WASHINGTON – Rivada Networks, the inventor of Open Access Wireless Networking, announced today that former Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has joined its Board of Directors. As a member of the Board, Secretary Pompeo will advise Rivada on strategic issues and help guide the company's growth and expansion into new markets.
Secretary Pompeo served as the 70th U.S. Secretary of State from 2018 to 2021, during which time he led the State Department's efforts to advance American interests around the world.
