SCTE/ISBE announced Friday that president and CEO Mark Dzuban underwent an "important heart procedure" this week that will prevent him from attending the organization’s Cable-Tec Expo, set to take place next week in Philadelphia.
SCTE/ISBE said it expects Dzuban to be out of the office through much of October, but also expects him to resume many of his SCTE/ISBE duties remotely well before his return.
In the meantime, Chris Bastian, SCTE/ISBE senior vice president and CTO, and Lindsay Johnston, the organization’s senior vice president, operations, will work with the rest of the SCTE/ISBE senior team “to ensure seamless execution on SCTE/ISBE’s mission – implementation of new capabilities that are delivering value by preparing workforces to anticipate, drive and operationalize new technologies," the organization said.
Bastian, Johnston and other industry leaders will also assume Dzuban’s duties at next week’s show, SCTE/ISBE said.
“The Expo train is already moving at full speed, so I’m certain that we’ll achieve our goal of delivering a best-ever event for the industry,” Dzuban said, in a statement. “I also have every confidence that the SCTE/ISBE team we have assembled over the past few years will continue to bring value to our corporate and individual members during my absence. In the meantime, I will be only a few miles – or a phone call – away from SCTE/ISBE headquarters, and will be eagerly anticipating my return to the office.”
