Nanosatellite IoT connectivity firm Myriota has appointed experienced sales executive Barbara Swanson as its chief revenue officer with a view to increasing its income.

A statement from the company said Swanson, who has specialised in software-as-a-service technology for the last two decades, would lead the marketing and sales teams.

Her most recent job was vice-president, Sales & Managing Director, Asia-Pacific for Germany-based TeamViewer, a leader in IoT and produces remote control, monitoring and collaboration software.

Swanson was transferred to Sydney by West Corporation in 2002 to lead the company's Asia-Pacific sales organisation and increased revenue from a shade over $20 million to more than $150 million in five years.

Myriota chief executive and co-founder Alex Grant said: "Barbara Swanson brings vital skills and experience to Myriota, at a time when we are looking to rapidly expand both regionally and internationally.

“As CRO, Barbara will be instrumental in architecting our global business development strategy while expanding and leading our sales and marketing teams.

"With the rapid expansion of IoT there is huge international interest and demand for low-cost satellite connectivity, and with Barbara Swanson on board, we are ideally placed to take advantage of this emerging market."

Swanson commented: "Joining Myriota is a new and exciting opportunity for me to bring my skills to help grow one of the most exciting scale-ups in the international space sector.

"I’m looking forward to working with the extremely talented and dedicated team at Myriota to take the company global. Space communications is a very dynamic and fast-growing industry to be in as we enter the Fourth Industrial Age."
