Prior to joining Airties, he spent over a decade at Liberty Global, most recently serving as product director of connectivity platforms, where he oversaw their product development efforts for in-home connectivity across seven countries for both residential and SoHo customers.

In this role, he led development efforts across networks, CPE, cloud services and data insights, deploying Wi-Fi, 5G, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence technologies.

He has also served as head of product development for Liberty Global’s Wi-Fi product portfolio and ran operations throughout Europe, Asia, the US and Africa during his career.

At AirTies he will report to CEO Philippe Alcaras.

“We are very proud to have Nicolas Fortineau join our senior leadership team. Our mission is to empower service providers to deliver the best managed Wi-Fi experience for their customers, and Nicolas’ unique expertise will help us further deliver on that commitment. He brings a global operator’s perspective, extensive knowledge on the evolution of the connected home, and the ability to articulate a customer-centric vision. We look forward to what he will bring to our team, customers, and partners,” said Alcaras.

“Connectivity is an essential part of daily life, and I am excited to join a company that is so relentlessly dedicated to helping operators improve the way people connect, work, play, and learn. We are living through a profound transformation of users’ connectivity behaviours. It offers broadband operators a unique opportunity to satisfy those with a best-in-class user experience fuelled by innovation. Airties has always been recognized as the gold standard for operators seeking the best possible connectivity experience, and I am excited about playing my part to help continue and enhance that legacy of success and innovation,” said Fortineau.
