iRobot Board of Directors Now Includes Paul Sagan

“Given iRobot’s current market position and projected global growth, the time was right to enhance our board with additional technology industry talent and business leadership.", shared Colin Angle, iRobot's co-founder and CEO.



paul saganPaul Sagan is currently the CEO of Akamai, where he also has been president since May 1999. Akamai leads the market in providing managed services for powering video, dynamic transactions, and enterprise applications online. In other words, in all likelihood, you may have downloaded music or software, checked the headlines, booked a flight, or done something on the internet over Akamai's vast digital operating environment.


Sagan is also a current member of the Board of Directors in companies like Data Domain, EMC Corporation, Dow Jones & Company, Akamai Technologies, and Open Market. Aside from Dow Jones & Company, which is primarily a media company, all the companie s mentioned belong or are related to the IT sector.


iRobot is the company that brings you the Roomba, a robotic vacuum cleaner, and the PackBot, a robot that assists US soldiers in various missions. iRobot has been getting fresh competition lately, particularly in the robotic cleaners front. New entrants like the Neato XV11, Evolution Mint, and LG Roboking are entering market territory that is presently being lorded over by the Roomba. 


Neato XV11 is probably gaining momentum as even Robotreviews has its own forum for this particular floor cleaning robot. Sagan's entry into iRobot may provide ample reinforcement to the company for the impending floor (cleaning) skirmishes this year.
