Our New Leadership Team

We recently completed our acquisition of Pace —positioning ARRIS as a global leader in our industry with an unmatched body of talent.

Today, we’d like to welcome the Pace leadership team to our ranks, where we’ll leverage their expertise to bring our vision of the future to new markets.

At the executive level, Bob Stanzione will continue on as Chairman and CEO of ARRIS, along with Dave Potts as EVP and CFO. Larry Margolis will lead integration of the combined organization as EVP of Corporate Strategy & Administration. Larry Robinson and Bruce McClelland will continue to serve as President of their respective business units, which will maintain their current structure: CPE and Network & Cloud and Global Services. Ron Coppock will lead our new, dedicated international sales organization and continue to lead marketing, as President of International Sales and Global Marketing. Tim O’Loughlin from Pace will bring his sales expertise and relationships to his new role as President, North American Sales. Jim Brennan will continue as SVP of Supply Chain and Quality, Patrick Macken as SVP, General Counsel and Secretary, and Vicki Brewster as SVP of Human Resources. Finally, Pace’s Phil Baldock will serve as ARRIS’s new SVP, CIO.

We expect many members of the Pace senior management team to take on leadership positions at ARRIS—a testament to Pace CEO Mike Pulli’s work in creating one of the industry’s leading talent organizations and one that matches ARRIS’s culture of success.

“The people of ARRIS represent the future of our company,” said Bob Stanzione. “Today, we have the industry’s leading talent under one roof. And in the coming months, we’ll begin to leverage the full potential of our combined expertise—broadening our global footprint, tapping into new markets, catalyzing innovation, and transforming entertainment and communications for millions of people around the world.”

Video Interview with ARRIS CEO Bob Stanzione: Pace Acquisition

As you’ve probably heard, ARRIS just acquired Pace.

It’s a big deal. It’s going to transform our industry and affect the way that millions of people watch TV and connect to the Internet and to each other.

We thought the news might leave you with some questions, so we went straight to Bob Stanzione, Chairman and CEO of ARRIS, for answers to the biggest ones on people’s minds.

Check out our video interview with Bob, below, and hear why we acquired Pace, what it means for ARRIS today, and how that’s changing the way our company is preparing for the future.

Another step in the eco-friendly direction

We’ve said it before and it is worth saying it again — when it comes to energy efficiency, less iscea_logo more. As a global leader in products responsible for broadband and TV entertainment delivery into homes everywhere, we also never lose sight of how we can play a significant role in energy conservation.

That’s why we’re thrilled to join forces with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) to improve energy efficiency of small network equipment by 10-20 percent. ARRIS broadband modems, routers and gateways will be core to this commitment.

And this agreement builds into our previously stated focus on minimizing energy use. We’ve long been committed to minimizing our global carbon footprint and energy use through environmentally responsible business operations. And of course, we’ve shown how we factor this way of thinking into our product innovations. Back in 2013, we voluntarily agreed to reduce the energy usage of our set-top devices along with today’s partners – CEA and NCTA – as well as the U.S. Energy Department, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and other industry associations and energy advocates.

Today is yet another step in our commitment to minimize our products’ impact on the environment. And we have no plans to slow down!

ARRIS Mourns The Loss of Ralph Roberts

“Comcast’s founder Ralph Roberts exemplified true leadership and vision throughout his life. He was a pioneer in the cable industry, who built one of America’s greatest companies and brought services that enriched our lives. We send our deepest condolences to the Roberts family. He will be truly missed,” states Bob Stanzione, ARRIS CEO.

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Digital TV

Today is the 25th anniversary of Digital TV. It’s a day we all should celebrate because everything we like about TV—Netflix, TiVo, streaming video, 4K, and more—wouldn’t exist without the invention of digital TV.

Twenty-five years ago, a pioneering team of designers and engineers (in a group that’s now part of ARRIS) proposed the first all-digital TV system to the FCC’s Advisory Committee on Advanced Television Service. This proposal and invention gave way to modern TV.

Every time you stream a movie, record a show, pause live TV, or binge view an entire season’s worth of TV in a day—you’re enjoying the evolution of TV that was made possible by their invention.

Today, ARRIS is celebrating the 25th anniversary of digital TV at our offices in San Diego, where it was invented, with five members of the original design team. They’ll join us for an exciting panel that will review their impact on modern TV and explore its future.

We’re looking forward to hosting our esteemed guests: Dr. Jerry Heller, Dr. Woo Paik, Dr. Paul Moroney, Bob Rast, and Marc Tayer!

ARRIS & Motorola

Today, ARRIS is announcing that as of year’s end, we will no longer be using the MotorolaARRIS_Vertical_4c_CMYK brand on our retail products.

Since our acquisition of Motorola Home two years ago, we’ve anticipated this transition by accelerating our investment in making ARRIS the trusted name and global leader it is today. Now, we’re ready to usher in the next wave of industry innovation under the ARRIS brand.

When we acquired Motorola Home, we inherited a 60-year legacy of award-winning innovation—including the legendary SURFboard® line of products.

The SURFboard is the most widely recognized and most popular retail cable modem —with more than 135 million sold, covering 90% of the market. It’s the retail standard. And it has an impressive history of firsts—including the first wireless broadband gateway, which brought wireless Internet into millions of homes around the world.

That legacy continues today at ARRIS.

As we’ve grown our global brand, we’ve also accelerated our investment in the SURFboard line of products. The result is a new legacy of firsts, including the world’s first 802.11ac cable modem gateway and the world’s first 16×4 channel cable modem, delivering the fastest wired and wireless cable Internet speeds available today.

The world has taken notice. Our commitment to building the fastest, best-performing, and most reliable devices in the world has cemented ARRIS’s relationship with its leading service providers. The ARRIS brand is now in tens of millions of consumer homes, thanks to a variety of innovative new products, numerous awards, word of mouth, and our sponsorship with NASCAR.

When you choose ARRIS and our SURFboard line of products, you’re getting the result of a legacy of innovation and a continued investment in inventing the future.

Thank you for choosing ARRIS!
