CEO Verwaayen to Step Down at Alcatel-Lucent

Craig Matsumoto

Barack Obama might not be a one-termer, but Ben Verwaayen is. Alcatel-Lucent's board voted Wednesday to accept Verwaayen's decision to step down as CEO, French paper Le Monde reported late Wednesday night, Paris time. (Here's an English rendition, published by Reuters.) He may hand over to his successor at the vendor's annual shareholders' meeting on May 7. Verwaayen became CEO of AlcaLu on Sept. 15, 2008. Light Reading will publish more on this story as it develops. Meanwhile, catch up on AlcaLu's recent ups and downs (mostly downs):

Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
