Finley will continue as a member of the board, where he has served since August 2013. Finley succeeds Boingo’s current CEO and chairman of the board Dave Hagan, who has announced his desire to retire after 17 years of service to the company. Hagan will continue to serve as a member of the board, while Lance Rosenzweig, Boingo’s lead independent director, will become chairman of the board. All changes will take effect March 18, 2019.
Prior to his appointment as Boingo’s CEO, Finley spent nearly nine years at Qualcomm, most recently as president of North America and Australia. His responsibilities included all carrier and new business development; OEM sales for mobile, computing, auto, connectivity, IOT, voice and music; product marketing; marketing and public relations; engineering services; and operations.
“After working with Mike for five years, the board and I are delighted that he will lead Boingo as we build wireless infrastructure in the 5G era,” said Dave Hagan, CEO and chairman of the board. “Mike’s deep industry knowledge and his carrier experience have been instrumental in helping Boingo navigate the wireless landscape over the last five years. His wireless background coupled with the institutional knowledge he’s gleaned as a member of the board make Mike uniquely qualified to lead Boingo successfully into the 5G future.”
“I’m incredibly excited to be joining Boingo at this moment in the wireless industry,” said Finley. “With its portfolio of high-volume indoor venues, Boingo is exceptionally well positioned to take advantage of the need for greater densification and indoor coverage that 5G requires. I look forward to helping the Boingo team accelerate growth even further as 5G comes to market, and I thank Dave for his extraordinary leadership for the past 17 years.”
“Dave has made incredible contributions to Boingo’s success,” said Lance Rosenzweig, on behalf of Boingo’s board. “From taking the company public in 2011, to building an award-winning culture, Dave helped grow Boingo from a start-up to the world’s leading Wi-Fi and indoor DAS provider. With Dave’s continued contributions as a board member and Mike’s leadership as CEO, the board of directors believes Boingo is poised for lasting growth in the wireless infrastructure industry.”
