Charles “Chuck” Treadway
Network infrastructure provider CommScope said that its CEO of 15 years, Eddie Edwards, stepped down and was succeeded by Charles “Chuck” Treadway.
Treadway, who is now CEO, president and member of CommScope’s board, most recently served as CEO of Accudyne Industries, a provider of industrial compressors, which was a portfolio company of BC Partners and current CommScope investor The Carlyle Group. Treadway also served as president and CEO of Thomas & Betts Corp., CEO of Custom Sensors and Technologies, president of Yale Security, and held various positions at Schneider Electric for more than nine years.
CommScope also said that Frank Drendel had been named chairman emeritus. Drendel founded CommScope in 1976 and has served continuously as its CEO and at times, chairman of the board since its start. Bud Watts, most recently CommScope‘s lead independent director of the board, is replacing Drendel as chairman of the board.
