The National Cable & Telecommunications Association’s Rex Bullinger is retiring in style this month with two awards from the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers.
Bullinger, senior director for broadband technology, was honored during a retirement party yesterday at NCTA headquarters.
Bullinger was the first recipient of two distinguished awards from the SCTE for his contributions to the cable industry:
- Lifetime Membership Award, which will ensure that he continues to enjoy the benefits of being a member of SCTE and all that membership entails.
- SCTE's newly established Distinguished Service Award, recognizing his "dedicated and loyal service to furthering the growth of the cable telecommunications industry.”
Both awards were presented at Bullinger’s retirement party and were marked as serial number “001” and signed by SCTE President and CEO Mark Dzuban.
“Rex has made significant contributions to the cable industry over his long career,” said the NCTA’s Bill Check, senior vice president of science and technology and CTO. “His vast knowledge of the cable industry and data communications networks has made him a highly respected engineer amongst his peers. We will certainly miss his extensive know-how and boundless experience.”
Prior to joining the NCTA, Bullinger was an engineer with @Home Network from 1998-2000, and he was with Hewlett-Packard from 1974-1998. While at HP, he was instrumental in the development of the 8591 Cable TV Analyzer.
Bullinger holds a bachelor of science degree in physics from Stanford University and a master of science in industrial engineering and engineering management from San Diego State University-California State University.
Bullinger’s last day with the NCTA is today.
