The past year validated our 2014 small cell movers and shakers list in a lot of ways, but it also saw several executives leave the small cell market, by choice or otherwise.

Small Cell Leaders: Where Are they Now?

2015 is gearing up to be a big one for small cells: Operators are ready to move beyond the macro network, long-awaited vendor deployment announcements will begin to trickle out and voice-over LTE will mean more small cell action for the enterprise market. (See LTE Small Cells Set to Be Big in 2015.)

With so much going on, 2014 has seen its fair share of changes in plans, timelines and executive roles. This time last year, Light Reading listed its top six Small Cells Movers & Shakers, and identified a handful of others to watch in the space. We called a lot of them right, but -- at the same time -- we also saw a number leave the industry, either by choice or not. (See Top 6 Small Cells Movers & Shakers.)

For more on small cells, head over to the small cell content page on Light Reading.

As such, we're updating our coverage of the small cells movers and shakers list with a "Where Are They Now?" edition -- see our new Prime Reading feature, Small Cell Movers & Shakers: Update.

As always, we welcome your feedback in the comments section below. Any movers and shakers you want us to keep an eye on in 2015? Any companies you think will lead the market in small cells or, conversely, bow out? Let us know.

About the Author(s)

Sarah Thomas

Director, Women in Comms

Sarah Thomas's love affair with communications began in 2003 when she bought her first cellphone, a pink RAZR, which she duly "bedazzled" with the help of superglue and her dad.

She joined the editorial staff at Light Reading in 2010 and has been covering mobile technologies ever since. Sarah got her start covering telecom in 2007 at Telephony, later Connected Planet, may it rest in peace. Her non-telecom work experience includes a brief foray into public relations at Fleishman-Hillard (her cussin' upset the clients) and a hodge-podge of internships, including spells at Ingram's (Kansas City's business magazine), American Spa magazine (where she was Chief Hot-Tub Correspondent), and the tweens' quiz bible, QuizFest, in NYC.

As Editorial Operations Director, a role she took on in January 2015, Sarah is responsible for the day-to-day management of the non-news content elements on Light Reading.

Sarah received her Bachelor's in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia. She lives in Chicago with her 3DTV, her iPad and a drawer full of smartphone cords.

Away from the world of telecom journalism, Sarah likes to dabble in monster truck racing, becoming part of Team Bigfoot in 2009.
