October 30, 2013

Marking a further milestone during a period of dynamic growth, Microlease, the leading global test equipment management organization, has announced the appointment of Michael E. Clark as its new chief executive officer for the Americas.

Clark joins Microlease from Airvana, a leading supplier of wireless broadband solutions, where he was Airvana LP’s senior executive and General Manager. Prior to Airvana, Clark spent 22 years in the test & measurement industry, serving in various senior management roles at JDS Uniphase, Agilent Technologies, Acterna, Wandel & Goltermann, and Hewlett Packard. Clark has extensive experience in multiple communications markets including wireless and wireline service providers, network equipment manufacturers, and major enterprises across the world.

“Mike’s extensive leadership experience in a broad range of senior sales, marketing, business development and general management roles makes him ideally suited to take on the role of Chief Executive Officer for the Americas with Microlease,” says Nigel Brown, CEO of the global Microlease Group. “I am confident he will be an excellent addition to the senior management team as we continue to expand our presence in the Americas.”   

Clark’s appointment to the Americas comes at the same time Microlease announces two other additions to the global senior management team. Rob Gershon joins as the Chief Operating Officer for Europe and Peter Spillman becomes the Inventory Planning Director.
