Simpson held key positions at Motorola and AT&T in product management, sales, marketing, business development and engineering. While at Motorola, he led the effort to launch the world's first 500-channel digital TV system. Simpson holds a BSEE from Northwestern University and an MBA from the University of San Diego.
