CommScope appoints Laurie Oswald as VP sales for North America


CommScope has promoted Laurie Oswald to
vice president of North American sales for the Enterprise business unit.


Oswald, who will be based in Richardson,
Texas, will be responsible for driving profitable growth for the company by
building upon long-term relationships with customers and channel partners in
the United States and Canada. She replaces Angela Haneklau, who has chosen to
leave CommScope on July 1 after leading the North America Enterprise sales team
for more than seven years.


We thank Angela for her many contributions
to CommScope and wish
her the best in the future. Meanwhile, Laurie’s outstanding track record of
serving customers and her leadership experience make her perfect for this
position. We look forward to having her build on Angela’s success in developing
and growing this vital area of our enterprise market. We believe that Laurie
has the experience and drive to succeed in this new role,” said Peter Karlsson,
senior vice president, Global Sales, CommScope.  


Oswald was promoted from her role as
regional vice president of sales for the northern US, based in the Chicago
area. She and her family soon will be relocating to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.


Since joining the company in 2003, Oswald
served as Chicago territory sales manager, and then moved to the Global
Customer Solutions team as global account manager. Oswald was later promoted to
global client director responsible for financial institutions based in North
America. Prior to joining CommScope, Oswald was a regional sales manager with
Rittal Corporation. She has more than 15 years of experience in enterprise and
carrier markets.


With our well-respected brands such as
SYSTIMAX and Uniprise, CommScope is well-positioned to meet our enterprise
customers’ infrastructure needs today and in the future. I’m looking forward to
leading a great sales and support team, and to expanding my work with top-notch
customers throughout the region,” said Oswald.
