Secretary -

  

My career in CATV began in 1998.  I am a partner at Giganet Sales and The ECAM Group where I have local and corporate MSO responsibilities as a Manufacturer’s Representative. 

I have been an active member of the SCTE since 2002. I began volunteering for the Chattahoochee Chapter as a friend of the Board in 2007 at their first annual Cable-Tec Games.  In 2009, I was elected to the Chattahoochee Chapter Board and have enjoyed serving for the past 10 years. 

I believe the SCTE plays an important role in career development for all of us in this ever-evolving industry.  It is my goal as a Chattahoochee Chapter board member to strive to present topics that are both interesting and relevant to our membership.

Board Member -

  

In 1991, Sadie joined the cable industry working with Turner Broadcasting Systems. Following the time with Turner, she worked for a small operator and as a programmer in network affiliate sales. 

Her most relevant experience will be the almost 19 years working at ARRIS. When she began at what was then known as ANTEC, it was a small company with big plans. She presently supports the Cox Corporate Account for ARRIS and is primarily focused on Networking, Access, Video and Professional Services components of the ARRIS portfolio.

“I have been fortunate enough to be a part of the company’s great growth and the delivery of quality products that meet our customer’s needs. It has been a great experience to be growing along with our industry.”

While at ARRIS, she has represented the company’s extensive product portfolio to customers across, the southeast and mid-Atlantic. Previously, she garnered SCTE Board experience serving the Piedmont Chapter in the Carolinas and with the Louisiana chapter. 

In addition to the SCTE, she is a member of Women in Cable Telecommunications. She believes there are unique opportunities for WICT and SCTE to work together to encourage more women to enter the technical side of our business. 

Sadie’s goal is to support the Chattahoochee chapter in meeting the needs of our membership -- their professional growth, personal development and networking.
