Genband has separated itself into two divisions and the Network Transformation business, the latter of which sees Steven Bruny appointed as its chief operating officer

In his new role, Bruny will oversee product line management, R&D, operations and support, and training with the network transformation business, which “delivers a comprehensive set of solutions to global operators including fixed, mobile, MSO and interconnect/wholesale providers, enabling them to evolve their legacy networks and transform them to an agile, efficient software-defined infrastructure with high performance virtual network functions (VNF) and management offerings for NFV/SDN”.

“We’re here to help our customers succeed in today’s demanding and dynamic market. We introduced our “Protect What You Have and Invest in the Future’ strategy in order to best align our business and leverage our tremendous people and technology assets,” said David Walsh, chairman and CEO of Genband.

“With Steven in place to help lead the Network Transformation side of the business, I’m more confident than ever that our customers will benefit from his focus and experience. I look forward to his ongoing contributions.”

Bruny joined Genband in 2012 with the acquisition of Aztek Networks, where he was CEO. Since then he has served as senior vice president, major accounts and executive vice president, solutions delivery and support, leading the re-engineering and ongoing optimisation of these critical customer-facing activities.
