Renowned app development company Robots and Pencils is extending its reach south of the border with the appointment of Phil Komarny as CEO, USA, a newly created position. Komarny will be overseeing the strategic direction, expansion and operations of Robots and Pencils in the United States.
“Robots and Pencils has experienced huge growth over the last six years, moving from a two-person startup to an internationally recognized company that has developed over 250 apps used by more than 20 million people worldwide. It’s time that we have a dedicated person to manage and grow our operations in the US,” said Michael Sikorsky, CEO, Global and co-founder of Robots and Pencils. “As an award-winning innovator and mobile technology expert, Phil is a great addition to our team.”
Komarny joins Robots and Pencils from Seton Hill University, where he served as vice-president of information technology and chief information officer, and positioned the university as a leader in mobile technology.
Under Komarny’s leadership, Seton Hill became the first university to integrate the iPad in the classroom, launching the Mobile Learning @ The Hill initiative and providing all full-time students and faculty members with an iPad. As a result of this forward-thinking approach to teaching and learning, Mobile Learning @ The Hill received the Apple Distinguished Program award three times, an award for programs that are recognized centres of educational excellence and leadership. The university was also one of 100 companies to receive the 2013 CIO 100 award by IDG’s CIO magazine for demonstrated excellence and achievement in IT.
“Mobile devices are becoming more integrated in our lives, and they will continue to change the way we interact with computers and each other,” said Komarny. “Companies like Robots and Pencils will be integral in the creation of platforms, applications and interfaces that will enable the next big wave of technological innovation. I’m thrilled to be part of a company that will help shape our future.”
