Denver - Jul 9, 2013 - Harris Broadcast, a portfolio company of The Gores Group, has appointed Charlie Vogt as CEO. The 25-year information technology and communications leader joins Harris Broadcast following nine years as president and CEO of Genband where he led a company transformation that encompassed six acquisitions, including Tekelec SSG, NextPoint Networks and Nortel's VoIP business. Vogt succeeds Harris Morris, who was appointed president of Harris Broadcast when it was a subsidiary of Harris Corporation in 2010, led the company through its divestiture process and guided the transition period to The Gores Group ownership, including the completion of fiscal year 2013.

Prior to his tenure as president and CEO of Genband, Vogt served as president and CEO of Taqua, an IP switching company, which was acquired by Tekelec in 2004. Before Taqua, Vogt was instrumental in the operational and financial growth of four standard-setting technology companies including Adtran, Ascend Communications, Accelerated Networks and Santera Systems.
