Harmonic names new president/CEO

The Board of Directors at Harmonic has appointed Dr. Patrick Harshman as its new president and chief executive officer. Harshman has also been elected to a position on the Board.

Harshman, 41, succeeds Anthony Ley, 67, who has led Harmonic for 18 years. Ley is retiring from active, full-time service with the company, but will continue as the non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Joining Harmonic in 1993, Harshman has held key leadership positions in marketing, international sales, and research and development. In December 2005, he was appointed executive vice president responsible for the majority of the company's operational functions, including the unified digital video and broadband optical networking divisions as well as global manufacturing.

Prior to the consolidation of the company's product divisions, Harshman held the position of president of the Convergent Systems division and, for more than four years, was president of the Broadband Access Networks division.
