Ex-Wind River President Barry Mainz joined MobileIron as CEO and member of the board of directors, effective from January 6.
Barry replaced MobileIron founder Bob Tinker, who led the company for eight years and secured over $160 million in annual gross billings.
Barry was recently the President of Wind River, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation. Prior to joining Wind River, Barry spent more than 15 years in sales leadership roles at a number of technology companies including Mercury Interactive, Sun Microsystems, and Seagate Technology.
Welcoming him, Tinker said Barry’s experience and leadership are the right combination to build on the strong progress we made over the last year. “I look forward to working closely with him.”
Barry noted that he has personal experience with MobileIron product and believe it is the best in the market.
“As President and CEO, I will focus on positioning the company to achieve growth and profitability in a rapidly changing enterprise software environment for the benefit of customers, shareholders, employees, and partners,” he said.
