John Cox retires as CEO of the TETRA Association
The TETRA Association says farewell to one of the most experienced individuals in the business as John Cox retires as CEO.
John joined the Association in 2000 as Secretary, becoming CEO in 2002. He has become an internationally recognised figure in the TETRA community, and through the creation and management of a comprehensive global events programme, has raised the profile of the technology around the world.
John began his career in mobile radio at Pye in 1964, which later became part of the Philips group, leaving to take the helm at the Mobile Radio Users’ Association (MRUA) in 1989. He returned to Philips in 1995 to take on the challenge of marketing the TETRA standard, and was one of the original team that produced the roadshows designed to educate a variety of potential users about the benefits of TETRA. John chaired all the events, the first of which in London in 1994 saw the signing of the first MoU.
John’s 40-plus years of experience have benefited the Association in countless ways, and his diplomacy and administrative skills have ensured the Association has flourished and maintained a healthy financial position during periods of considerable challenge and change.
On behalf of everyone associated with the TETRA industry, we thank John for his invaluable contribution to the success of the TETRA standard, and wish him a long, happy and fulfilling retirement.
