SAN RAMON, Calif. -- In a unanimous decision by the Board of Directors, MoCA has appointed Charles (Charlie) Cerino as its first full-time, paid president. The growth of the market worldwide, ongoing technology development and enhancement, and the overall progress and evolution of the Alliance required a full time president.
Charlie has been president of the Alliance since 2007 while also serving as Board representative for Comcast. Charlie will no longer represent Comcast on the Board but will continue to sit on the Board as an independent representative unaffiliated with any company. There will not be a material change to his duties as he will continue to promote the technology among operators worldwide, serve as spokesman, engage current members, recruit new members and generally manage the Alliance on a day-to-day basis.
“The Board realized that the organization required the attention of an actively engaged president and that the best person for the job was already in place,” said William Beals, MoCA Vice President.
A cable industry veteran of more than 40 years, Mr. Cerino retired as Vice President of Comcast Center Technology.
“I am honored by the Board’s decision and look forward to interacting with our members and operators as we continue to evolve the technology and set our sights higher and faster worldwide,” said Charles Cerino.
