, Allen Telecom and Motorola. He has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Brown University and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan and business administration from Northwestern University.
Ric Johnsen will continue as senior vice president, Broadband, leading the business responsible for serving cable multisystem operators and other broadband network providers around the world.
