OpenPeak Signs AT&T's Hill as Prez for Biz Climb
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.
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.)
