Concurrent today announced the establishment of an advisory board that includes former Cox Communications CTO Chris Bowick.

Other board appointees include William Markey and Vin Bisceglia, who, along with Bowick, will provide third-party counsel on Concurrent’s cross-platform strategy and execution.

“We are excited to tap into the minds of leaders like Chris, William and Vin as we continue to execute on our strategy for three-screen video delivery and media data management,” said Dan Mondor, president and CEO of Concurrent. “As we expand our offerings for the TV, PC and mobile devices, we believe drawing on this collective expertise will help us expand and accelerate our program’s success.”

Bowick, currently president of The Bowick Group, retired as senior vice president of engineering and chief technology officer with Cox in June. At Cox, he was responsible for strategic technology planning and the development and deployment of technology solutions for the company’s video, voice, high-speed data and wireless products.

He was also responsible for network engineering and network operations for Cox’s nationwide network infrastructure. He currently serves on the board of directors of LiquidxStream Systems, and his previous experience includes leadership roles at Jones Intercable, Jones Futurex, Scientific Atlanta and Rockwell International's Collins Avionics Division.

Markey is president of RCBG, a business strategy and advisory services firm for the telecom, media and technology industries. RCBG works with carriers, media companies, technology providers and equity investors to identify and execute growth opportunities across the globe.

Prior to RCBG, Markey co-founded Ucentric Systems, a video server technology acquired by Motorola. His more than 20 years of industry experience also includes work with Pacific Telesis (now AT&T), 3Com and Motorola.

Bisceglia brings more than 28 years of technology industry experience to Concurrent’s advisory board. He is currently a general partner at Genovation Capital, a venture firm in formation targeting early-stage technology startups in communications, media and Internet applications.

Over the years, Bisceglia has served in a number of leadership positions for companies, including Broadbus (acquired by Motorola) – where he served as chairman and CEO – Neon Communications, TSG, Transaction Management and National Semiconductor/DTS.
