Top wireless executives: Where are they now?

Phil Goldstein

The wireless industry is full of interesting executives. As the market ebbs and flows, some of these executives travel in and out of the spotlight. But it's sometimes worth tracking these players down to find out what happened to them, what they're working on now and where they're headed next.

Thus, FierceWireless editors selected 10 former wireless industry executives to catch up with. This list is certainly not exhaustive, but is instead intended as a way to check in with some of the big names in wireless from the past dozen years or so to see where they are now.

Are there other former wireless executives who you would like FierceWireless to catch up with? Please let us know in the comments!
