Carrier IQ, the market leader in delivering Mobile Intelligence, today announced the appointment of Ben Bergeret to the role of Vice President and General Manager of Devices. Mr. Bergeret joins Carrier IQ having founded and grown two successful start-ups – Realeyes3D and Qipit – that benefited from his significant experience managing company operations globally, and his proven ability to identify the fastest paths to market. Prior to this, as head of EMEA Sales for Lucent Technologies' Software Products Group, he developed in-depth knowledge of mobile operators' operations and challenges in the areas of billing and care.
“As an industry expert and award-winning innovator, Ben brings invaluable knowledge to the smartphone ecosystem and, specifically, the business and technical challenges of delivering complex, reliable devices to market quickly,” said Larry Lenhart, CEO of Carrier IQ. “We look forward to utilizing this knowledge as we expand our role in delivering Mobile Intelligence to device manufacturers, network operators, and others to drive improvements in customer experience.”
“In my previous roles, as we developed software for smartphones, my companies were constantly challenged by the lack of information on how our applications and devices were performing in the real world,” Mr. Bergeret said. “After spending time with the Carrier IQ team, I realized they had solved many of the challenges in obtaining and analyzing performance data at scale, and I now look forward to expanding Carrier IQ’s leadership role in delivering Mobile Intelligence to a global customer base.”
