“While there are significant immediate opportunities for Armored Things to help large venues and campuses reopen safely in the age of COVID, I’m even more excited about the longer-term potential for crowd intelligence,” said Schneider. “The ability to anticipate the flow of people enables so much innovation in the way venues, campuses and businesses can optimize operations and improve the customer experience. In addition, they have a dynamic CEO who is laying the right foundation for long-term success. I’m really excited to work with the team to help their go-to-market efforts.”

Schneider joins six existing members on Armored Things’ Board of Advisors, including national homeland security leader Juliette Kayyem, leading higher education CIO Gordon Wishon, Association of Luxury Suite Directors (ALSD) founder Bill Dorsey, renowned cybersecurity expert and former CTO of Resilient Systems (IBM) Bruce Schneier, former Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, and former US Congressman George Nethercutt.

“David’s success ramping the go-to-market efforts of software companies brings a really valuable and additive perspective to our Board of Advisors,” said Julie Johnson Roberts, Armored Things co-founder and CEO. “His philosophy of ensuring the intersection of sales, customer and team success has paid huge dividends for companies throughout his career. Adding his insights to the deep expertise of our existing Advisors in the security and operational aspects of venue management will be a tremendous asset to our team.”
