The FTTH Council Europe Board of Directors has appointed Ronan Kelly as new President. He becomes the eighth person to hold the position since the organisation was founded in 2005. Kelly replaces outgoing President Edgar Aker, who has occupied the position for the past year.
In addition to his new position as President of the FTTH Council Europe, Kelly is also CTO, EMEA & APAC Regions at ADTRAN.
“It is a great honour to have been chosen as the new President of the FTTH Council Europe. A lot has happened in the past year during Edgar Aker’s presidency” commented Kelly. “The FTTH market has matured and European decision-makers have shown a more “business-friendly” approach to broadband policies. In continuity with last year’s strategy and working plan, we need to ensure that the call for accelerated fibre deployment is heard by all the broadband stakeholders who can make a change in Europe, with a special focus on operators for the year 2016.”
