Siyata Mobile (NASDAQ: SYTA), a leading provider of Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) devices and cellular signal booster systems, has just announced a significant development. The company has appointed Doug Clark, an industry veteran with over 20 years of experience at AT&T (NYSE: T), as its new Assistant Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
In his previous role at AT&T, Clark served as the Assistant Vice President for FirstNet, which is a nationwide wireless communications network designed specifically for first responders and the public safety community. His responsibilities included overseeing the State Outreach and Consultation organization to ensure cellular connectivity for first responders across all 56 U.S. states and territories.
Clark also served as the National Director of AT&T's Advanced Application Solutions, where he successfully increased sales of strategic Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile dispatching solutions. He led high-performing teams that achieved consistent revenue growth in areas such as Mobile Unified Communication, fleet management, forms automation, and AT&T's Enhanced Push to Talk portfolio.
With the appointment of Doug Clark, Siyata Mobile gains a seasoned professional who brings extensive industry knowledge and expertise in sales and marketing. This move reflects Siyata Mobile's commitment to driving growth and innovation in the rapidly evolving field of Push-to-Talk over Cellular devices and cellular signal booster systems.
Marc Seelenfreund, CEO of Siyata, shared, “Doug brings a wealth of business development and sales experience, specifically in the public safety and emergency management spaces to Siyata that will be extremely beneficial as we continue to grow and scale our business. We are strengthening and expanding the depth of our management bench to capitalize on the timely awareness of need and rapidly increasing adoption of safety communication systems. Doug joins us from FirstNet, which was one of our earliest collaborators, where he served as a leader on the FirstNet team for years. We are committed to improving communications in public safety and further developing our relationship with FirstNet. Doug is the ideal candidate to help us achieve our objectives in this important space.”
This update follows the July announcement of the company’s largest SD7 purchase order of approximately $1.4 million. The SD7 handsets are approved for use by all major U.S. wireless carriers, and new orders continue to increase due to the demand for Push-to-Talk Over Cellular Handsets. Siyata announced its aggregate revenue at the time was approximately $6 million.
The recent purchase order is an add-on to the string of deals Siyata Mobile has been securing throughout the year. On June 1st, 2023, for example, the company received an order for $1.2 million for its UV350 In-Vehicle Devices and ‘Siyata Real Time View’ service. Four days later, on June 5th, 2023, Siyata received orders for $400,000 in aggregate revenue for its SD7 Handsets and VK7 Vehicle Kits.
It is clear that Clark has paid attention to Siyata’s growth and is excited about his addition to the team. Clark shared, “Having worked with public safety for 15 years, and involved in Push-to-Talk over Cellular and FirstNet since inception, I am excited to be joining Siyata which is a leading mission critical solution partner in the PTT space. Siyata understands public safety operations and is building solutions to transform public safety communications. Siyata is clearly a game changer in the PTT and body cam markets with its current SD7 and SD7+ Handsets, and its future roadmap is very impressive and a further testimony to their understanding of first responder communications. These innovative solutions on FirstNet provide clear benefits for first responders and for enterprise customers. I am proud to continue my career with such a public safety-focused innovation partner.”
