Small Cell Forum appoints Sue Monahan as CEO

The Small Cell Forum, the independent industry and operator association that supports small cell deployment worldwide has today appointed Sue Monahan as its CEO.

Sue Mohan who is also director for GSMA North America brings over 20 years of experience in telecom and will support the Forum’s existing Chairman and regional vice-Chairs in its day to day management.

Sue joins the Forum having held numerous senior roles at firms including AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Telcordia, as well as over 10 years as director for GSMA North America; a position she will continue in alongside her new function at the Small Cell Forum.

As CEO, Sue will be responsible for carrier engagement and recruitment and interactions with partner organizations. She will also take on management and senior level interactions with the Forum’s many working and technical groups, helping guide the Small Cell Forum as it continues to deliver its Release Program which provides operators with the information they need to deploy small cells.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Sue to the Small Cell Forum,” said Gordon Mansfield, chairman, Small Cell Forum.

“The relationships she has cultivated in her work over the years with organizations such as the GSMA and 4G Americas will be a huge boost for the Forum. I look forward to working closely with Sue as we continue to support the mobile industry as it deploys greater and greater numbers of small cells,” added Mansfield.

“In the past year we have seen small cell deployments continue apace, changing the very shape of mobile networks far beyond anything we could have hoped for even five years ago,” said Sue Monahan, CEO, Small Cell Forum.

“The role that the Small Cell Forum has played in the success of the industry cannot be overstated. I’m truly honored to have joined the Forum and I am excited to help build on an already excellent track record,” added Monahan.

The Small Cell Forum is currently working on Release Four of its Release Program, on schedule for publication in June at Small Cells World Summit in London. This will provide additional technical and business detail for the urban small cell use case initially covered in Release Three, which was launched in February.
