Following an SCTE board meeting Monday on the eve of its annual Cable-Tec Expo trade show in Denver, the group announced the re-upping of the Suddenlik executive VP and chief technology officer, as well as a number of board and executive committee appointments.

Added to the group's executive committee: Tony Werner, executive VP and CTO for Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) has been named vice chairman; Christine Whitaker, group VP and chief learning officer for Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) has been appointed treasurer; and Nick Segura, manager of network engineering for Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) has been tapped as secretary.

During the meeting, the SCTE also selected Bill Warga, VP of technology for Liberty Global to replace Mike LaJoie on its board. (LaJoie serves as executive VP and CTO of Time Warner Cable.)

"The SCTE board of directors' commitment and guidance are reflected in the creation of our corporate alliance and Energy 2020 programs, our new international presence and a surge in activity at the chapter level," said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE. "I'd like to thank Mike LaJoie and our outgoing secretary, Jim Hughes, for their tireless support, and to welcome Bill Warga to the board. I look forward to working with Terry Cordova, the rest of the executive committee and the entire board of directors as we expand the size and scope of our contributions to the industry in the year ahead."
