Former Vodafone CTO to chair BAI

Communications infrastructure provider BAI Communications (BAI) has announced the appointment of former Vodafone chief technology officer Steve Pusey as chair of the board.

Pusey brings more than three decades of experience in telecommunications to the role including nine years as CTO at Vodafone, EMEA president at Nortel Networks and five years at British Telecom.

Pusey will assume the position of chair from the end of March, taking over from non-executive director Bart Vogel who has been serving as interim chair since January.

BAI chief executive Igor Leprince said the group was “extremely proud and fortunate” to have “one of the most accomplished people in the industry” join as chair.

In his new role, Pusey has been tasked with providing “strategic leadership and advisory input as it continues its upward trajectory and expands its global footprint”. In December last year, BAI acquired Irish 4G and 5G network specialist Vilicom to “accelerate its growth of wireless networks across Europe”.

The deal marked the latest expansion into the UK and Irish telecoms market over the past 12 months for BAI having been awarded a 20-year contract by Transport for London to deliver uninterrupted 4G coverage across all London Underground stations and tunnels as well as agreeing a 20-year strategic partnership with Sunderland City Council to “create the UK’s most advanced smart city”.
