Sierra Wireless Announces Planned Retirement of Dave McLennan, Chief Financial Officer in mid-2020

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--December 5, 2019--Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the leading IoT solutions provider that combines devices, network services and software to unlock value in the connected economy, today announced that after 16 years of dedicated service as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Dave McLennan has decided it is time to retire. By providing a lengthy notice period, Dave will be assisting in the Company’s transition to a new Chief Financial Officer. The Company has engaged a global executive search firm and a formal process has commenced to recruit a replacement. The Company expects to complete the transition by the middle of 2020.

Dave has held the CFO role since early 2004, leading the Company through a sustained period of market leadership. During this time, he helped the Company grow its revenue base organically and most recently led a series of strategic acquisitions that have established the Company’s MVNO platform in Europe and North America. Also, as Chief Transformation Officer over the past year, he has led a number of significant programs to help improve overall operating efficiency.

"Dave has built a strong foundation for our financial operations and has been crucial to Sierra Wireless’ growth and overall success these past 16 years," said Sierra Wireless President and CEO, Kent Thexton. “He is a strong leader who understands our business, clients and communities.”

Kent Thexton and the Board of Directors of Sierra Wireless sincerely thank Dave for his dedicated service and helping the Company transition to a new CFO and wish him well in his well-earned retirement.
