Digital marketing technology and solutions provider Wireless Ronin Technologies Inc. announced it has appointed John Walpuck as its chief operating officer and chief financial officer.
Walpuck will succeed Darin McAreavey, who resigned as CFO effective close of business on April 2. According to Wireless Ronin, Walpuck brings nearly 20 years of diverse operational, financial and technology industry experience to the company. His directly related experience in the technology industry includes digital broadcasting, digital media monetization and digital media services, the company said, and he has served as an executive officer for publicly traded and privately held companies ranging in size from $25,000 in startup capital to more than $20 billion in revenue.
Walpuck has an MBA from the University of Chicago, is a certified management accountant, a certified public accountant, and holds other professional certifications, the company said.
"John's diverse background and experience perfectly align with our current needs and objectives. His financial and operational experiences speak for themselves. However, he has also demonstrated the ability to step outside those roles to help companies drive significant revenue growth," Wireless Ronin President and CEO Scott Koller said in the announcement. "Having the position of chief operating officer reestablished will also help support Wireless Ronin's aggressive growth initiatives. In the near-term, he will be responsible for facilitating the integration of Broadcast International, a transformative merger we expect to close this quarter."
Walpuck said he was "very excited to join Ronin at this pivotal stage of the company's development, especially given the pending merger with Broadcast International."
