The SCTE/ISBE is launching an alumni organization intended to enhance the career success of graduates of the SCTE/ISBE Leadership Institute at Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth.

The SCTE/ISBE-Tuck Alumni Association will provide continued learning and networking opportunities for participants who have successfully completed the SCTE/ISBE-Tuck program. It is open to individuals at all cable telecommunications companies - including service providers and vendors - who satisfactorily completed the SCTE/ISBE-Tuck program. Details on eligibility and activities will be forthcoming following this year's program.

John Hewitt, senior vice president, Broadband Products Group and North America Sales for Alpha Technologies, has been named the first president of the organization. Hewitt will work with the SCTE/ISBE to oversee a board of directors of SCTE/ISBE-Tuck alumni who will lead the shaping and execution of alumni association objectives, including special events at Cable-Tec Expo 2018, which is set for Oct. 22-25 in Atlanta.

"SCTE/ISBE-Tuck is the flagship of our Leadership Institute programs, which have figured prominently in the career successes of more than 600 current and future leaders," said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE/ISBE and executive advisor of the alumni association. "We anticipate that the alumni association will provide a platform for new learning and networking opportunities that will generate additional value for SCTE/ISBE-Tuck graduates and the broadband industry."

Now in its eighth year, the annual SCTE/ISBE-Tuck program is intended for senior directors, vice presidents, senior and executive vice presidents, and C-level executives from across the cable industry. The curriculum offers opportunities for learning and peer interaction for executives representing service providers, technology partners, industry associations, and other organizations. The program leverages the faculty and resources of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, NH.
