Ottawa, Ontario (December 11, 2018) – Martello Technologies Group Inc. (TSXV: MTLO), (“Martello” or the “Company”), a leading provider of network performance management solutions for real-time communications announced today that Niall Gallagher, the co-founder and Vice President of Product Management of Martello, will retire, effective December 21, 2018. Niall will remain an active member of the Company’s Board of Directors.
Niall co-founded Martello Technologies in April 2009. His vision to develop a network performance management solution for unified communications networks was driven by his experience in strategic planning and product management for Mitel’s service provider business, and a 30 year career in the telecommunications industry. He assembled the team that would develop this software and played a key role in the growth of the company over the next nine years as Martello expanded with the acquisition of Elfiq Networks, went public on the TSX Venture Exchange, and acquired Savision.
“Martello would not be where it is today without Niall’s vision and persistence in founding the company and help in driving its growth”, said John Proctor, President and CEO of Martello. “I am delighted that Niall is remaining as a board member, giving us continued access to his knowledge and experience”.
Rob Doucette, the former CTO of Savision, will become Martello’s Vice President of Product Management.
In 2018, Martello has executed on acquisitions, organic growth, a public listing and received numerous awards. On November 2, the company announced the completion of its acquisition of Savision, after having acquired SD-WAN player Elfiq Networks in December 2017 and Netvitesse in 2014. The Company’s solutions have been recognized by the industry. In September, Martello received a Frost & Sullivan Leadership Award for NPM (Network Performance Management) and ranked as Ottawa’s Fastest Growing Company, at No. 28 on the Growth 500 list of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies. The Company’s debut on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) followed the closure of an oversubscribed $7.5 million private placement in June 2018.
