Veteran SCTE (Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers) executive Marv Nelson, who twice served as interim president-CEO and most recently was senior vice president of strategic initiatives, will leave the organization at the end of the month, the engineering organization announced today.

Nelson, who has been with SCTE for 20 years, was most recently vice president of professional development where he built SCTE's training and certification business and directed all technical education programs. He also developed the organization's training materials.

In a statement, Nelson said that he had "specific goals that have involved transition SCTE to new leadership (and) a new board structure" among other activities. As those wound down, he said, he "gave increasingly greater consideration to taking on new challenges, particularly in entirely different segments of the non-proft sector."
