April 04, 1995|By a Sun Staff Writer

American Personal Communications, the Bethesda-based company that is building a wireless telephone network in the Baltimore-Washington area, has replaced its chief executive officer with the son of its founder.

APC announced yesterday that Scott Schelle, the 33-year-old son of cellular phone industry pioneer Wayne Schelle, would succeed Gerald T. Vento, who had been chief executive since January 1994.

The company said that Mr. Vento had "stepped down to pursue personal entrepreneurial interests." He will continue to serve as a consultant to APC on site acquisition, the company said.

In addition to elevating Scott Schelle, APC Chairman Wayne Schelle also announced the formation of an office of the chairman, consisting of himself, his son, Chief Operating Officer E. Y. Snowden and Chief Financial Officer Richard J. Roth.
