Liberty Global’s vice-president of technology, Bill Warga, has been elected chairman of the board for The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and its global arm, the International Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE).
Warga, who most recently served as vice chairman of the SCTE•ISBE board, will hold the chairman role for the 2017-18 term, while Comcast Cable’s president of technology and product, Tony Werner, will serve as past chair.
“We’re grateful to Tony Werner for providing the guidance and support that have helped SCTE•ISBE adapt to changes in the industry environment,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE•IISBE.
“We look forward to working with Bill Warga as we continue to build domestic and international partnerships that can deliver business value to our operator, technology partner and individual members.”
The appointment came as the SCTE•ISBE elected a full slate of officers for the coming year at the SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2017 in Denver, Colorado.
