David Wilkinson, ex-ceo of network optimisation company Actix has popped up as the new ceo at CommProve — another network optimisation company.
Wilkinson was ceo of Actix from June 2005 until August 2006, when he was replaced by founder Rob Dobson, who served in an interim capacity until 13 February 2007, when ex-Amdocs man Alex Hawker took over.
Wilkinson takes over at CommProve from another interim ceo, Mauro Pretolani, who is also the board representative of CommProve investor TLcom.
Radio network Quality of Service and performance optimisation is an interesting sector at the moment, as more access technologies are layered on top of each other, and data and content service take up over 3G, HSPA and other technologies increases.
“David’s experience and expertise of the wireless market in drive test systems, network planning and performance management software, will be instrumental in driving our growth,” said Mauro Pretolani, interim CEO and board representative of CommProve investor TLcom.
Not to mention his experience of, and expertise in, a major competitor.
