In an emailed press release, MOBILTEX (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), an XPV Water Partners company, announced the appointment of Edward Quilty as the company’s new chief executive officer (CEO), effective January 9, 2024, and will continue in his previous capacity on the MOBILTEX Board of Directors. Quilty succeeded Marc Bracken, who will continue to provide leadership as an active member of the MOBILTEX Board.

Quilty brings decades of executive experience to this role and has a proven track record of leading highly innovative, world-class industrial internet of things (IIoT) organizations. He served as CEO and founder of Aquatic Informatics (AQI), interim CEO of Semios Biotechnologies, and as president within the Danaher Corporation. Under Quilty’s leadership, AQI grew to be the largest water data management, analytics, and compliance software company in the world.

“I am excited to be in a position to lead the MOBILTEX team as the company continues its growth and diversification strategy,” Quilty says. “MOBILTEX has a long history of engineering innovative field and cloud-connected technologies that deliver significant operational, safety, and ESG [environmental, social, and governance] benefits to the energy sector, water utilities, and critical infrastructure operations around the globe. MOBILTEX is strongly positioned in high-growth and underpenetrated markets, and I look forward to the opportunity to take this well-established organization to the next level. Together with our talented global team, we will continue to rapidly grow, through innovation and acquisitions, to deliver the AI-driven remote monitoring solutions of the future to our customers worldwide.”

“After a thorough evaluation process, the board is pleased that Ed Quilty has agreed to assume leadership of MOBILTEX as we continue our growth and diversification strategy," says Khalil Maalouf, investment partner at XPV Water Partners. “Ed's extensive experience in the areas of strategic development, technology, finance, operations, and sales and marketing has prepared him to lead MOBILTEX in both existing businesses and new markets. Ed's M&A [mergers and acquisitions] experience also fits well with the company's continuing plans for diversification and expansion.”

“On behalf of XPV and the board, I want to thank Marc Bracken for his tremendous contributions to MOBILTEX over the past five years,” Maalouf adds. “Marc has been an integral part of the company's dynamic transformation. During his tenure, we made incredible strides in advancing enterprise-wide modernization, achieving world-class operational excellence, and expanding into strategic international markets. Marc’s steadfast leadership has been crucial to effectively positioning the company for our next growth phase. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Marc on the MOBILTEX Board of Directors. ”
