Thursday, June 25, 2020 | Comments

Anterix announced its executive leadership succession plan, with the board of directors unanimously appointing Anterix's President Rob Schwartz to succeed Morgan O'Brien as CEO and O'Brien to succeed Brian McAuley as executive chairman.

"With the achievement of our recent FCC report and order, we are empowering our next generation to lead Anterix into its future,” said O’Brien. “The evolution of Rob Schwartz into the CEO role has long been a personal goal of mine; and our board agrees that these new roles for Rob and me will best serve our employees, customers and shareholders. As CEO, Rob is the foundation for what we will become, and he has all the talent and drive to lead us forward. My future role at Anterix keeps me right where I enjoy being: at the heart of our strategic thinking with a special responsibility for developing our vision for the future, and working with our board to provide the unwavering support that Rob and the company will need going forward. As executive chair, I see my role to be his strongest advocate and his toughest critic. Over the many years we have worked together, we have forged the bond to make that relationship work.”

McAuley, who will remain on the board, and O'Brien were co-founders of Nextel and have worked together at Anterix.
