NEW YORK, NY– 151 Advisors, an IoT strategy consulting firm for mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud-based software and technology companies, today announced the expansion of its leadership team with the addition of Laurie Lamberth and Jay Rector as Associate Partners. The new team members strengthen 151 Advisors’ management experience and bring additional expertise as the company continues to assist technology companies across the world in solving critical business challenges.
Rector has over 25 years of experience in the wireless industry and helped introduce GPS, location-based services and wireless data to the U.S. auto manufacturers in the mid-90’s. In addition, he wrote the go-to-market strategy for mass market wireless data at BellSouth Mobility in early 2000. Following his key involvement in the BellSouth merger with SBC to form Cingular where he led New Product Development, the infrastructure and processes he created at modern day AT&T now generate billions of dollars in annual recurring data revenue. Rector is a pioneer in mass market products commercializing browsers on phones, interactive text messaging, server to mobile API transactions, location-based services, connected-car programs and, most recently, innovations for indoor wireless using small cells.
“Jay brings immensely strategic management experience to the team and has a proven history of success that will be a huge asset in ensuring a record-breaking year in 2015 for 151 Advisors,” said Bill Rom, Managing Partner at 151 Advisors. “We are confident that he will be able to utilize his vast experience, creativity, and impeccable professionalism and client servicing skills to grow and expand business for 151 Advisors.”

Lamberth regularly publishes, speaks, and is interviewed for print, radio, and TV on a variety of topics related to wireless, location-based services, privacy, IoT and next-gen telecom. Over the course of her career, she held a number of leadership roles, including launching U.S. tier 1 mobile operator Nextel Communication’s first market, propelling Nextel’s and Sprint Nextel’s growth in various marketing and strategic partnership positions, and leading their enterprise business development team for seven years, including five years leading the M2M business development team.

This year, more than just listing the industry’s top 100 technology innovators, each company is being ranked on their game-changing technologies, products, services, and commitment to enabling connectivity as determined by the editors of Connected World. Published since 2003, this annual list has recognized IoT consulting companies across the globe. This ranking is considered the most definitive and influential directory when it comes to looking at the shifting demands of the market.
“The CW 100 is a very elite group among the technology elite. The real leaders on this list are driven by imagination and creativity. It’s not all about profits. Far more impressive are the smaller companies this year that found their way into the market and are advancing their position, and staking their claim as one of the elite,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine and president, Specialty Publishing Co.
The CW 100 Top 10 List: Cisco Systems
On this year’s list, M&A’s (mergers and acquisitions) showed the fourth highest at 27, trailing 2013 which saw the most notable growth at 41. Based on looking at the market potential and organizations desire to acquire, the industry is on pace for at least a 17% M&A increase during same time period over the previous year. Since Connected World began tracking M&A’s in 2003, there has been a grand total to date of 262, including companies that offer software, hardware, and communications services.
The list is largely an illustration of the marketplace as it stands today. For 2015, the CW 100 sees LTE (long-term evolution) chipset makers and other providers making their mark with more companies dominating the list. In fact, many smaller companies and even some fairly new faces have made their presence known, entering the market with a vengeance and unseeding many traditional M2M players in an effort to make an even stronger impact in M2M and IoT.
OEMs (original-equipment manufacturers) and application software providers have popped onto this list unlike ever before, showing their commitment to changing the way they service products and deliver solutions to their customers, which, as a result, has helped some to take very prominent positions, perhaps, in an effort to make their presence known in M2M and IoT.
The 2015 CW 100 can also be found in the Oct/Nov issue of Connected World magazine. The issue is available as a back issue or by downloading the Connected World app in the iTunes App Store or Google Play. Simply search for Connected World.
