Andrew%20Parolin.JPGstrengthens its management team with the addition of three new faces. Andrew Parolin (top left) joins the company as VP of business development, responsible for overseeing Wi-LAN’s patent acquisition program. He arrives at the company by way of SiGe Semiconductor, where he served as director of wireless data products. Andrew has substantial technical expertise in a number of Wi-LAN’s current technologies, including Curt%20Dodd.JPGWi-Fi, WiMAX and CDMA. He earned a MBA from the uOttawa, a master of applied science from Queen’s, and a bachelor of engineering from the Technical University of Nova Scotia. He is an avid sailor, skier and a soccer enthusiast. Curt Dodd (right) joins the company as director, patents and counsel, and will be directly involved in many of Wi-LAN’s key business activities, including patent licensing discussions and litigation management. Curt has considerable experience in Wi-Fi and WiMAX technologies, and comes to Wi-LAN from Bob%20Kedrosky.JPGNortel. A patent attorney, engineer and registered patent agent, Curt has authored several papers on US and Canadian patent laws. He has a law degree from the University of New Brunswick and a bachelor of engineering degree (mechanical) from Carleton. In his spare time, Curtis enjoys surfing and playing guitar. Bob Kedrosky (bottom left) hires on as director of human resources and corporate services, assuming overall responsibility for most corporate services functions and thereby allowing other executives to focus almost exclusively on licensing. He comes to Wi-LAN from Bell Security Solutions, where he was senior HR director. An avid golfer, skier, cyclist, basketball player and handyman, Bob says his greatest accomplishments are his children, a 12-year-old daughter and 10-year-old triplets. He’s also a coach in the Stittsville Minor Softball Association.
