In a unanimous decision by the Board of Directors, MoCA has appointed Charles Cerino as its first full-time, paid president. The growth of the market worldwide, ongoing technology development and enhancement, and the overall progress and evolution of the Alliance required a full time president.
Cerino has been president of the Alliance since 2007 while also serving as Board representative for Comcast. He will no longer represent Comcast on the Board but will continue to sit on the Board as an independent representative unaffiliated with any company.
“The Board realised that the organisation required the attention of an actively engaged president and that the best person for the job was already in place,” said William Beals, MoCA Vice President.
A cable industry veteran of more than 40 years, Cerino retired as Vice President of Comcast Center Technology.
“I am honoured by the Board’s decision and look forward to interacting with our members and operators as we continue to evolve the technology and set our sights higher and faster worldwide,” said Cerino. “We anticipate an exciting year for the Alliance. The progress on our next generation specifications will solidify our position in home networking for years to come.”
