CALGARY, Alta. — CSI Wireless has shuffled its management structure to accommodate its strong growth over the past few years.
That growth includes a 15-fold increase in revenues between 1997 and 2003, and the new organizational structure allows the company to better manage its current size as well as its anticipated growth.
“In a relatively short time, CSI Wireless has become an international corporation that is generating revenue from customers in more than 40 countries, and has become a leading or dominant player in several global market niches,” said Stephen Verhoeff, CSI Wireless’ president, CEO and founder. “Our dramatic growth requires us to move beyond the entrepreneurial model, by recruiting new skills and adopting new organizational processes. The changes that we are announcing today represent significant steps in addressing these requirements.”
The changes include the appointment of Colin Maclellan to the new position of chief operating officer. He will assume responsibility for CSI’s GPS and wireless business units as well as the consolidated performance of the company.
In addition, Michael Cummiskey has joined the company, filling the role of vice-president of business development, fixed wireless and radio products. He will be responsible for the leadership of customer and marketing activities related to CSI’s fixed wireless and radio products.
Meanwhile, Theresa Lea, vice-president and general manager of the company’s GPS business unit will report to Maclellan while taking on a more active role in the unit’s sales and marketing activities.
In another recent appointment, Cameron Olson has been appointed chief financial officer and vice-president of finance for the growing Canadian company.
“I am excited about the moves that we are making today,” Verhoeff said. “These organizational changes are key steps for CSI Wireless on its path to becoming a truly global company, with a world-class management team and management processes.”
