AudioEye, Inc. Appoints Paul Arena as Executive Chairman
TUCSON, AZ -- Jan 30, 2014 -- AudioEye®, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye" or the "Company"), creator of the Audio Internet patented audio browsing and automated publishing technology platform, today announced that Paul Arena has been appointed Executive Chairman and elected to the Company's board of directors.
Mr. Arena succeeds Craig Columbus, one of AudioEye's co-founders, who will continue to serve on the Company's board of directors along with Dr. Carr Bettis, Edward Withrow, III, and AudioEye executives Nathaniel Bradley, Sean Bradley and James Crawford.
"We are excited that Paul is joining the company as Executive Chairman," noted Nathaniel Bradley, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "Craig Columbus, our former Chairman, started with AudioEye prior to our incorporation during a nascent and fledgling stage of our development, at a time when our technological innovations were a decade ahead of today's robust and emerging market opportunities. We would not be where we are without Craig's tireless service and exceptional support of AudioEye as our Chairman over the years. Craig has deeply impacted our culture and the trajectory of AudioEye's business model. We are honored to have Craig remain as one of the Company's independent directors."
"Paul Arena, our new Executive Chairman, shares our enthusiasm for AudioEye's core mission of advancing and leveraging, on behalf of our shareholders, the value generated from our ownership of industry-first and thought-leading mobile software," continued Bradley. "Our team's guiding light is true innovation and industry leadership, and Paul has a demonstrated track record of success and is well-known throughout the technology and telecommunications industries. His abilities to identify strategic opportunities, enhance shareholder value, and manage intellectual property portfolios are consistent with our corporate objectives. We are gratified that Paul has elected to spend all of his time helping to grow AudioEye."
Paul Arena, newly appointed Executive Chairman of AudioEye, stated, "My enthusiasm for AudioEye's technology business is shared by each and every other member of our Board of Directors, senior management team and our incredible employees. We have all established aggressive goals for our future growth and profitability and I look forward to contributing towards the achievement of AudioEye's objectives in a number of ways, including strategic partnering and third-party license opportunities."
"It has been my pleasure to serve AudioEye in its formative stages as we pursued our initial strategic objectives," stated Craig Columbus. "Trying to develop technology solutions that can improve the lives of others, such as people with visual impairments and children on the autism spectrum, has always been a very personal and passionate issue for me. The current management is well-positioned to realize the Company's ultimate potential, and I look forward to their future accomplishments."
The Company considers the past twelve months a period of "evolution and progress", during which AudioEye was spun-out from its previous ownership, became a public entity, completed its interim funding requirements, launched its Audio Internet Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") platform and developed its initial sales strategies. This transition, coupled with increased investment in the Company's SaaS technology platform, has enhanced product functionality, improved customer service and bolstered sales and marketing initiatives, with progress in each of these areas validated by impressive growth of AudioEye's client base.
During the past 30 years, Mr. Arena has served in executive management positions for a number of private and publicly-traded companies and provided corporate finance, syndication and distribution services within the investment banking industry. From June 2010 to September 2012, Mr. Arena was Chief Executive Officer for Augme Technologies, Inc. (now Hipcricket, Inc.) during a period when the annualized revenue "run rate" increased from less than $1 million to $30 million within ten quarters. He was also Chairman of the Board of Augme from September 2011 through September 2012 and remained on the board through the end of December 2012. From February 2002 to March 2010, Mr. Arena held various executive positions, including Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, and Principal Financial Officer, at Geos Communications (formerly i2 Telecom International) and its subsidiaries. From May 2000 to present, he served as Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, President and owner of AIM Group, Inc., an investment holding company. Before founding i2 Telecom International, Mr. Arena served in various executive capacities, including Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, at Cereus Technology Partners, Inc. and its subsidiaries (May 1991 to April 2000). Cereus, which secured a listing on the Nasdaq National Market, achieved a market capitalization in excess of $350 million prior to Mr. Arena's departure.
During 1994, Mr. Arena was a financial advisor to, and became a minority equity owner in, Great Lakes Pulp & Fiber, Inc., a $224 million project financing and one of the world's largest paper recycling facilities. From June 1990 to August 1991, Mr. Arena was a financial consultant, and from February 1988 to January 1990, he served as Senior Vice President and Partner of Gulfstream Financial Associates, Inc., a subsidiary of the Kemper Group. During the period 1982 through 1988, Mr. Arena held Vice President positions with three New York Stock Exchange member investment firms, including Cralin & Co.; Drexel, Burnham, Lambert, Inc.; and Interstate Securities Corporation.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
