Morgan Kurk, CommScope’s current chief operating officer, will become chief technology officer of the combined organisation. Kurk and McClelland will both report to Eddie Edwards, CommScope president and chief executive officer.
“We continue to make progress to bring CommScope and ARRIS together and ensure we are better positioned to capitalize on emerging trends, including network convergence, fiber and mobility everywhere, 5G, and Internet of Things,” said Edwards. “Bruce and Morgan will play pivotal roles in leading our combined companies into a successful future”
“I am very excited to be part of the ARRIS/CommScope combination and look forward to joining such a talented team,” said McClelland. “Since announcing the transaction in November, we have worked closely with Eddie and the CommScope leaders developing detailed plans to capitalize on the incredible opportunities ahead and deliver a seamless transition.”
