Ubee Interactive said its executive chairman, Robert Y. L. Mao, will add the title of president upon the retirement of the company's CEO, Yuan-Hao Lin, effective Jan. 16.
Lin had been CEO for five years. During that stretch, the company said, Ubee nearly tripled annual revenue.
Mao is a 30-year veteran of the electronics industry. He was CEO of 3Com when it sold to Hewlett Packard in early 2010. Prior to that, he was at Nortel Networks, as CEO of the company's Greater China operations from 1997 to 2006. He also has held various executive positions at Alcatel and ITT.
The company has been finding success lately with DOCSIS 3.0 gateways integrating Wi-Fi capabilities.
