Communication networks becoming increasingly critical as the way in which people connect changes
In his previous role as vice president of Enterprise at Cisco, Ogurek drove subscription and software-as-a-service sales across vertical markets, generating hundreds of millions in new portfolio revenue.
“The roles of communication networks are more critical than ever as people transform the way they connect and communicate,” said Ogurek. “My role is to ensure CommScope is aligned to what our customers need today and well into the future as they face an exponential increase in the demand for data, an emerging recognition that secure networks are a priority and a continuing evolution in network architecture,” he added.
