Arris Taps Dan Whalen to Head Network and Cloud Unit

Arris International has promoted industry vet Dan Whalen to president of its Network & Cloud division, which makes and sells broadband and video infrastructure and software products.

He assumes the role previously held by Bruce McClelland, who succeeded Robert Stanzione as CEO effective Sept. 1.

Whalen, who reports to McClelland, previously served as Arris’s SVP and GM of global services. He is also late of Cisco Systems, KPMG and Bell Atlantic.

In Q3, revenues at the Network and Cloud unit had a small decline amid the transition to second-gen linecards for the E6000, the company’s flagship converged cable access platform (CCAP), but that was largely offset by a record quarter for Arris’s access technologies business.

"His proven track record of success, breadth of customer leadership, and strategic insights provide an excellent foundation for helping our Network and Cloud business achieve the next era of growth."

"ARRIS is at the forefront of the technologies driving tomorrow's advanced entertainment and communication services for millions of subscribers worldwide," added Whalen. "I am honored to continue collaborating closely with our global base of customers, to deliver the next generation of broadband, video and mobile services and applications."
