Good Technology appoints new CEO

10 Jan 13

Good Technology has appointed Christy Wyatt as president and CEO of the company.

The mobility solutions provider says former CEO King Lee will remain on the company’s board and serve as Executive Chairman, "staying involved through the transition to impart institutional knowledge and consult on new products and service offerings."

“We could not have selected a better person for the position,” Lee says.

“Christy brings tremendous leadership, experience, and vision in enterprise.

"Her energy and enthusiasm for the space is palpable, and I know she will lead us to incredible heights and even greater success.”

With more than 15 years of executive management and leadership experience in the high-tech and enterprise industry, Wyatt has served in a variety of roles with globally recognised business and technology brands.

Most recently as Global Head of Citi’s Consumer eBusiness and Mobile Technology, Wyatt led the technology teams responsible for leading-edge, high-volume, consumer-facing applications for the Internet, mobile and ATM channels for Citi’s entire consumer banking businesses globally.

Previously, Wyatt served as Senior Vice President and General Manager for Motorola Mobility's Enterprise Business Unit where she interfaced with customers as well as representatives of the telecommunications industry around the world to create and distribute industry leading mobile enterprise products and services globally.

Prior to joining Motorola, she served as Worldwide Developer Relations Director at Apple Computer and also held a variety of leadership roles at Sun Microsystems, JavaSoft and ESRI.

"Good Technology has established itself as the market leader in enterprise mobility, one of the fastest growing segments within mobile," Wyatt says.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join this team and to continue to drive focus on what mobile enterprises really need to be successful, and the powerful products that deliver that capability to our customers today."

When King Lee became CEO of Good Technology in 2010, Good began an aggressive transformation to become the leader in the enterprise mobility space.

The company says his "strategic vision and operational prowess has resulted in worldwide adoption of Good for Enterprise by more than half of the Fortune 100 and over 3,600 new customers in the last two years."

"On behalf of everyone at Good Technology, I would like to express our thanks to King and how instrumental he has been in growing the company, its client base, and product offering," says John Fisher, a Good Technology board member.

"King's achievements during his tenure as CEO are remarkable, and his steady hand guided Good though a significant shift in strategy, a challenging economic environment, and a cluttered competitive landscape.

"Thanks to King and his leadership, Good has emerged as the leader in the secure enterprise mobility space.”
