The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has confirmed the appointment of Bill Warga, VP, technology and a member of the Chief Architecture Group for Liberty Global, to the SCTE board of directors.
Warga, a veteran of more than three decades in the broadcasting and cable industries, is responsible for the research and evaluation of new, innovative technologies as they relate to Liberty Global’s business, strategic and operational activities in Europe and the Americas. He will assume his new SCTE role when the 2014-15 board is seated in September.
Warga will replace Mike LaJoie, executive vice president and CTO of Time Warner Cable, the only appointed SCTE board member whose term expires this year.
“Bill Warga’s expertise and guidance will be invaluable as we increase the scope of SCTE to encompass new products and services, both in the United States and in the international marketplace,” said Terry Cordova, senior VP and CTO of Suddenlink Communications and chairman of the SCTE board of directors. “We’re grateful to him for committing the time and resources needed to advance our industry, and to my predecessor as chairman, Mike LaJoie, for his many contributions to SCTE.”
