ANAHEIM, Calif. -- NextPhase Wireless (OTCBB:NXPW), an emerging national service provider of wireless broadband connectivity and turnkey wireless solutions, today announced the appointment of Robert Ford as the new Chief Executive Officer. He replaces Stephen Young who will assume the role of Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Ford is a former DuPont executive who served as Chief Technology Officer for a $1.8B services business and co-founded DuPont's Corporate e-Business Center. With over 20 years of diverse experience in information technology, business management and communications roles, he is regarded as an industry expert on emerging technologies and e-Business.

"This is a very exciting time for the wireless industry and for NextPhase," said Ford. "One of my passions is helping businesses and consumers access technology that can change how they work, collaborate and communicate. I believe wireless is that technology and that NextPhase is positioned to be a market leader."

Ford said he plans on focusing on building interest among investors, investigating high growth markets, integrating acquisitions and focusing existing business to drive revenue and growth. "This is a highly fragmented industry that will benefit from disciplined processes and customer-focused business models. My goal is to ensure that NextPhase takes advantage of the $2.3B broadband wireless market boom that is forecasted in the next five years."
