NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobility management solutions and sponsored by Clearlake Capital, today announced the appointment of Christopher Kenessey as president. Mr. Kenessey will lead the company's global business operations, sales, marketing, and engineering, reporting directly to chief executive officer John Ferron. Mr. Kenessey brings nearly two decades of industry experience to his new role. He previously served as chief sales and marketing officer of UK-based software provider, The Foundry, and director of worldwide sales and operations for the intelligent automation business unit at Cisco.
“Christopher has built an impressive track record of strategic and operational accomplishments,” said John Ferron. “He brings a strong reputation for inspiring people and developing teams. His rich software background and business acumen will be valuable assets to the senior leadership team as it focuses on accelerating growth in 2016 and beyond. I could not be more pleased about his appointment to this critical role.”
“With an addressable global market of more than 30 million mobile workers, NetMotion’s mobile security and performance management solutions are in demand around the world,” said Kenessey. “I am honored to lead the company, building upon the strong foundation for growth that Mr. Ferron’s team created. I look forward to guiding NetMotion through the next phase of growth and global expansion.”
Mr. Kenessey has experience leading and growing companies into industry leaders. He has successfully brought multiple new products to market through strong collaboration with engineering, product management, sales and marketing.
At The Foundry, Mr. Kenessey pivoted the organisation into new markets which resulted in an exit for £215 million to HG Capital. He joined Cisco via the acquisition of Tidal Software where he was vice president of worldwide sales and helped grow the organisation from £2.75 million to £36.5 million.
