Leadership Update

The Telecom Infra Project (TIP)’s chairman, Dr. Alex Choi, is moving on from his current CTO position with SK Telecom and thus stepping down from his role at TIP. Please join me in thanking him for the time and leadership he invested in TIP since its inception.  Dr. Choi has played a critical role in the development of the organization as our first chairman. His achievements include increasing our membership to over 450 of the world’s top carriers, vendors and integrators in just over a year. Dr. Choi also oversaw the ongoing expansion of our project groups.

Given this change, we are extremely fortunate that Dr. Choi’s fellow board member,Axel Clauberg of Deutsche Telekom, will take over as the interim chairman. Axel has already made incredible contributions to TIP, and is continuing to work closely with Dr. Choi to ensure a seamless handoff.

Please join me in thanking Dr. Choi for his tremendous efforts and in wishing him the greatest success in his next endeavor. I look forward to Dr. Choi working with TIP again in the near future.
