Quelch to Step Down from TCCA Board
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 | Comments

Malcolm Quelch, vice chair of TCCA’s board and chair of the TETRA Industry Group (TIG), plans to retire. Quelch has served as a board member of TCCA for the past six years and has been vice chair since June 2016. He has been responsible for the activities of the TIG since 2013.

The TIG is the TCCA working group responsible for promoting TETRA, driving the development of the technology and advocating an evolutionary path for mission critical communications based on open standards.

Quelch has more than 20 years’ experience in telecoms, preceded by two decades in the semiconductor world. During his career he has worked for Philips Components, Philips Telecom–PMR, Simoco and as a consultant for Sepura. Much of his work has involved managing the technical activities of these businesses, with many of his posts at board level.

“I want to thank Malcolm for his enormous contribution, devotion to TCCA and the many hours of hard work he has put in it,” said TCCA Board Chair Mladen Vratonjić. “Malcolm was not only the vice chair of the board, he was our chief strategist, our financial and legal advisor, our main negotiator and the board member to whom we turned to help us to determine the board's collective attitude towards difficult issues. His many contributions to our success and that of the TETRA industry are immeasurable, and we are going to miss him tremendously.”

The new TCCA board vice chair will be determined at TCCA’s June board meeting. Francesco Pasquali is the new TIG chair. Pasquali has been a TCCA board member and director since 2006, responsible for liaison with the Technical Forum and the TCCA IOP Certification Authority (ISCOM).
