London (Business Wire) — The International M2M Council (IMC), said to be the fastest-growing trade group serving the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine communications (M2M) sector, has announced that KORE CEO Alex Brisbourne has been elected chairman. 

According to the IMC, Brisbourne was selected for his experience building KORE into the world’s largest mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) dedicated to providing wireless connectivity for M2M (See: KORE uses new ABRY funding to acquire RacoWireless and boost global M2M adoption). He has been a leading voice in M2M for more than 10 years, has served as a presenter at leading wireless conferences, and has been a regular contributor to M2M Now.

“Alex is a pioneer in M2M and one of the most-recognised executives in our industry. We look forward to his leadership as we continue to grow the IMC and deliver increasing value to M2M members around the globe,” said IMC executive director, Keith Kreisher.

The IMC has grown to 5,000 Adopter Members (associates), and it reports that more than 300 new professionals are joining each week. These M2M innovators from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and enterprises gain access to a wealth of IMC content covering everything from actual case studies to business best-practices to industry news.

Members come from the energy, healthcare and logistics industries with recent growth fueled by widespread M2M adoption in automotive telematics, building & construction, industrial Internet, retail and ‘smart city’ segments. The IMC’s member base spans the U.S. and Europe, with a rapidly growing population from Asian countries.

Brisbourne added, “The IMC serves a critical role in the M2M ecosystem. Never before has a group of M2M professionals spanning these disparate markets been assembled. I look forward to leading the IMC as we empower the growth of strategic M2M and IoT deployments.”
