Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 16, 2008
Eleven Wireless, a leader in on-demand software for broadband networks, announced today that Dan Meub has joined the software company as Chief Executive Officer and President. Meub has also accepted a seat on the company's Board of Directors. Eleven co-founder and interim CEO Andrew Yorra is returning to his role leading business development and product strategy.
"Dan has made a career growing companies from the start-up phase to hundreds of employees, while establishing and expanding into new market categories like web analytics and desktop utility software. He is the right leader at the right time to take Eleven to the next level," said Eric Rosenfeld, managing partner of Capybara Ventures and Oregon Angel Fund, as well as long-time Eleven Board member. "Dan has the skills, drive and experience to grow our profitable company into a global leader."
Meub has helped numerous small software companies scale operations and accelerate growth, including SPC's Harvard Graphics, Calera Recognition Systems, Central Point Software and Now Software. The seasoned executive was the COO of WebTrends where he led operations and helped the company with its initial public offering in 1998, eventually merging with NetIQ in 2001. Meub then served as the merged company's SVP and GM of the Web Analytics Business Unit through 2003. Most recently, Meub served as COO of Building Champions, a business coaching company, where he was an executive coach to CEOs and senior executives across the country.
"Eleven has a strong leadership position in guest broadband management for the hospitality industry and a track record of consistent growth. Those elements definitely enticed me, particularly in this economic climate," said Meub. "Eleven doubled its revenue this year, is profitable and continues to see high-growth opportunities in hospitality and other markets. I am excited to lead Eleven as we deliver even greater customer value and incremental revenue for our hotel clients and industry partners."
In 2005, Eleven was named Development Stage Company of the Year by Oregon Entrepreneurs Network. Since then, the company has seen strong customer adoption of its software solutions in the hospitality market. This growth is fueled by its core software solutions, guest broadband management, business center computers, in-room laptop computers and most recently launched, a multi-function printing device for business centers. Eleven now serves more than 1,000 hotel properties, including larger brands like Hilton, Starwood and Marriott, as well as boutique brands such as Kimpton, Morgans, Affinia and Provenance hotels. The company delivers its solutions through leading network providers such as Sprint and LodgeNet.
