Board of Directors

ATIS is led by a dynamic Board of Directors composed of CTOs and other senior-level executives representing all facets of the global ICT industry.

Composed exclusively of executive-level leaders from the top ICT companies, the ATIS Board is the most senior of all governing bodies of its type in the industry. This distinction brings to the agenda a business-driven approach and commercial rigor that only a “view from the top” can deliver.

This diverse group of high-caliber leaders understands the industry’s most pressing business and technical challenges, enabling them to actively set ATIS’ strategic, technical and operational direction. Their vision and first-hand knowledge of the issues drives ATIS’ priorities for creating best-in-class standards and solutions.

The ATIS Board provides insight into the future of ICT by bringing together the industry’s top minds to interact in a variety of forums, such as the Technology and Operations (TOPS) Council.
