Scott Edmonds, President and CEO of Webtech Wireless said, “Harald is a long time wireless veteran who has built a world class organization of top performers since taking over the leadership of our sales group in 2010. Harald has built an organization where performance is measured in customer satisfaction and retention, not just in numbers. He has done this by attracting high performers and by ensuring all of the people in his department adhere to his ethos of professional, high touch engagement with our customers. The team he has attracted and built is exactly who we and who our customers want to have carrying the Webtech Wireless brands.”
Mr. Fritz’s extensive wireless industry and sales background includes roles with leading hardware and software suppliers, including four years with Sierra Wireless and four years with EXI Wireless. Notable deals which Mr. Fritz has been involved with at Webtech Wireless include the establishment and build out of Webtech Wireless’ distribution arrangement with AT&T, the establishment of a number of carrier relationships in Canada, distribution and sales arrangements with a variety of partner software and systems integrations companies and the closing several tens of millions of dollars of hardware and customer services revenue both as head of Webtech Wireless’ carrier channel, and more recently as leader of the sales group.
Mr. Fritz said, “I look forward to building on the success our team has achieved over last two years, in particular with the recent additions we have made to the team. I am confident that we will continue to deliver high value, sticky, differentiated solutions to our customers in Transport, Oil and Gas and Government as our product suite evolves towards our vision of Fleet Intelligence Anywhere.”
