Boingo Wireless, Inc. (Nasdaq:WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of software and services worldwide, today announced it has appointed senior vice president of finance and administration, Peter Hovenier, to Chief Financial Officer.
Hovenier has been with the company since 2002, overseeing the organization’s expanding financial operations and managing strategic merger and acquisition events.
Hovenier’s M&A experience at Boingo includes the acquisition of Concourse Communications and Cloud Nine Media, as well as key Wi-Fi assets from Sprint and Opti-Fi. He replaces Ed Zinser, who has served as CFO of Boingo Wireless since 2008.
“Pete has been an instrumental part of this company since our earliest days,” said Dave Hagan, president and CEO of Boingo Wireless. “His tenure at Boingo during the evolution of the wireless markets gives him the breadth of experience and background necessary to support the future growth opportunities of our business.”
“Ed helped take us from a successful startup to a well-managed public company and groomed Pete for the CFO role. The contribution he made over the last four years will always be appreciated,” added Hagan. “We can only hope his next adventure is as exciting as this one has been.”
Prior to joining Boingo, Hovenier worked in various financial management positions at Frontera Corp., GeoCities (acquired by Yahoo!), MGM Studios and Wyndham Hotels Corp.
