AirWatch is the leader in enterprise-grade Mobile Device Management, Mobile Application Management and Mobile Content Management solutions designed to simplify mobility. More than 8,000 customers across the world trust AirWatch to manage their most valuable assets: their mobile devices, including the apps and content on those devices. AirWatch solutions are comprehensive, built on a powerful yet easy to use platform by leaders in the mobile space.

AirWatch was founded in 2003 by John Marshall. He believed mobile technology would completely revolutionize the way companies do business. His mission is to develop solutions that empower companies to focus on innovative uses of mobile technology rather than the complexities of managing mobility. Based in Atlanta with offices worldwide, AirWatch is privately held and financially backed by its executive team.

Alan Dabbiere is the chairman of AirWatch, driving the company’s vision, direction and growth plans. He joined Air-Watch in 2006. Mr. Dabbiere is also the president of AJD, LLC, a privately held investment company, and he serves on the Board of Directors of the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG). Prior to AirWatch, Dabbiere founded Manhattan Associates (NASDAQ:MANH), the world’s leading supply-chain execution software company, where he served as president and chief executive officer from 1990 through the end of 1999. Following the company’s successful initial public offering in 1998, he served as Manhattan Associates’ chairman of the board of directors through 2003.
