iRobot has added Mohamad Ali, CEO of Carbonite, Inc., a technology company that provides cloud and hybrid backup and recovery solutions for home and business, to its board of directors.
Since he joined Carbonite as CEO in 2014, iRobot noted that Ali has led the company’s continued growth, serving the evolving technology needs of small and mid-size businesses and consumers.
Previously, Ali served as chief strategy officer at Hewlett-Packard and president of Avaya Global Services, and has also served in senior leadership roles at IBM, where he acquired numerous companies to build IBM’s analytics and big data business.
“Mohamad’s compelling track record of leadership, operating expertise and industry vision, across companies big and small, makes him an excellent addition to our board,” said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot. “His experience with software, and in particular cloud infrastructure and data analytics, is important as iRobot looks to advance development efforts in mapping and other areas that will give our robots a richer understanding of their environment.”
“As a company that is already leading the way in leveraging the cloud and analytics to develop new robotic technologies across multiple markets, I am excited to be joining the board of directors at iRobot,” said Ali.
