Rivada welcomes Jeb Bush, Martin O'Malley to board

Rivada Networks, a contender for the nation's first nationwide broadband network dedicated for public safety, is adding more name-brand recognition to its roster, welcoming former Governors Jeb Bush (R - Florida) and Martin O'Malley (D - Maryland) to its board of directors.

The appointments come as the company prepares to unveil its bid to build out FirstNet's nationwide public-safety broadband network. The company says O'Malley and Bush, who ended his run for the presidency in February, will support Rivada Networks by providing strategic counsel and guidance, as well as by providing their unique insights into the challenges and needs of America's state governments as they prepare for FirstNet's network rollout.

"We are delighted to have these two proven leaders join the Rivada team," said Rivada Networks Executive Chairman and co-CEO Declan Ganley. "Their combined experience and record of leadership needs no introduction. Their leadership and wise counsel will help us serve America's First Responders and FirstNet, should we be selected as the winning bidder." Release
