WICT CEO Joins Vyyo Board


 Vyyo announced that Benita Fitzgerald Mosley, president and CEO of Women in Cable Telecommunications, has joined the company’s board of directors after former Morgan Stanley cable analyst Rich Bilotti stepped down as a director.

The company said Bilotti resigned from the Vyyo board effective Sept. 24 to because of “increased demands for his time” as a managing director with investment firm GSO Capital Partners. Bilotti joined Vyyo’s board in April

Before joining WICT, Fitzgerald Mosley, a 1984 Olympic gold medalist in the 100-meter hurdles, worked for the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) in various roles from 1995 to 2001. Prior to that she spent six years working for U.S. defense contractors designing software and hardware systems. She holds a degree from the University of Tennessee in industrial engineering.

“I’ve been impressed by the technical capabilities and cost efficiencies of the Vyyo UltraBand platform, and look forward to working with Vyyo to accelerate adoption of the solution across the industry,” Fitzgerald Mosley said, in a prepared statement.

Vyyo founder and chairman Davidi Gilo, commenting on her appointment, said in a statement: “Throughout her career, Benita Fitzgerald Mosley has earned a reputation for establishing and achieving high goals for herself and the organizations with which she has worked. Her engineering background, her cable expertise and her leadership skills will be invaluable in helping to shape the growth of our company.”

In March Vyyo appointed Jim Chiddix, formerly chief technology officer of Time Warner Cable, to its board.
