Ronan Kelly is the new president of the FTTH Council Europe. Members of the FTTH Council Europe met at the General Assembly in Amsterdam on 19 and 20 April.
The FTTH Council Europe Board of Directors has appointed Ronan Kelly as new President and set out the work plan for the coming year, including a special focus on operators. Ronan Kelly has been appointed as the new President of the FTTH Council Europe, becoming the eighth person to hold this position since the organisation was founded in 2005. He replaces outgoing President Edgar Aker, who occupied this position for the past year and came to the end of his term. In addition to his new position as President of the FTTH Council Europe, Ronan Kelly is CTO, EMEA & APAC Regions at ADTRAN.
“It is a great honour to have been chosen as the new President of the FTTH Council Europe. A lot has happened in the past year during Edgar Aker’s presidency” commented Ronan Kelly. “The FTTH market has matured and European decision-makers have shown a more “business-friendly” approach to broadband policies. In continuity with last year’s strategy and working plan, we need to ensure that the call for accelerated fibre deployment is heard by all the broadband stakeholders who can make a change in Europe, with a special focus on operators for the year 2016!”
