The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) announced two new board members: Bruce McClelland, president and CEO of Ribbon and Charlie Vogt, president and CEO of DZS.

“TIA is pleased to announce these new board members, who will only strengthen an already active group of directors,” said TIA CEO David Stehlin. “We welcome Bruce and Charlie, each of whom have been industry leaders for many years. The Board looks forward to gaining their perspectives on the important initiatives we are advancing as we advocate for our industry in this especially important time.”

McClelland became Ribbon’s CEO in March 2020 and is a technical business leader with a proven history of developing and growing sustainable businesses through technology and business cycles. Before joining Ribbon, McClelland was CEO at ARRIS and led its sale to CommScope, where he served as chief operating officer (COO).

“I’m very excited to join the TIA Board of Directors and help drive our industry forward,” said McClelland, “We face both tremendous opportunities and many challenges; TIA and its members are well positioned to provide the global leadership required to capitalize on these opportunities and address the challenges head-on.”

Vogt joined DZS as president and CEO in August 2020, bringing two decades of experience as a CEO and more than 35 years of professional experience in executing visionary innovation and strategies that resulted in unprecedented growth and profitability in communications markets. Prior to DZS, Mr. Vogt was president and CEO of four companies that have played key roles in transforming the communications and media distributions industries: ATX Networks, Imagine Communications, GENBAND (now Ribbon Communications) and Taqua.

“I am honored to assume a seat on the TIA Board of Directors,” said Vogt. “TIA and their members are on the forefront of tackling key issues for our industry. The world is rapidly moving towards hyper-connectivity, and communications and broadband have become a new essential utility to all consumers and businesses. I am excited for the opportunity to help drive the efforts that will shape the future of the telecommunications industry.”
