STL announced the appointment of Paul Atkinson as the chief executive officer for its optical networking business.
Before STL, Paul Atkinson was the Managing Director and Group CEO at IXOM, Australia. Prior to IXOM, Paul was associated with the Prysmian for over 20 years as the CEO of affiliates and regions across the world.
Paul takes over this responsibility from Ankit Agarwal, who has played a crucial role in STL’s expansion in the optical business. Ankit widened the portfolio with the acquisition of Optotec & Metallurgica Bresciana and increased STL’s presence in Italy, UK, US, Brazil and China.
As a Whole-Time Director on the board, Ankit will now focus on driving the strategy and growth across STL.
