ATLANTA -- Numerex Corp (NASDAQ:NMRX), a leading provider of managed enterprise solutions enabling the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that its Board of Directors has terminated the employment of Marc Zionts as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Mr. Zionts’ termination was not related to any Company accounting, internal controls, or financial reporting matter. Kenneth Gayron, the Chief Financial Officer, will assume the additional role of interim CEO working in close conjunction with the full Board while the Company conducts a search for a permanent CEO. In addition, Kelly Gay has agreed to join Numerex as its Chief Operating Officer and will work closely with Ken to manage the Company’s array of security and IoT solutions and diversified customer base.

“I am very pleased with the confidence the Board of Directors has exhibited in appointing me to this interim position,” stated Ken Gayron. “I believe that the Company’s operational and financial performance will significantly improve as we focus our resources on our key product lines of security, certain industrial IoT solutions, and our robust IoT network and application services. I look forward to working with Kelly and other members of our management team to execute our strategy with renewed energy and focus and to re-assert ourselves as a leader in the IoT space.”

The Company is expected to significantly improve its EBITDA performance over 2016 with estimates of adjusted EBITDA ranging from $8.5 million to $10 million. Revenue is anticipated to improve on a year-over-year basis, as well. The Company will provide an estimate of full year revenue expectations by its next scheduled results conference call.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
