Wirefire’s CEO, Craig Chomat, and President, David Wood, will be integral in the transition plan over the coming months. Alon Goldberg will join iON as a new Field CTO. As iON continues to expand into new markets, the combined company will hire several key positions in strategic sales, marketing, product development, and technical services.
“Wirefire has spent years establishing trust and quality with a diverse set of industrial and commercial enterprises in British Columbia and across Canada,” says David Wood, President of Wirefire. “We are confident iON will define a new chapter in service and solutions delivery, as all organizations have an ever-increasing demand for cybersecurity.”
