Brief: Notebaert Named as Tellabs Chairman

Richard Notebaert, former chairman of regional Bell operating company Ameritech Corp., has been named chairman of Tellabs Operations Inc., which makes optical networking, switching and broadband access gear. Notebaert was at the helm of Ameritech when SBC Communications Inc. bought it for US$62 billion in 1998. He should find the job manageable, because Tellabs does a little less than $3 billion in business compared with the $16 billion Ameritech did when it was sold.
