Boingo Wireless Appoints Nick Hulse President
Telecom and Digital Media Veteran to Drive Revenue Growth Across Business Units
Boingo Wireless (Nasdaq:WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced that Nick Hulse has been appointed President of the company. He will report to CEO Dave Hagan and assumes day-to-day responsibilities for maximizing revenue through the Sales, Marketing, Product, and Business Development teams.
Hulse brings nearly 25 years of executive experience in sales, marketing, and operations positions, most recently as the Chief Revenue Officer for the Rubicon Project where he was responsible for all company revenues, client services, marketing, technical operations, and international teams. He has previously held senior executive roles with iPass and Microsoft.
“Nick brings deep experience in industry sectors where we have significant growth potential,” said Hagan, Boingo Wireless CEO. “He has a history of successfully helping companies scale their revenues and maximize growth opportunities.”
“Since we’ve expanded our monetization platform considerably over the last year, we believe it’s time to bring in a dedicated executive who can drive growth and manage the execution against those opportunities,” added Hagan.
“Boingo has built a strong, diversified platform with a tremendous opportunity to grow much larger,” said Hulse, president of Boingo Wireless. “As the wireless industry looks to small cell providers like Boingo to help build the infrastructure to support exploding demand for data — and to provide services to help monetize that demand — we’ll be front and center to capitalize on their interest.”
With the acquisitions of Cloud Nine Media in 2012 and the Endeka Group in 2013, Boingo has expanded its global wireless service provider business to also include digital media and sponsorships, as well as military base broadband and IPTV services. Combined with elevated interest in both DAS and Wi-Fi networks in public venues, the new business lines create a unique portfolio of properties with a diversified monetization platform that will be cultivated by Hulse.
