Tarana Announces Appointment of Hubert de Pesquidoux to Board of Directors

MILPITAS, CA — September 28, 2021 — Tarana announced today the addition of Hubert de Pesquidoux to its board of directors.

Currently an executive partner at the private equity firm Siris Capital and Executive Chairman of the Board of Mavenir, Mr. Pesquidoux brings a wealth of experience at global scale across multiple telecommunications segments to Tarana’s board.  His prior roles include CFO of Alcatel-Lucent, President and CEO of Alcatel North America, and senior board positions at Tekelec, Radisys, and Sequans.

Mr. Pesquidoux commented, “Breakthrough companies like Tarana are uncommon in part because of the material time, effort, and deep skills required to re-think and fully address challenging problems from first principles, as they’ve done.  The market entry timing of Tarana’s G1 platform couldn’t be better, and their rapid growth out of the gate this year proves they’ve introduced a compelling solution.  The large reductions in cost and time to ramp service it enables will make Tarana’s platform an essential tool in the global quest to close the digital divide.”

Basil Alwan, CEO and Executive Chairman of Tarana, added, “We are pleased to welcome Hubert to our team as we evolve Tarana from a breakthrough technology effort into a quickly-growing company with significant impact across the broadband market.  Hubert’s operational and financial expertise in Tarana’s core segments along with his strong international credentials will be highly valuable as we scale our business globally.”
