"We're grateful to Tony Werner for providing the guidance and support that have helped SCTE/ISBE adapt to changes in the industry environment," said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of the SCTE/ISBE. "We look forward to working with Bill Warga as we continue to build domestic and international partnerships that can deliver business value to our operator, technology partner and individual members."
