Fixmo Announces Advisory Board, Adds to Board of Directors

We have previously written about the Mobile Risk Management leader Fixmo and their relevance to enterprise missions and I have shared my excitement to be on the advisory board of this very virtuous firm (see, for example, Fixmo And Mobile Risk Management For Enterprise and Government Agencies).

Fixmo has just announced the full membership of their advisory board plus some additions to their board of directors.

Other advisers include:

Mr. Wilson “Bill” Livingood. Bill is one of the most interesting (and nicest) human beings I have ever met. He spent 33 years in the US Secret Service (think of the stories he will never tell), and was elected Sergeant at Arms of the United Stated House of Representatives in 1995. He was subsequently re-elected through every session since till his retirement this month. As Sergeant at Arms he has had many responsibilities, including a need to ensure members of Congress are equipped to deal with the growing cyber threat to their systems (including mobile systems).

RADM Author Lawrence. Art has a distinguished career of service to the country as a medical professional. He has served as the Assistant Surgeon General and as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Art and found him to be very mission focused, but also a great person to hang out with. Art has also had many responsibilities regarding cyber security, including the need to equip a workforce with cyber solutions.

It is an honor to serve with Bill and Art at Fixmo.

The board at Fixmo contains many professionals I have long looked up to.  The board includes:

Rick Segal (Founder and CEO of Fixmo), Kenneth Minihan (Paladin Capital Group),  Frank Meehan (former board member of Spotify and SIRI), Paul Conley (Principal, Paladin Capital Group), Chris Albinson (Managing Director, Panorama Capital), Jeffrey Grammer (Partner, Rho Canada), John Stewart (VP and CSO, Cisco) and William Crowell (former Deputy Director of the National Security Agency).

The Fixmo team also includes the highly regarded widely respected national security professional Bruce Gilley, President of Fixmo US.

We will provide more on Fixmo’s capabilities via our postings here at CTOvision.com.  There is much more besides a strong leadership team to be excited about. They are fielding incredibly positive mobile risk management solutions.

STERLING, VA. – JANUARY 24, 2012 – Fixmo Inc., the mobile risk management (MRM) company, today announced its new Board of Advisors. Charter members include Mr. Bob Gourley, CTO at Crucial Point LLC; Mr. Wilson “Bill” Livingood, a 33-year veteran of the United States Secret Service and Sergeant at Arms (Ret.) of the United States House of Representatives for the 104th Congress; and Rear Admiral Arthur Lawrence, Assistant Surgeon General (Ret.) who last served in his over 37 year career as Director, Office of Security and Strategic Information, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and previously served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health Operations.

MRM brings together Mobile Security, Mobile Device Management, Corporate Data Protection, Mobile Integrity Management and Compliance Assurance into a single holistic solution to help customers stay protected and compliant while adopting new mobile technologies and embracing the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend.

“Mr. Gourley has a deep knowledge of the enterprise IT market segment through his R&D and concept development experience as a researcher at CTO Labs and editor at CTOvision.com. Admiral Lawrence has incredible experience promoting and protecting the medical and health security of the Nation as part of the Commissioned Corps of the United States Public Health Service. Mr. Livingood’s experience with the House of Representatives, its members and Capitol Hill is uniquely impressive. These three luminaries come together from unique backgrounds to form the ideal team for our Board of Advisors to help us grow our business across Government and Enterprise markets around the world in 2012,” said Rick Segal, Founder and CEO of Fixmo.

In addition, last month the company appointed Lieutenant General Kenneth Minihan (USAF-Ret.)—a former director of the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Mr. Frank Meehan—founder of INQ Mobile and former board member of Spotify and SIRI—to its Board of Directors while announcing the completion of a $23M Series C investment funding round.

Minihan and Meehan joined existing board members Rick Segal (CEO, Fixmo), Paul Conley (Principal, Paladin Capital Group), Chris Albinson (Managing Director, Panorama Capital), Jeffrey Grammer (Partner, Rho Canada), John Stewart (VP and CSO, Cisco) and William Crowell (former Deputy Director of the National Security Agency).

“Expanding our board to include such esteemed executives in the security, government and mobility sectors will further diversify the talents of our board and its capabilities in 2012 and beyond,” added Segal. “Fixmo’s customers, employees and its stakeholders at large will benefit from the new ideas and fresh energy they will bring to Fixmo’s growing business and the expansion of the MRM category.”
