WILMINGTON, DEL. (PRWEB) MARCH 11, 2019
Chordant today announced that telecommunications industry veteran Ken Corcoran has joined its board of directors. He is currently the CEO of Priority Partners, LLC.
With more than 37 years of experience in the wireless industry, Ken Corcoran has held senior positions at AT&T and América Móvil, where he served as CTO.
"We're thrilled that Ken made the decision to join our board of directors," said Mika Rasinkangas, President of Chordant. "His depth of experience, particularly with mobile network operators, adds tremendous expertise to our organization."
América Móvil is one of the largest mobile network operators in the world, providing mobile service throughout the Americas and Europe. In his role as CTO from 2001 to 2011, Corcoran was instrumental in growing several of the company's markets to a total of more than 300 million subscribers and roughly $60 billion in revenue. He helped grow two of these markets, Mexico and Brazil (the company's two largest subscriber bases) to more than 60 million subscribers each.
"Chordant's world-class IoT platform is going to be one of the key aspects in the growth of the Internet of Things," said Corcoran. "I'm delighted to lend my expertise and to assist the company in developing its potential to help network operators and solution providers build strong and scalable IoT solutions."
Corcoran has chaired numerous industry committees which resulted in the IS-54 TDMA digital specification replacing analog cellular, as well as the U.S. IS-41 signaling (SS7) backbone resulting in seamless roaming and call delivery.
