The Telecommunications Industry Association has announced that Henry Cuschieri has been promoted from director, Third-Generation Partnership Project 2, to senior director, standards and technology.
In his new position he will continue to report to Dan Bart, senior vice president, standards and special projects.
"In this new position, Henry will still maintain responsibility for overseeing and directing the work and staff of 3GPP2 as he has done so well for the last five years, but he will also assume responsibility for TIA's domestic standards activities and international activities in support of the International Organization for Standardization, International Electrotechnical Commission, ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee-1 and United States National Committee to the IEC," says Bart.
Cuschieri is assuming most of the responsibilities previously directed by Susan Hoyler, who is leaving TIA to take a position with TIA member company, QUALCOMM. Cuschieri's new responsibilities take effect March 1.
"Henry is uniquely qualified to direct both 3GPP2 and TIA's domestic and ISO/IEC activities," says Bart. "His experience includes the U.S. arm of the French National Standards Organization, AFNOR; TIA's primary publisher of TIA standards, Information Handling Services; the Electronic Industries Alliance providing administrative management services to U.S. Technical Advisory Groups to the ISO/IEC and JTC-1 process; and TIA as the director of 3GPP2, supporting the acceleration of the International Telecommunication Union technical work in support of the ITU's IMT-2000 initiative. He is also fluent in three languages."
The TIA is based in Arlington, VA. For more information visit www.tiaonline.org.
