Tektronix, Read-Rite Corporation and Flexstar Technology.

These leadership appointments follow the unveiling of Airship’s
new brand
last month, conveying its dramatic growth in engagement
solutions spanning any digital channel and its pivotal role in fueling
customer-centric digital transformation initiatives for world-leading
brands. Earlier this year, the company acquired Accengage
to form the world’s largest mobile customer engagement company and
solidify its global market dominance.
