“Since its formation, Arris has grown from a small joint venture to a global leader in entertainment and communications technology,” said Bob Stanzione. ”
With integration efforts from the Pace acquisition substantially complete, now is the right time to transition the role of CEO to a new leader who will continue Arris’s growth and success. Bruce has played an integral role in transforming the Company since he joined the Arris Interactive Joint Venture more than 16 years ago. He will provide leadership and strategic vision to keep Arris and our customers ahead of today’s rapid pace of change and will ensure we remain at the forefront of tomorrow’s connected world.”
McClelland has been with Arris since 1999, joining as vice president of engineering, and leading product development of the company’s voice and broadband products. He went on to hold a number of roles within the company, most recently President, Network and Cloud and Global Services, where he has been responsible for overseeing the development and delivery of a diverse portfolio of broadband and video network infrastructure products and cloud-based software solutions.”
“It is often said that a company takes on the personality of the CEO, and Arris is a perfect example of this adage. Bob Stanzione’s relentless focus on ‘Customer First’ has become the motto for the company,” said McClelland.
“His belief in the people of Arris and his tireless drive to innovate and to exceed customer expectation has led Arris to where it is today. I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead the Arris team at this exciting time in our history, and I look forward to continuing this tradition of commitment.”
Stanzione will remain with Arris on a full-time basis as executive chairman.
