Westell Announces Leadership Change

Westell Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance wireless infrastructure solutions, announced that, effective November 30, 2017, Kirk R. Brannock, Chairman of the Board of Directors, has been appointed interim President and CEO, replacing Matthew B. Brady, who resigned to pursue other opportunities.  The Board intends to conduct a search for a permanent CEO.

Brannock served as Westell’s interim President and Chief Executive Officer from October 2016 through July 2017, and was instrumental in rationalizing the Company’s expense structure and positioning Westell for future success in the in-building wireless Public Safety market and the emerging wireless deployment of Centralized Radio Access Networks (CRAN).  In addition, Brannock served as a member of Westell’s Board of Directors from February 2011 to September 2014, and was appointed Westell’s Chairman of the Board in September 2017, a position he will retain.

“We want to thank Matt for his service as President and CEO and we wish him the best in his new endeavors,” Brannock said. “Moving forward, management and the Board will continue providing competitive solutions for our customers as well as exploring all options to improve shareholder value.”
