PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 15, 2020 – Tangoe®, one complete solution for order, invoice, inventory and expense management across telecom, mobile and cloud environments, today announced the appointment of board chairman Dave Hansen  to Interim CEO, effective immediately. Hansen takes the helm from Bob Irwin, who is leaving the company to pursue a new opportunity. Hansen will work closely with Tangoe’s leadership team and board of directors to ensure seamless continuity for the business as they mount a search for a new CEO.

“In today’s landscape, in which businesses are navigating a challenging economy, the category of technology expense management has never been more important. This presents immense opportunity and a bright future for Tangoe, as the company helps customers simplify complex technology environments, work smarter and save money,” Hansen said. “Together with the board and leadership team, I look forward to executing on Tangoe’s clear, customer-centric, industry-leading business strategy designed for sustained growth and maintaining its category leadership.”

Outgoing CEO Irwin assumed the role in 2017 and since then, Tangoe has doubled down on delivering a superior customer experience, developed best-in-class technology expense management solutions, hired and retained top talent and maintained stability in the midst of a pandemic.

“Tangoe has the strong support and confidence from Marlin Equity Partners, the best and brightest employees in the industry and category-leading customers.” Hansen said. “We remain committed to them – as always – during this time of transition.”
