The SCTE Foundation announced that Mark Dzuban—the president/CEO of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE)—and Tony Werner (executive vice-president and CTO of Comcast Cable), are new members of the SCTE Foundation board of directors.

The
SCTE board designated Dzuban a member of the SCTE Foundation board by
virtue of his position as SCTE president/CEO. The Foundation Board then
elected Dzuban to the office of Foundation vice-president. Dzuban began
as president/CEO back in February 2. Prior to his arrival, Marv Nelson
filled the president/CEO role on an interim basis and, by extension,
served on the SCTE Foundation Board, which had voted him as its
vice-president.




Werner
is responsible for developing and guiding Comcast’s technology strategy
and evolving network architecture, including supporting next-generation
consumer systems and technologies, infrastructure and engineering,
network integration and management tools, and technical standards.




He has
more than 25 years of engineering and technical management experience,
having held senior management positions with Qwest Communications,
Aurora Networks, TeleCommunications Inc. (TCI)/AT&T Broadband,
Rogers Communications Inc., and RCA Cablevision Systems.




The SCTE
Foundation, meantime, received a $50,000 grant from the Motorola
Foundation. The grant strengthens the Foundation’s ability to carry out
its mission, is says, which includes helping SCTE members continue
their education and development through grants and scholarships.




“The
Motorola Foundation actively supports initiatives that encourage career
progression and innovation in communities where we live and work around
the world,” said Eileen Sweeney, director, Motorola Foundation. “As the
cable industry grows, we recognize the importance of supporting
organizations such as the SCTE Foundation that provide resources to
increase career development and opportunities for individuals in the
industry.”
