Prior to joining AetherWorks, Allan was at Kelvin Connect, a provider of mobile data and information management systems for the law enforcement and healthcare markets across the UK. He recorded powerful business efficiency benefits, and ultimately, saw the company through its acquisition by Airwave Solutions (now Motorola Solutions) in 2011.

He is currently a member of the NYC Forbes business council and a contributor on fog/cloud computing at IDG’s Infoworld. Away from his professional work, Allan’s interests focus mainly around his family life.
