Atlanta, GA – (Business Wire) Future Technologies Venture, LLC. (FT), has taken steps forward in its strategic growth plan by appointing new management team members to help FT execute on its geographical expansion and to further strengthen its market position in 4G, 5G, and IOT spaces, with a specific focus on complex multi-technology networks for automation and autonomous deployments.

“Future Technologies feels well positioned for strategic growth based upon the positive market conditions in two primary areas: mobile carrier upgrades of 4G and 5G and the IOT / private networks space with the ongoing network upgrades to support automation and autonomous applications,” said David Rumore, Chief Revenue Officer.

“With our almost 20-year-old corporate platform, we feel ready to support the market demand for competent resources through our historical investments in our self-performance / in-house field service team. With this existing scale, bundled with our lineage in the private network markets deploying complex multi-technology solutions, including private LTE, fiber, fixed and mobile broadband, we feel we are in a unique position to provide a strong end-to-end solution to address the growing market opportunity to assess, design, implement, and sustain the networks of the future,” said Peter Cappiello, Chief Executive Officer.

“Based upon this market opportunity we have on-boarded several strategic management team members with great track records and pre-existing relationships with Future Technologies. We feel very fortunate to have them join our team to help us execute on this strategic growth plan,” Mr. Cappiello added.

Chris York, Vice President of Sales, will have responsibility to develop and to execute on FT’s sales and marketing plan for growth in each of FT’s target vertical markets (Mining, Transportation, Utility, Service Provider, and Oil & Gas).

Robert has over 10 years of experience in the private network area within the government market where he had responsibility to design, implement, and sustain complex multi-technology (Fiber, Cellular, Broadband) projects. With this experience, Robert is well positioned to help FT execute on its growth plan as a lead systems integrator across each of our private network reference architecture types, including Private LTE, CBTC, PTC, Automation, and Autonomous network deployments.
