Norway's Nina Myren joins TCCA board

Following elections held at its AGM conducted during Critical Communications World in Kuala Lumpur in June, the TCCA has a new board member — Nina Myren, Senior Adviser, Strategy, at the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) within the country’s Department of Emergency Communications.

Myren takes the place of Dr Barbara Held, Head of Directorate – General Strategy and Central Management at the German Federal Agency for Public Safety Digital Radio (BDBOS), who has stepped down after six years on TCCA’s board. Held also latterly served as vice-chair.

“We are sorry to lose Barbara, who has made tremendous contributions to TCCA, not least helping to lead the transformation of the Critical Communications World conference program and catalysing the creation of the International Governmental Operator Forum. We wish her all the best for the future, and she leaves with our great appreciation and thanks,” said Mladen Vratonjić, TCCA Board Chair.

“Nina brings a new critical communications operator perspective to the board, and we look forward to learning from her experiences and involvement in the development and introduction of Nødnett, the country-wide critical communications network in Norway.”

Myren has held positions both within the telecommunications industry and within the Norwegian public safety radio network operator. She brings experience and knowledge of mission-critical communications, including technical, political and social aspects.

Her current role in DSB involves ensuring emergency preparedness through secure and robust public safety communication and forward-looking technological solutions.

At the TCCA elections, Vratonjić was voted unopposed to serve a second two-year term as the board chair, while Ali Helenius (Airbus) and Jeppe Jepsen (Motorola Solutions) were re-elected to serve a further two years on the board and Steve Whatson (UK Home Office) was formally elected after being co-opted last year.

The other board members are Tero Pesonen (Erillisverkot), Francesco Pasquali (Leonardo), Philippe Agard (Nokia) and Jason Johur (Ericsson). Jepsen and Pesonen will share the role of vice-chair.
