pdvWireless announced that company Vice Chairman Morgan O'Brien is succeeding John C. Pescatore as the company's CEO. Pescatore will continue to serve on the board of directors as vice chairman.

O'Brien will assume the role of CEO and work closely with Pescatore to ensure a smooth transition, a company statement said.

“Mr. O'Brien's vision, strategy and execution track record further aligns the company with its highest priority of achieving success with its regulatory initiatives aimed at modernizing the 900 MHz spectrum band, enabling it to provide advanced, innovative and secure solutions to meet the long-term wireless needs of critical infrastructure and enterprise entities,” the statement said.

“John has been instrumental in transforming pdvWireless from a private to public company,” said Brian McAuley, chairman of the board. “Under his leadership, the company raised over $300 million to fund its strategic initiatives, established its TeamConnect business in seven major markets and advanced its FCC regulatory initiative by forging relationships with partners in the critical infrastructure and enterprise space.”

O'Brien said he has been directing pdvWireless's efforts to obtain, and then to craft, the company’s regulatory initiative to modernize the 900 MHz band of spectrum and to advance the company's aspiration to make 6 megahertz of broadband spectrum available nationwide for critical infrastructure wireless systems.

“As CEO, I will continue those efforts while directing our team as a whole toward achieving our stated initiatives,” O’Brian said. “I thank our board for giving me the opportunity to lead the company into the future."
