Lisa Frankovitch Appointed CEO of Uplogix
Experienced executive to drive growth in a $2B market for local management solutions for connected devices in the Internet of Things
AUSTIN, Texas (October 30, 2014) – Uplogix today announced the appointment of Lisa Frankovitch as CEO of the Austin-based maker of local management solutions that operate independently of the network itself to manage connected devices.
Frankovitch has worked with Uplogix for over five years, first as an advisor during her time with Adams Capital Management (ACM) where she served as director of corporate partner strategy. In 2011, Frankovitch joined Uplogix as vice president of business development, and added responsibilities for sales and marketing in 2012. During that time, the company has deployed its solution across thousands of locations, including more than 1,400 branches of the US Social Security Agency, the company’s largest deployment to date.
“It’s my strong belief in the value proposition of Uplogix that has guided me into roles of increasing responsibility and involvement with the company,” said Lisa Frankovitch, Uplogix CEO. “I’m looking forward to driving the profitable growth of Uplogix and contributing to the success of our customers.”
“Furthermore, with the exponential growth of connected devices in the Internet of Things, Uplogix is uniquely positioned to impact what will be an organization’s single most important asset—the network and communications layer of its technology infrastructure.”
In addition to her time at ACM, earlier in her career, Frankovitch started several business units and served in multiple management roles for iGATE Capital where she was a member of the executive team that lead two successful IPOs of iGATE subsidiaries. Before that, Frankovitch worked with GE Capital, Warburg Pincus, Apar Infotech, Flashline, BEA Systems and Revenue Technologies.
