The retired executive left his mark on the industry in a big way, and he continues to lead by example.
The recipient of Wireless Week’s 2012 Lifetime Achievement award, Denny Strigl is one of those individuals who exemplify leadership more than anything. And those achievements just keep coming.
Strigl, 66, remembers what it was like back in the early, contentious days of telecom when the A side carriers sat on one side and the B side carriers were on another. Nobody understood the need to get these two sides working together for the greater good through an association like CTIA. But that is what happened back in 1984, when executives set aside their differences as much as they could to represent a broader, united industry.
