CommScope has eliminated the COO position less than six months after appointing former Arris CEO Bruce McClelland in the slot.
McClelland has been quickly removed, his responsibilities dispersed to CommScope CEO Eddie Edwards and other members of the management team, as each of the acquired Arris business sectors continued to struggle in the second quarter.
“In his leadership role, Bruce has made numerous contributions to Arris through the years,” said Eddie Edwards, president and chief executive officer, CommScope, in a brief statement announcing McClelland’s departure.
“Looking ahead, the new CommScope is well positioned and ready to shape the future of communications connectivity. We remain confident in the long-term growth potential for CommScope and our ability to help solve our customers’ networking and connectivity challenges better than ever before.”
