Spirent Communications tapped former Amdocs executive Eric Updyke as its next CEO, setting him up to take over from departing chief Eric Hutchinson.
Updyke will step into the role on 1 May, coming to the company from a position as group president of Amdocs’ Services division, where he oversaw its managed services, testing and systems integration businesses.
Prior to joining Amdocs in 2010, Updyke also held executive roles at Nokia and AT&T.
Spirent board chairman Bill Thomas said in a statement Updyke brings with him “global experience and deep expertise” in the company’s target markets.
The company’s search for a new head began in November 2018, after Hutchinson announced plans to retire following 36 years as a Spirent employee.
He was appointed CEO in 2013.Subscribe to our daily newsletter Back
