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

Dan Jones

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.)

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
