IET president gets CBE
IET president Dr Mike Short has been recognised amongst the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
Short, currently a visiting professor at a number of UK universities and v-p at Telefónica, becomes a CBE.
“It is a great honour to receive this personally for my contribution to the mobile industry even though many others have played such a great role,” said Short. “This is a truly great year to receive my medal after 25 years in the mobile industry and only 20 years since the first digital mobile phone was approved for connection to mobile networks.”
He was also awarded an honorary doctorate for services to the mobile communications industry in 2008.
