November 10, 2014 – The Communications Cable & Connectivity Association’s (CCCA) current executive director, Frank Peri (who led the organization since its inception in 2007), is retiring, and will be replaced by David Kiddoo (photo) effective December 1.
“Due to his strategic direction, technical expertise, collaboration and ability to gain consensus, he guided the top companies in the industry to work together on broad issues affecting the integrity and strength of the structured cabling marketplace,” said CCCA chair Eric Lawrence of Berk-Tek. “We will miss him, and wish him a happy retirement.”
CCCA says Peri guided the development of the organization and its focus on fire safety compliance in communications cabling products and systems by collaborating with industry stakeholders in strengthening certification programs.
As for Peri’s replacement, Lawrence said “we are extremely fortunate to have an experienced and respected colleague fill the executive director position”. Kiddoo comes to the position from AlphaGary Corp., where he served as the global business manager for wire and cable insulation and sheathing products. His wire and cable experience spans over 30 years, and includes positions at DuPont and Ausimont.
Kiddoo served as a member of CCCA’s executive committee, is chair of the Compliance and Anti-Counterfeit Committee, and is active in other CCCA committees. He is also engaged in other organization, such as BICSI and NEMA.
