Vogt succeeds Ken Wildgoose, who led the company as its President and then CEO for the last 18 years. Mr. Wildgoose will remain with ATX as an advisor and continue to serve on the Company’s Board of Directors.

Upon joining Harris Broadcast in 2013, Mr. Vogt transformed the company to Imagine Communications and GatesAir and led the media broadcast industry through its most transformative era in more than three decades by evolving SDI/baseband to next-generation software-defined, IP-enabled, virtualized networks. Today, Imagine Communications and GatesAir are recognized as global leaders in the video infrastructure, advertising management and over-the-air markets.

Prior to Imagine Communications, Mr. Vogt was CEO of GENBAND, where he led the company’s transformation from a start-up to the industry’s global leader in voice and video over IP, executing six acquisitions. Under his leadership, GENBAND became no. 1 in VoIP and delivered a compound annual growth rate of ~100 percent during his eight-year tenure.

In September 2012, The Wall Street Journal named GENBAND the no. 1 private equity-backed company in America, topping a list of 5,900 companies. Mr. Vogt’s professional career also included leadership roles at Taqua and Santera Systems (Tekelec), Accelerated Networks (Calix Networks), Lucent (Alcatel), Ascend Communications (Lucent), ADTRAN, Motorola and IBM.
