AirTight Networks Appoints New CEO

AirTight Networks, which specializes in enterprise, cloud-managed Wi-Fi, named Rick Wilmer as its new CEO. Prior to joining AirTight as COO in December 2014, Wilmer served as CEO of Leyden Energy and was an executive-in-residence at Lightspeed Venture Partners. He previously served as CEO of Pliant Technology (acquired by SanDisk) and as COO of Santur Corporation. Prior to that he was head of business operations at Aruba Networks, from its early days through its IPO in 2007. Wilmer also served in executive engineering and operations roles at 2Wire, Seagate and Maxtor.

AirTight also appointed Kester Kyrie to the position of vice president of worldwide sales and channels.

"I am extremely pleased with the executive team we have assembled, which positions us well to continue our growth and expand our presence in the global Wi-Fi market," said Wilmer. "2015 will be a transformative year for AirTight in terms of market expansion, sales growth and product innovation. Kester and I, along with our remarkable engineering team, will help ensure that we make the absolute most of the opportunities that lie ahead of us. We intend to do some spectacular things this year by driving our industry away from the old, expensive and complicated controller-based Wi-Fi to a completely new generation of cloud-based Wi-Fi that supports scalability and ease of use beyond anything that's out there today -- all with the very best wireless security."
