I was travelling yesterday and missed being able to write that Mobivox has a new CEO, Peter Diedrich. I first met Peter as a partner at Skypoint Capital. Shortly after he joined Thunder Bay Telecom as president, and periodically I’d run into him at the airport flying back and forth from Ottawa to his new fiefdom in the North.
His appointment as CEO of Mobivox is great news, for Mobivox and it’s customers. While I’ve admired Mobivox’ innovative technology solutions in the past, at it’s heart is evolving into an alternative phone company. A phone company exec is probably just the ticket needed to help fuel growth and profitability.
