AbleNet Inc., a world leader in assistive technology products and U.S. leader in providing curriculum, skills development, and technology for special education students, announces the promotion of Adam Wing to Senior Director of International Business. Wing will be responsible for continuing to support and expand the company's strong international presence.
"We have been very impressed with Adam's ability to understand the unique needs of our invaluable network of international distributors, but also his capacity for driving our short and long-term growth plans for the international market," said Jen Thalhuber, CEO of AbleNet.
Wing joined the company in January 2007 as Director of International Business, and quickly rose to the position of Senior Director of International Business, due in large part to his accomplishments in the areas of identifying and developing international business opportunities for AbleNet.

Prior to joining AbleNet, Wing played key marketing, sales, training, and business development roles at Laureate Learning Systems, a special needs software developer, and SchoolSpring.com, an online employment source for educators.
Wing is a highly regarded thought leader in the field of assistive technology, as well as an accomplished public speaker, writer and strategist. He currently sits on the board of directors for the Alliance for Technology Access, a 20-year-old non-profit organization dedicated to technology access, and will serve as board president in 2008.
"I'm looking forward to supporting and growing the assistive technology community on a global scale," Wing said. "AbleNet is dedicated to ensuring that individuals with disabilities benefit from the best technology available, and I'm proud to be leading the international initiative."
