Kevin Graham to take over from 1 January 2022 following retirement of Tony Gray.

The Board of TCCA is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Graham as the association’s new CEO. Kevin will join TCCA for a three month transition period commencing 1 October and work together with current Chief Executive Tony Gray to ensure a thorough and seamless handover. Gray is due to retire at the end of the year, and Graham will assume full responsibility for TCCA’s management from 1 January 2022.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Graham is founding chair and has remained a director of TCCA’s Australasian Critical Communications Forum since 2001. He has extensive experience in the critical communications sector, and in his career to date has worked for and with many TCCA member organisations.

With more than 40 years’ experience in the communications industry, his skills encompass engineering, sales and marketing, executive management and through his global consultancy and advisory services has accumulated a thorough understanding of standards organisations, regulators, industry associations and academia.

“Kevin will be joining us at an inflection point in our sector, as the potential of 5G begins to crystallise, as the rollout of critical broadband networks advances around the world, and as the importance of TETRA and other narrowband networks is reinforced as the continuing foundation for critical communications services,” said Mladen Vratonjić, Chair of TCCA’s Board.

“We look forward to Kevin building on Tony’s many significant achievements during his tenure as Chief Executive, providing continued commitment to our members, and taking TCCA forward into its next phase of development.”
