Zander has joined the company's board of directors. Zander has spent more than 35 years in the technology sector. He has played a key role in shaping some of the major paradigm shifts in technology that impact the world today. These include the move from mainframes to minicomputers; minicomputers to workstations; PCs to networking and to the Internet; hardware to software; and the revolution in wireless devices and mobility.

Today he is a director of Netezza Corp. and was most recently announced as director of NetSuite Inc., a leading vendor of on-demand, integrated business management software suites. Zander also served as chairman of the Technology CEO Council in Washington, D.C. and has been on a number of civic and philanthropic boards.

Awarepoint is growing its healthcare vision to a new generation of connected health solutions and actively building an ecosystem of partners that will enable it to offer its technologies for use in a wider range of applications and service offerings.

"Awarepoint's success is already remarkable. With the current attention being focused on opportunities for wireless communications in healthcare, Awarepoint is poised for significant growth. I look forward to sharing my experience and advice at this inflection point in technology solutions for the worldwide healthcare market," said Zander.
