PCTEL Restructures, Promotes Executives
Wednesday, August 29, 2018 | Comments

PCTEL announced a strategic reorganization to drive company growth, consolidating its operations to address the convergence in the industrial internet of things (IoT), public safety and 4G infrastructure markets and the emergence of new technologies such as 5G.

Rishi Bharadwaj will serve as chief operating officer (COO) for the company, while Arnt Arvik will lead business development and sales as chief sales officer.

Prior to the reorganization, the company operated in two segments, connected solutions for the design and manufacture of antennas and related wireless products, and RF solutions for test and measurement tools that improve the performance of wireless networks globally. The company will operate and report as one entity beginning with the fiscal quarter ending Dec. 31.

“In recent years, we’ve found that many of the same customers need performance critical antennas, radio systems, and test and measurement tools to verify wireless networks,” said David Neumann, the company’s CEO. “This reorganization will facilitate faster growth in key vertical markets such as wide-area industrial IoT, public safety, rail and transit. Rishi and Arnt are both forward-thinking leaders with a deep understanding of our markets and technology.”

Bharadwaj most recently served as PCTEL’s senior vice president and general manager of the connected solutions segment. Prior to PCTEL, he held several RF and software engineering roles, developing data collection and data analytics tools for the cellular industry at SAFCO Technologies and then at Agilent Technologies, which acquired SAFCO.

Arvik most recently served as vice president of global sales for the PCTEL’s test and measurement tool product line. He joined the company in 2016 as vice president of Americas sales and engineering services for RF solutions. Prior to joining PCTEL, Arvik was vice president of Americas sales and operations and head of global supply for Ascom Network Testing. He also spent nine years with Ericsson as director of business development for the TEMS product line in the Americas.
