Vertek Corporation, a telecom operation and managed security services provider, announced that Jorge Reis (left) has succeeded Brad Soutiere as company President as part of a long-planned succession search and that Ron Hruby has been promoted to COO.

Reis has been serving as Chief Strategy Officer since March 2022. Prior to joining Vertek, Reis had spent 19 years with Telstra, a $28 billion communications carrier headquartered in Australia, the last five of which were as COO of Telstra Americas.
