Kurth becomes chair of Cable Europe
Cable Europe has confirmed the arrival of Matthias Kurth who is joining its team as Executive Chairman. Kurth will sit on Cable Europe’s Executive Committee which has oversight of the cable industry’s main representational duties in Europe.
Kurth recently held the position of President of the German Federal Network Agency, Bundesnetzagentur (BNetzA), the authority for telecommunications, postal, energy and railway markets in Germany, including frequency management and digital signature.
“Matthias brings extraordinary oversight of our sector given his experience in helping to drive Germany’s broadband take-up, running Europe’s first spectrum auctions for mobile broadband and serving as the Chair of the European Regulators Group at a time of crucial regulatory reform in European telecoms,” commented Cable Europe President, Manuel Kohnstamm.
