BAI appoints Michael Tessler to board

Communications infrastructure provider BAI Communications has announced the appointment of Michael Tessler as a non-executive director.

Tessler has a background in the cloud communications space, stemming from his role as CEO at BroadSoft, which he helped scale from start-up to multinational industry leader across 80+ countries prior to its acquisition by Cisco.

Based in Austin, Texas, United States, Tessler also holds advisory positions with a number of technology companies in conjunction with his work as a Managing Partner at True North Advisory.

As non-executive director, Tessler will join the BAI board to assist the business in progressing the company’s expansion strategy, supported by its majority shareholder, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, as it works to scale its solutions and operations, particularly within the North American and European markets.

“BAI is an exciting business and it is an honour to have the opportunity to join the board and contribute to the company’s future success,” Tessler said.

“The energy within the business reflects the fast development that we are seeing in the 5G space. BAI’s strategy puts it in a position to capitalise on the major growth trend that is emerging around neutral host and private network solutions, at both a municipality and private enterprise level.”

BAI Chair Joan Gillman said, “Welcoming Mike to the BAI Board of Directors is the perfect start to what will be an important year for the BAI business. His knowledge of the wireless industry and proven experience in delivering growth across technology and telecommunications businesses will add a highly valuable perspective and strategic insight to our board and business.”
