But in these cases
We still have judgment here; that we but teach
Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return
To plague the inventor: this even-handed justice
Commends the ingredients of our poison’d chalice
To our own lips.
Act I Scene VII of Macbeth
Does James Granger, announced today as Wireless Ronin’s new president and CEO know what he has let himself in for?
According to Granger in the statement today, “This is an exciting time in the digital signage industry and for Wireless Ronin. I’m happy to be part of this talented team. I believe the company has tremendous growth potential, and I look forward to building its success and shaping its future.”
James C. (Jim) Granger of course succeeds Stephen Birke, who has served as Wireless Ronin’s interim president and CEO, since September 2008.
Mr. Granger we are told brings to Wireless Ronin more than 25 years of experience in the technology industry, most recently as president of Toptech Systems, Inc., a provider of software, hardware and data services where he was responsible for restoring company growth and increasing bottom line profitability – he’s going to need that at Ronin, Ed 😉
Prior to Toptech, Granger was director, president and CEO of Norstan Inc., a communications solutions and services company.
Wireless Ronin board chairman, Greg Barnum was quoted as saying “Jim’s extensive public company experience and background in building strong organizations will serve Wireless Ronin well as the company moves forward …. highly respected in the investment community”
If the board had half a brain they would get someone in with media experience or even agency experience, just in order to change the direction of the company, someone from a tech company – Norstan we think was a company that ran premise ethernet cable for schools, i.e. zero link to Digital Signage is perhaps suicide – or should that be seppuku, Ed
