Cambridge Wireless appoints three new board members

Technology networking group Cambridge Wireless (CW) has appointed Stephen Pattison, Arm Ltd’s vice president of public affairs, to its board.

Pattison’s public affairs work for Arm includes contributions to global public policy thinking, with particular focus on London, Brussels, Washington and increasingly China. His work encompasses issues such as the Internet of Things, smart cities, data protection, energy efficiency and security.

Mischa Dohler, professor of wireless communications at King’s College London, and OpenSignal chairwoman Shirin Dehghan will also join CW’s board as it looks to broaden its expertise to reflect its growing membership.

Pattison said: “Ecosystems are vital to success in the digital sector. They help promote innovation and stimulate awareness of what the market wants. CW does a fantastic job of bringing a highly influential ecosystem together to work on the technical and market issues that really matter for our digital future.”

Raj Gawera, chairman of CW, added: “As the CW membership evolves and strengthens, so does the board and I’m delighted to welcome Shirin, Mischa and Stephen to the team. With Stephen and Mischa’s combined expertise steering subjects like 5G and the Internet of Things – their insights will be invaluable. Couple this with Shirin’s engineering acumen and passion for entrepreneurship, we’re fortunate to have this amount of talent on the board.”
