AlcaLu CEO Rumor Reprise
The report comes a day after outgoing chairman Serge Tchuruk told French newspaper Le Figaro that he expected the new chairman and CEO to be appointed "very quickly."
Quigley left AlcaLu a year ago to return to his home in Australia. When he left the company, his role was president of science, technology, and strategy, but before the merger with Lucent he was president and COO of Alcatel. (See Où Est Mike Quigley? and Quigley, D'Amelio out at AlcaLu.)
Light Reading finds that his name is almost always mentioned by Alcatel people in the context of CEO candidates. But we think it's unlikely that he'll step back into the fray.
