Friedman graduated with a B.A. in economics from the University of Virginia before earning his MBA at George Washington University.
“I’m looking forward to jumping right in with Savi,” Friedman said. “There’s so much potential in the Internet of Things and the analytics technology surrounding it. Savi has been at the forefront of sensor use from the beginning. I am pleased I can bring some of my own experience in rapidly growing new technology adoption in both Federal and commercial business into play.”
