Ametsreiter is joined by Cody Sanford, former T-Mobile Executive VP, and Mike Doonan, Managing Partner at SPMB Executive Search on the advisory board. Tony Werner, former CTO of Comcast who was appointed as an independent director on Plume’s board of directors earlier in 2022, will chair this advisory committee.

Plume currently powers more than 44 million active residential and small business locations with its cloud-managed services, with more than 350 service provider customers.

“Through its innovative suites of solutions for smart spaces, Plume has already taken consumer experience to the next level. I’m excited to advise this fast-growing company that is redefining the standards of the smart home and small business, and look forward to leveraging my experience in consumer products and marketing to assist Fahri and his team,” said Sanford.

“I’m thrilled with the opportunity to advise such a talented and committed team. With a data and people-driven mission, I’m confident Plume will continue to achieve extraordinary milestones to benefit consumers and the service providers who serve them,” said Doonan.

“I want to thank Hannes, Cody, and Mike for joining me on this exciting journey. Throughout my time at Comcast, and this year via more direct engagement with Plume, I’m ever more confident that this company is set to shake up the status quo. It’s exciting and fun to be working alongside such an innovative team which is now even stronger with the formation of this advisory board,” said Werner.

Fahri Diner, Founder and CEO of Plume, said: “I’m honoured to welcome this group of talented and vastly experienced leaders who will provide their expertise and advice to my executive team through the next phase of our growth. I am very confident that their combined knowledge will be invaluable as we continue to upend the industry and put the consumer at the focus of everything we do.”
