Well-funded mobile device management company OpenPeak has signed on former AT&T executive, Chris Hill, as its new president.

The mobile device and application management company created the new position so that Hill could help guide OpenPeak's strategy and identify market opportunities as the company gets into what it describes as a "rapid growth phase." Hill will report to Chairman and CEO Dan Gittleman.

Hill was formerly the senior VP of AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T)'s business solutions unit. (See AT&T's Armada: 4G, Small Cells & More.)

OpenPeak received $93 million in funding from AT&T in December 2013. It has pulled in $145 million in venture funding all told. (See Mobile VC Bumps Up to $868M in December.)

Aside from the funding, AT&T has been working closely with OpenPeak for a few years. OpenPeak developed the carrier's "Toggle" business and personal dual-billing software. (See AT&T Readies Dual-Billing Toggle Update in Q1 and AT&T App Enables Work/Play Divide.)

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.
