Wrap Technologies appointed former First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet Authority) President TJ Kennedy as CEO and Kevin Mullins as president, effective immediately.

The appointments of Kennedy and Mullins reflect Wrap’s commitment to evolving and maturing as a technology company in the rapidly growing public-safety solutions market. They have decades of experience helping technology and public-safety companies build growth-oriented cultures and platforms around innovative products and solutions. Wrap’s board of directors determined that Kennedy and Mullins have the right backgrounds and expertise to grow global demand for the BolaWrap 150 and ultimately diversify the Company’s suite of offerings for existing customers and new segments of the market.

During the board’s search process, Kennedy and Mullins demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the steps required to attain scale and market leadership over the long term. They are committed to implementing a structured operating plan to enhance Wrap’s capabilities in areas such as research and development (R&D), sales, supply chain and strategic investments. The board is confident that this rebuilt management team will bring a new level of strategic thinking and operational expertise to Wrap.

“Our board has spent the past 12 weeks searching for the right leaders to oversee Wrap’s evolution into a more dynamic and diversified public safety solutions provider,” said Wrap Chairman of the Board Wayne Walker. “We are pleased that our thorough process has resulted in the appointments of TJ and Kevin, who are uniquely equipped to develop a broader set of technology-driven offerings to complement the BolaWrap 150. TJ and Kevin bring proven track records of helping companies innovate, commercialize, and sell high quality products and services to global law enforcement. They have also demonstrated to us that they have a firm understanding of Wrap’s opportunity set and see practical ways to meet the needs of existing and new customers.”

Kennedy has nearly three decades of experience in the technology and public-safety sectors. He brings unique perspective as a law enforcement officer in the field. Kennedy previously led one of the largest public safety technology endeavors in recent history, the FirstNet Authority, which provides mission-critical connectivity to police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel across the United States. Additionally, Kennedy has served as a member of Wrap’s board since 2021, providing him unique insight into the company’s go-forward opportunities. Most recently, he was the CEO, president and a director of Qumu, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company, since July 2020.

Mullins is an experienced corporate executive with a track record of taking public-safety technology companies from concept to growth to profitability. Some of his notable accomplishments include creating an innovative body-worn camera and bringing a SaaS-based digital evidence management system company to market. He possesses a deep understanding of global public-safety technology industries with extended sales cycles, and city and county budgetary requirements. For the past eight years, he has served as the president and CEO of Intrensic, a premier digital evidence and video management software solutions company. During his tenure, he led the development of new technology and set the direction of the business and was instrumental in marketing its solutions to public-safety agencies.
