Eseye appoints industry heavyweights, Rob Lloyd and Kimmberly Lau, to bring a combined 50+ years of technology and financial experience to Eseye, as the UK-headquartered IoT pioneer enjoys significant growth
Guildford, UK: Eseye, a pioneer of leading-edge IoT connectivity solutions, has announced the appointment of Rob Lloyd and Kimmberly Lau to its Board of Directors. Both are seasoned technology and investment evangelists who will counsel Eseye’s senior leadership team as it continues on its upward growth trajectory.
Eseye has witnessed strong demand from enterprises who need to reduce the complexity of global IoT deployments, which has been a barrier to large-scale project rollouts, especially in North America. Both Rob and Kimmberly’s experience will prove invaluable to help customers and prospects overcome these challenges, while strengthening Eseye’s services proposition worldwide.
Rob is a leading visionary in global technology, spending over 20 years at Cisco in various executive leadership roles, across North America and Europe. During his tenure, Rob served as President of EMEA, rising to Executive Vice President of Worldwide Operations, before becoming President of Engineering and Sales in 2012.
In this position, Rob led a global team of 40,000 responsible for product development, worldwide sales, and channels and IoT, generating over $40bn in annual revenues. Subsequent to his time at Cisco, Rob served as the CEO of superfast transportation service, Virgin Hyperloop, for three years in the Los Angeles area.
Rob also serves on the Board of Trustees at Santa Clara University in his native California, and on the boards of several non-profit organisations that are focused on education and opportunity for youth.
Kimmberly brings over 25 years of experience as a capital markets professional to Eseye’s Board of Directors. She started her career as a management consultant in Central and Eastern Europe and is currently an executive Director and Partner at Asset Value Investors, which she joined in 2003.
Experienced in engaging with the Boards of both public and private companies, Kimmberly recently joined the board of a charity and education company.
“I join the rest of the senior leadership team in welcoming both Kimmberly and Rob to Eseye’s Board of Directors; they are entering the business at an extremely exciting and prosperous time,” comments Nick Earle, CEO of Eseye. “They bring a wealth of experience and a perfect blend of technology and business acumen to Eseye, which will prove enormously beneficial to customers and partners.”
