Strickland founded M37 Ventures, a next-generation management and technology consulting company that helps businesses implement digital and technology strategy at the executive level. Prior to M37 Ventures, Strickland served as CTO of Leap Wireless / Cricket Communications, CIO and senior vice president of T-Mobile, and CIO of EchoStar – all leaders in wireless and satellite communications.
Motive Infrastructure Solutions combines the entrepreneurial spirit of a small firm with the experience and financial strength of a premier EPC solutions provider. Last year, Motive Infrastructure Solutions acquired DS Energy Solutions (July 2020) and AWS Communications (November 2020), respectively. As the company grows and its operations scale, the addition of Strickland reinforces Istwan’s commitment to invest in leadership that will keep the company ahead of the competition and at the forefront of the industry.
