Former Sierra CEO Joins Blackline Safety Board of Directors
Tuesday, September 13, 2022 | Comments

Blackline Safety appointed Jason W. Cohenour, former president and CEO at Sierra Wireless, as a member of its board of directors.

“Having followed Blackline for a number of years as a successful hardware-enabled SaaS company with over 1,000 customers around the world, I am enthusiastic to support the business at this stage of its evolution,” Cohenour said. “I look forward to joining the Board and working with the Blackline team to help the company execute with confidence and further its mission to ensure workers get home safe.”

Cohenour brings many years of executive leadership, sales, operations, and international mergers and acquisition (M&A) experience to the Blackline Safety Board. He previously served as president, CEO and director at Sierra Wireless from 2005 to 2018. While CEO, Cohenour led a successful business turnaround, resulting in revenue growth of nearly 800% to more than CAD $1 billion. Cohenour also serves on the boards of CalAmp and RF Industries.

“Adding Jason to our board at this pivotal time is ideal timing for Blackline,” said Blackline Chair and CEO Cody Slater. “Jason’s executive leadership experience, background in IoT, mobile communication and semiconductors through his work at Sierra, and guidance as a director in public companies will have a direct impact as Blackline matures into its next stage of sustainable growth.”

Cohenour’s appointment brings Blackline Safety’s board of directors to eight. Other members include Slater and six independent directors: Cheemin Bo-Linn, Dr. John Finbow, Brad Gilewich, Michael Hayduk, Robert Herdman and Barbara Holzapfel.
