AirPatrol Names New Vice President of Engineering

AirPatrol Corporation today announced the promotion of Mark Wilson to Vice President, Engineering. Wilson, who has been with the company since its founding in 2008, was previously its director of software of development where he captained the creation of AirPatrol’s mobile device security product, ZoneDefense, as well as its new location-based services platform, ZoneAware.

“Mark’s promotion reflects the tremendous work he’s done over the years as head of our software development team,” said AirPatrol CTO, Dr. Guy Levy-Yurista. “He has demonstrated significant skill in not simply pure technology, but market vision and the management of talented engineers. With both AirPatrol’s software and hardware development under his guidance, I believe we’ll continue to grow and innovate in mobile security and location-based services,” he said.

A veteran software engineer with nearly a quarter century of experience, Wilson honed his skills in the fast-paced environment of enterprise and security software startups. As AirPatrol’s head of software development, he helped take the company’s award-winning wireless and telecommunication security products from concept stage to commercial sales.

In his new role, Wilson’s duties will include overseeing AirPatrol’s software development team as well as the hardware development group that designs the company’s line of cellular and WiFi sensors. Wilson will be based out of the company’s engineering office in Vancouver, British Columbia.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to continue building on the success of AirPatrol’s solutions,” Wilson said. “I think we’re at the very beginning of an era in which mobile security and location-based services will be a critical part of virtually every aspect of business, and I look forward to helping AirPatrol play a vital role,” he added.
