ADTRAN Executive Named To CompTIA’s Telecom Advisory Council

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced that Meggin Sawyer, regional vice president of service provider networks for ADTRAN, has been selected to join the CompTIA Telecom Advisory Council (TAC). The recently established council was formed to provide insight and guidance for the ever-growing and evolving relationship between IT firms and channel resellers—a space where ADTRAN continues to excel.

By joining the CompTIA TAC, Sawyer will use her vast industry experience and knowledge to help the council’s mission of unifying telecom agents and business partner channels. With the overall goal of connecting these two groups with their associated business models together, Sawyer and the council will work to understand and address the challenges facing these channels in the marketplace.

“As enterprise customers come to expect cloud services from their traditional network and equipment providers, it presents a unique opportunity for both groups to build and deliver new solutions and services these customers want and need,” said Sawyer. “I look forward to working with both groups to help bridge the gap between these provider’s business practices to enable them to support the Enterprise’s evolving needs.”

“Telecom agents and their IT partners are working closer together than ever, yet they often struggle to define their respective roles in a converged channel,” said Annette Taber, vice president, channel strategies, CompTIA. “The CompTIA Telecom Advisory Council was created to help identify challenges in the telecom agent-VAR relationship and develop strategies to address them. We’re pleased that Meggin Sawyer has joined the council and look forward to the expertise, insights and perspectives she will share.”

The Telecom Advisory Council is the third industry group established by CompTIA. The first meeting at the CompTIA Annual Member Meeting was March 12-13 in Chicago.
