NetNumber has appointed a new CEO. The man at the helm of the company, which provides service delivery platform for centralized signal routing and database services to wireless and wireline telecommunications operators, will be Brad Boston (News - Alert), who not only offers the company more than 30 years of relevant experience -- most notably his position as the former CIO of Cisco Systems -- but also his role as a member of the NetNumber (News - Alert) board of directors since April 2002.
Joe Farrelly, the chairman of the board at NetNumber, welcomes Boston’s experience and leadership, making it clear that a great responsibility lies ahead for him; “In his new role as president and CEO, he will be responsible for positioning NetNumber for future growth and greater visibility in the telecom and networking industries.” He went on to describe how Boston would live up to the demands placed upon him; “His technology background, combined with his experience as a C-level executive will play a pivotal role in defining our next-generation product suite, extending our track record of innovation and customer-focus, while helping us grow for the future.”
According to a recent statement from NetNumber, its new CEO held executive-level positions with a number of big names, including Visa, American Express (News - Alert) and United Airlines, among others. Among his many past achievements, Boston managed the early development, operations and support for Travelocity.com, and, in what the statement calls a “historic transaction,” he created an IT firm valued at more than its parent company when he was brought on board Sabre Group as it prepared for its “spin-out” from American Airlines.
While the company did not announce his appointment until this morning, Boston’s LinkedIn profile reveals that he has been at the position since July. He also currently serves as the chairman of the board at aap3, a global IT services and recruitment provider.
