We are proud to have her as a key member of our leadership team.”
“I am honored to receive this award and grateful for the entire global team at DZS without whose unwavering support and excellent collaboration this would not have been possible,” said Kawecki. “It is a privilege to work for such a great company that in addition to valuing excellence and innovation is committed to being an excellent corporate citizen. I am truly blessed to be part of such an amazing group of professionals and look forward to continuing to contribute to our ongoing success.”
