TCCA's Tony Gray to retire, new CEO sought

The Critical Communications Association (TCCA) has announced that its current Chief Executive, Tony Gray, is looking to retire in 2021, so the search is now on for a successor who can continue to drive the association forward.

TCCA celebrated its 25th year in 2020 with a growing membership, new and ongoing involvement in many key projects across the sector, and the successful Critical Communications Week virtual event.

The association’s ongoing initiatives include supporting the ETSI MCX Plugtests; managing the TETRA Interoperability Certification Process (IOP); mission-critical device certification work with the Global Certification Forum; and working with ETSI to maintain and enhance the TETRA standard.

TCCA is the 3GPP Market Representation Partner for critical communications, bringing a consensus view of market requirements for standardised critical communications. It also provides technical and marketing support to the NIST-funded MCS-TaaSting project.

“The new CEO needs an in-depth knowledge of critical communications in order to properly represent the interests of all our members from around the world, to collaborate with our partners, oversee our programs, and maintain and enhance our public profile,” said Mladen Vratonjić, Chair of TCCA’s board.

“We have achieved a great deal under Tony’s leadership, and we look forward to the new CEO building on this and further strengthening the association and the sector, to the benefit of all our members.”

Applications close in January 2021. Further information and how to apply can be found here.
