IoT.nxt USA appoints COO for Americas as operation grows
Award-winning South African-based Internet of things (IOT) technology company subsidiary IoT.nxt USA has appointed Jason Bradlee as its Chief Operating Officer for the Americas.
Prior to joining IoT.nxt, Bradlee served as Executive Vice-President and Head of Security for Fujitsu Americas, and before that he acted as Vice-President at Ericsson, where he led the consulting and systems integration networks and cloud business for North America. He has also served as an Industry Sales Leader at HP.
"Jason's client service experience and vast knowledge of the latest digital technology and security trends will help and guide customers to understand and navigate evolving IOT and security challenges. Companies face many challenges and Jason's expertise will enable our customers to harness digital transformation as a critical driver of success. This appointment will help us drive our US expansion and firmly establish our US operation," says IoT.nxt CEO Nico Steyn.
IoT.nxt USA has already successfully secured a multimillion-dollar energy management project in Florida state, which uses the IoT.nxt platform technology and strategies to deliver energy optimisation and reduce consumption. Bradlee will spearhead the American arm of the company, managing operations, strategy, direction and the offering portfolio. Bradlee and the US team will also support go-to-market alignment with key partners across the US IOT industry.
"While take-up of our technology in the American market has already surpassed our expectations, we knew that to scale effectively and retain traction, we needed someone local on the ground with the necessary domain expertise," says Steyn.
"Jason brings a wealth of experience and has extensive knowledge of IOT, security, consulting, system integration and outsourcing. We see great potential for expanding our company in the USA and he is the ideal person to lead that drive," Steyn added.
Bradlee earned a BS in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire, an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University and completed an executive programme in global business sponsored by AT&T with Penn State University.
The IoT.nxt USA office is based in Dallas, Texas. IoT.nxt's European office is based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
