Sigfox loses president of North America operations

Tuesday 9 January 2018 | 12:30 CET | News
Sigfox confirmed that the executive at the helm of its North America operations, Allen Proithis, is no longer with the company, reports FierceWireless. In the role of president, Proithis had been leading the expansion of Sigfox's IoT network in North America since September 2015. Parting ways with Proithis was a "strategic decision" taken in October 2017, said the company, adding that a 40-percent population coverage target for the region – set for 2017 – had been missed due to a change in priorities.
