Bob Acheson Named SCTE ‘Member Of The Year’

Bob Acheson, a sales and marketing exec with San Bruno Cable TV of Sunnyvale, Calif., was named the SCTE “Member of the Year” Tuesday during Cable-Tec Expo’s annual awards luncheon.

Acheson, honored as the SCTE member who made the most significant contributions to the Society over the past year, was recognized for organizing and directing SCTE Vendor Days and community outreach events, publishing chapter newsletters, and for providing mentoring to less seasoned industry professionals.

Acheson, an SCTE member since 1995, was surprised by receiving the honor. “Those of you who know me know that I am rarely at a loss for words. But I certainly am today.”

SCTE also named three to its Hall of Fame: J. Richard “Dick” Beard, director of global engineering with Ervin Cable; John T. Kurpinski Sr., vice president of Tarpon Communications; and Leslie W. Read, owner of Read Broadband Services.

Also recognized at Tuesday’s luncheon was Sherita Ceasar, vice president, national video deployment engineering at Comcast Cable, who received the annual Women In Technology Award, which is sponsored by Bright House Networks and presented jointly by the SCTE, Women In Cable Telecommunications and Cablefax.
