A New Leader for Feeva?

Ex-Proxim Corp. CEO Kevin Duffy has a feeva and the only prescription -- it seems -- is a San Francisco-based startup that has developed a "targeted" content delivery system for hotspots and other public access WiFi networks.

Yep, the rumor mill has it that Duffy is set to become the CEO of Feeva in place of ex-ArrayCommer, Nitin Shah, who is currently chairman and CEO.

"I think they are preparing to announce soon," a source tells Unstrung.

For its part, Feeva hasn't responded to numerous calls and emails about the possible appointment.

Proxim was bought out of bankruptcy by Terabeam Wireless (Nasdaq: YDIW) in July. (See Terabeam Grabs Proxim's Assets.) Duffy became president and COO at the merged firm in July but left in September.

So why should you care that he's now at a startup with a somewhat catchy name? Just one word really: Google

For Feeva has done work with the web search giant on its public access WiFi project in San Francisco, which is being geared up to deliver user-related ads and over content the network. (See Google's Free-Time Secure WiFi and Google's Ad-Mad Network .) — Dan Jones, Site Editor, Unstrung
