Retail Interact, a leading provider of hosted business management solutions for wireless retail stores, including those for T-Mobile, announced today that Robert Strickland, President of Strickland Consulting, has joined their board of directors.
Rob is a well-known industry consultant, and former CIO of T-Mobile, EchoStar Communications Corporation, Continental Cablevision, The Weather Channel and Harvard Business School. He also held key IT and management positions for Honeywell, Apple and other business solutions companies. With more than 20 years of experience in strategy development and leadership in these industries, Rob currently provides high-level consulting to SAP, Comverse, Nice Systems, ClickFox, PeerApp, and EMC/Greenplum. Rob also serves on boards for the Sundance Institute Technology Advisory Council, Centri Technologies, Sierra Ventures, Vivido Labs and The Hope Heart Institute.
“Rob Strickland is the perfect complement to our current board members, who primarily have mobile and satellite industry backgrounds,” explains Troy Powell, President of Retail Interact. “He has a great reputation and his extensive experience is hard to find in this market. We are excited for Rob to help us drive quality, innovation and service improvements for our QuikAct product, T-Mobile USA, its retail stores and future customers. We expect with Rob’s guidance Retail Interact will expand its footprint into other retail carriers.”
Retail Interact currently has hosted applications being used in T-Mobile retail stores across the U.S. Expansion into other wireless providers is planned for 2012.
