Rigado is pleased to announce the newest member of its IoT edge computing team as Russell Corvese takes on the role of Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
Corvese was formerly Vice President of Transportation & Logistics SaaS Sales at CalAmp and brings more than 25 years of executive selling experience in Telematics IoT, SaaS Software Solutions and Semiconductors.
Corvese says his move to Rigado was driven by the strong momentum Rigado is realizing in the Commercial IoT space. As more and more companies look to put IoT solutions to work across commercial segments, he sees the demand for Rigado’s edge computing and connectivity solutions increasing rapidly.
“I’m incredibly excited to join the Rigado team and be part of their continuing global expansion in 2020. It’s obviously something of an unusual time in the market (as we all adjust to the challenges of COVID-19), but to me, those challenges have also underscored just how important large-scale connected devices are to our future – in areas as diverse as retail, smart office, healthcare and logistics.”
Corvese also says he has been impressed with the way Rigado collaborates with customers to speed up their path to production. “Rigado’s significant experience with large scale pilots & production roll-outs – combined with their ability to work with a wide variety of clouds, applications and devices – makes them a uniquely valuable partner to teams deploying large-scale IoT solutions.”
Prior to CalAmp, Corvese served in strategic sales leadership roles at early stage companies and large enterprises alike. He served as VP of Global Sales at Entomo and Abound Logic, as well as sales leaderships roles at Magma, Fairchild Semiconductor and Actel. He joined the Rigado team in March…welcome aboard, Russell!
