"There's no doubt that mobile adoption will continue to grow, creating a higher demand for reliable connectivity," said Lancaster. "Through thoughtful engineering and meticulous testing, 2016's product roadmap is going to push the envelope of what we've already achieved, with products that are easier to install and provide even more signal coverage. While Wilson has been a leader in the space for many years, we are still just getting started. In the near future, we will show the market that our strength, passion and knowledge are better than ever, through our quality products that will continue to enhance people's lives."

Lancaster joins Wilson Electronics after 15 years at Logitech, where he most recently served as vice president and general manager of its Harmony Home Control and New Ventures groups.
