Ex-Bell Labs President Joins Arris Board

Arris has appointed Dr. Jeong Kim to the company’s board of directors, a move that adds a telecom exec who was formerly the president of Bell Labs and the chief strategy officer of Alcatel-Lucent.  

Dr. Kim also served as COO and later president of Lucent’s optical networking group, and was a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Maryland. He also founded and led Yurie Systems, a data networking access technology that he took public and ultimately sold to Lucent Technologies in 1998.

Dr. Kim currently serves on the Board of Schneider Electric, S.A. and Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI).

"Dr. Kim brings to the Board his outstanding experience and leadership in the telecommunications industry from an engineering and strategy point of view as well as keen acumen from a business and operations prospective," said Robert J. Stanzione, Arris chairman and CEO, in a statement. "Dr. Kim's membership adds uniquely to the skill sets of our Board that will help guide ARRIS through these transformative times in the information industry.  We welcome his addition with pride."
