Former Clearwire CEO Prusch tapped to run NetMotion

Former Clearwire CEO Erik Prusch scored a new job, though with the same title. Prusch is now CEO of NetMotion Wireless, which provides enterprise mobility management software and solutions.

Prusch succeeds Chris Gibbons, who was tapped with the interim-CEO tag following NetMotion’s 2012 acquisition by Clearlake Capital. Gibbons, who was an operating advisor to Clearlake, will continue to serve as chairman of NetMotion’s board.

Prusch lost his position at Clearwire following Sprint’s acquisition last summer of the remaining stake in the company it did not already control. That deal was quickly followed by Japan’s Softbank acquiring controlling interest in Sprint.

Prusch was named CEO of Clearwire in mid-2011, replacing interim CEO John Stanton, who took the temporary position following the sudden resignation of Clearwire’s former CEO Bill Morrow, who according to Clearwire has left the company for personal reasons. Prusch originally joined Clearwire as CFO in 2009, and was promoted to COO in early 2011 at the same time Stanton came in as CEO.
