Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA. April 26, 2012 — Wyless Inc. has announced some key additions and changes to its senior management team this week, and completed the acquisition of a majority stake in ClearConnex, an engineering firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Steve Priestley joined the company in April to lead its Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) operations and is responsible for driving all areas of Wyless’ business, focusing on the interaction of Wyless, its customers, channels and partners. Steve has held vice president roles in Enfora in EMEA and globally and was a senior manager at Cisco and Symbol Technologies.
Shelby Noakes joins Wyless in May as vice president, Business Development, Americas. Shelby has a strong background in the M2M Carrier Services business, having spent time with both T-Mobile USA and more recently Rogers Communications, the Canadian mobile operator. Shelby’s role will cover business development, sales and partnerships focusing on the West Coast USA and also the Latin American markets.

Ryan will continue to run the company as a subsidiary of Wyless.
Ryan Keefe has also been elevated to the role of vice president, Global Business Development. “During Ryan’s past year with Wyless he has been instrumental in engineering our strategic relationships with Telefonica and NEC Corporation,” says Dan McDuffie, CEO of Wyless.
