ATX Networks, a global provider of network infrastructure systems and commercial video solutions, has appointed Charlie Vogt as President and Chief Executive Officer. The 30-year information technology and communications leader joins ATX following four successful years as President and CEO of Imagine Communications, where he transformed the company from Harris Broadcast to Imagine Communications and GatesAir, and led the media and broadcast industry’s transition to IP, software and cloud technologies.
Vogt succeeds Ken Wildgoose, who led the company as its President and then CEO for the last 18 years. Wildgoose will remain with ATX as an advisor and continue to serve on the Company’s Board of Directors.
“ATX Networks has a strong history of innovation and is well respected by its cable, satellite and enterprise clients,” said Vogt. “I have spent most of my career championing disruptive and innovative change by ushering in new business models and competitive solutions for communication service providers and media companies. The cable, satellite and telecommunications industries are undergoing transformative change as the world embraces new advanced technologies to deliver services cheaper, faster and better than before. I am thrilled to join the Company at such an exciting time in our industry and look forward to working closely with the ATX team and its impressive line-up of customers.”
