“This is a pivotal time for the company and the industries we serve. I am thrilled to be part of an organization with the vision and determination to help our customers transition their networks for next-generation services,” commented Vecima's McCreery.

Colin Howlett has been appointed as Vecima's chief technology officer and will lead the company's newly created office of the CTO.

His technical expertise spans a wide breadth, including wireless, wireline, RF, and software engineering.

“Throughout my previous roles at Vecima, the aspect I’ve enjoyed most is partnering with the customers we serve to develop unique and compelling solutions to their technical challenges,” said Howlett. “I look forward to leading a team of world-class technology experts and industry thought leaders as we expand our reach.”

Kyle Goodwin has been promoted to SVP and general manager of Vecima's Content Delivery & Storage business unit. Goodwin previously led Concurrent Technology’s research and development portfolio of products through a time of transition in the service provider industry.

Prior to joining Concurrent, he spent time in the telecommunications, financial technology, and insurance industries with Motorola, PrimeRevenue, S1 Corporation, and Aflac. Goodwin is also a steering board member of the DVB Project, an industry-led consortium defining the global standard for digital television.

Ryan Nicometo has been promoted to SVP and general manager of the Video & Broadband Solutions business unit at Vecima. Nicometo, who also joined Vecima from the acquisition of Concurrent Technology, brings 21 years of experience in the service provider space to his role.

While at Motorola and ARRIS, he helped integrate technology and talent from several acquisitions across roles in sales and product management.
