I am thrilled to be leading Cradlepoint as a market leader and innovator in wireless WAN solutions for business.
"In addition to providing businesses with industry leading 4G and 5G networking solutions, my goal is to ensure our partners and customers achieve an unfair advantage from our IT-centric, cloud-managed and true zero-touch deployment capabilities."
