GERAN elects its new leadership
Andrew Howell, Research In Motion, has been elected as the new Chairman of the 3GPP Technical Specification Group for the GSM EDGE Radio Access Network.

He replaces Jacques Achard, Alcatel Lucent, who steps down after two sucessful years in the role. Mr Howell paid tribute to Jacques Achard:

“It is not going to be easy following Jacques. He has done an excellent job over the last two years and I know his patient style of chairmanship has been appreciated by all. He will be missed. I am pleased to know that, even though he is unable to continue as the chair, he will still be involved with the work of GERAN.”



The appointment brings Andrew Howell back in to the centre of the GERAN stage, as he was the GERAN Chairman from April 2005 to May 2007.
