Adding Joel to our leadership team, coupled with the opening of our new office in Victoria, truly enhances our ability to build global awareness and market share.”  

As NetMotion’s VP of Global Marketing, Windels is tasked with nurturing and growing a world-class marketing team that can help put NetMotion on the global stage.  His extensive work in European markets will help internationalize the company and bring a broader outlook across the NetMotion leadership team. The Carlyle Group-backed technology firm will be leaning on Windels’ experience in fast-growth environments to accelerate demand generation and forge a new strategic direction for the company as it continues to expand into the operational intelligence B2B space.
