Rigado is excited to announce a new member to its growing team as Jeff Brown takes on the role of Vice President, Sales. Brown was formerly Vice President of Dell Technology’s Global IoT and Embedded Sales Team and brings more than 25 years of experience in the sales and marketing space for embedded computing solutions.
Brown says the move to Rigado is driven by the incredible opportunity Rigado’s edge technology creates in the commercial IoT space.
“Rigado is offering a solution that is more than just hardware or just software,” Brown said. “What Rigado has is an amazing approach to managing the hardware and application level combined with a rich experience in Bluetooth technology. That’s a very unique mix and it allows us to piece together these different sides that are often separated in today’s IoT marketplace”
Brown said that blend of software sophistication and technology expertise is what first excited him about Rigado as “the result of those two components is what can truly help customers on their journey to creating amazing IoT solutions.”
“We’re very excited to have Jeff join the team at this key point in Rigado’s growth”, says Kevin Tate, Rigado’s Chief Revenue Officer. “In particular, Jeff brings a rare level of experience working with global customers and partners to deploy large-scale edge connectivity and computing gateways for Commercial and Industrial IoT solutions.”
Brown’s background also includes nearly 14 years with Advantech as Vice President of Sales & Marketing, as well as an MBA from Roosevelt University and an Engineering degree from Marquette.
“One of the common threads in my career is compute,” Brown said. “I’ve also learned a lot about what to do and what not to do in the IoT space, so when I looked at this move, I wanted to find a company that was nimble enough to adapt to individual changes, needs or challenges. Everything I saw from Rigado showed me this is a team willing to tweak the recipe to make things work right for customers. That’s a really exciting approach and it’s why I’m thrilled to join the team.”
