 “John’s diverse background and experience perfectly align with our current needs and objectives. His financial and operational experiences speak for themselves. However, he has also demonstrated the ability to step outside those roles to help companies drive significant revenue growth,” noted Ronin’s president and CEO, Scott Koller. “Having the position of chief operating officer reestablished will also help support Wireless Ronin’s aggressive growth initiatives. In the near-term, he will be responsible for facilitating the integration of Broadcast International (BI), a transformative merger we expect to close this quarter.”

Walpuck commented: “I am very excited to join Ronin at this pivotal stage of the company’s development, especially given the pending merger with Broadcast International. We believe that adding Broadcast’s technology to the RoninCast software platform will create the most comprehensive offering in the industry. It will also position the company to capitalize on additional technology and growth opportunities in the constantly evolving industry landscape.”
