LUXEMBOURG -- Excilan, a public internet access enabler, today appointed industry veteran Sean O'Mahony as its new CEO. Previously, O'Mahony served as the CEO and President for FatPort Corporation, the largest public Wi-Fi network provider in Canada with about 150 hotspots in operation. Under the leadership of O'Mahony, FatPort has earned the reputation of being one of the most innovative WISPs in the world. Lodewijk Cornelis, founder and former CEO will continue working with Excilan as a board member.

"This is an important and logic next step for Excilan," said Cornelis. Excilan was founded in 2001 with a vision to enable Wi-Fi usage in an easy and secure fashion. Less than a year later the company offers their service to 12 Mobile Operators whose end users can access over 6.000 hotspots from 65 WISPs world-wide. Excilan is now expanding its solution to cater for more authentication methods which will attract ISPs, fixed telco's and mobile operators.

"Sean brings tremendous experience and relationships from FatPort as well as his previous ventures in Japan, US and Europe. He is the perfect combination of business leader and innovator to take Excilan beyond the successfully completed development and roll out phase to a solid global business. Excilan will continue working intensively with its current and new partners in order to deliver on the vision of easy to use and secure global public internet access for everyone," said Magnus Melander, Partner at BrainHeart Capital and Chairman of Excilan's board of directors.

Sean O'Mahony said: "I have followed Excilan since the company was founded and recognized that their approach to the rapidly developing market is unique and very innovative. The ability to work with Excilan and BrainHeart was not an opportunity I could pass on. I intend to build on the excellent foundation that Lodewijk has laid for the company."
