Cindy Christy, the president of Alcatel-Lucent's Americas Region, has become the latest executive of the Paris-based company to depart the firm. However, she is leaving for personal reasons and not business-related reasons, according to a story at Light Reading. Alcatel-Lucent recently hired a new CEO and a new chairman, after the former CEO and chairman both stepped down after many quarters of poor financial performance. But Christy may have intended to leave even before these events, LR suggests.
Christy has been with the company for about 20 years, since when it was still known as AT&T Network Systems, long before it became Lucent Technologies and eventually merged with Alcatel. She filled several executive roles in recent years, including president of Lucent's Mobility Solutions Group at a time when the wireless business was exploding with opportunity for network equipment vendors.
