MIAMI (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Advanced Wireless Group, LLC (AWG), a leader in design, integration, and operation of large venue public wireless networks, announced today that it has added Michael Allen to the team in the role of Vice President of Business Development.
Allen brings a wealth of experience in forming key, strategic partnerships with both airports and airlines, including spending the last 10 years at T-Mobile leading the company’s branded wireless network services entry into the aviation sector. Before his work with T-Mobile, Allen also held various positions with Electronic Data Services (EDS) and Hartmarx Corporation.
“Mike’s background and experience speaks to the services that our team looks to deliver through providing scalable, managed, enterprise grade infrastructure that supports both public and private side applications,” said Scott Phillips, President and CEO at AWG. “His industry relationships and proven ability to drive new levels of engagement within the airport sector and beyond, is a true advantage for our company and the venues we service.”
In his role with AWG, Allen will manage and develop new partnerships with both airport and new vertical market venues. His position will also entail a focus on broadening the wireless service offerings and partnerships throughout AWG’s footprint.
“Having recently been a friendly competitor with the team at AWG, this new role seems like such a natural fit,” said Allen. “AWG is truly a leader in network and venue operations, having really set the curve in pioneering complimentary and hybrid models.”
Allen’s addition follows a series of recent contract wins for the AWG team. The industry pioneer of the hybrid public Wi-Fi access solution recently won contracts with Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), adding to its portfolio of 15 U.S. airports.
