"Joan not only has a wealth of experience in the connected home market, but also brings to our organization a deep insight into the cable industry, one of our core markets, making her the ideal candidate to help shape the company's strategic roadmap,” Airgain president and CEO Charles Myers, said in a statement.

San Diego-based Airgain said its antennas are embedded in a wide range of products, including set-top boxes, access points, routers, gateways, media adapters, digital televisions, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. In October, Airgain said it was closing in on the shipment of its 25 millionth antenna for the smart TV market.

Airgain also makes external dipole antennas for indoor and outdoor WLAN and small cell applications.

Notably, Airgain is currently seeking a regional sales manager and looking for someone with established relationships with tier 1 MSOs or carriers, such as Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, and CenturyLink.

Airgain posted Q2 revenues of $9.9 million, up 63% year-on-year. It’s scheduled to post Q3 results on November 10.

Gillman also serves on the board of Centrica PLC, an energy and services company based in the U.K.  She received a bachelors in English and Pre-Med from the College of the Holy Cross and a masters in Legislative Affairs from George Washington University.
