Rich Carlson Chief Executive Officer

As CEO, Rich Carlson brings more than 20 years’ experience in the software and wireless space to Savi. Rich has many passions — leading technology and Internet of Things (IoT) companies to their full potential, cheering on University of Virginia athletics, and participating in endurance sports. He enjoys putting strategic planning, go-to-market strategies, and revenue generation expertise to work to propel companies to high growth — it’s a rush that doesn’t grow old.

In 2012, Rich founded the Neon Dolphin Technology Group, a consultancy that advises and helps grow IoT technology and software firms. Before founding Neon Dolphin, Rich spent eight years as CEO at Wireless Matrix Corporation, where he transformed the business from a niche satellite provider to a leader in the fleet management software-as-a-service (SaaS) industry.

Born and raised in New York, Rich has a B.A. in History from the University of Virginia, and an M.B.A from Georgetown University. Rich loves world literature and world music (acid jazz, Brazilian, dub, reggae, and electronica). He is a long-time fan of Thievery Corporation, a DC-based recording artist, and DJ collective. When he is not training for an Ironman Triathlon, Rich, his wife Lisa, and five children are planning their next travel adventure.
