Former Clearwire CEO Erik Prusch appears to be assembling the old band together at NetMotion Wireless.
Six months after joining the Seattle-based mobile productivity company, Prusch has hired Jim Ryder as president and Cary Baker as CFO.
Both men previously worked at Clearwire, which sold to Sprint in July 2013 after a drawn out bidding war.
“It takes a unique combination of expertise, drive and ingenuity to continually achieve results in highly competitive technology markets,” said Prusch in a press release. “As we concentrate on expanding our business, Mr. Ryder and Mr. Baker both deliver outstanding operational experience working with high-growth companies and have proven abilities in rapidly scaling sales and marketing operations.”
NetMotion was acquired in 2012 by Clearlake Capital Group, a private equity firm with $1.4 billion under management. It was started in 2001 as a spin out of WRQ.
