A 25-year veteran of telecom and SaaS software product management, Friedman will lead a team of product development professionals to accelerate AireSpring’s development process and reinforce the “highest quality product outcomes,” the company said.

“Mr. Friedman’s dynamic commitment to the highest standards of product management and his deep experience with leading edge enterprises, both within and outside of telecom, make him a great fit for AireSpring,” said David Lonstein, AireSpring’s executive vice president of product management. “His role will be invaluable in supporting our development of new products and implementing processes needed to assure top-quality customer satisfaction as we continue our growth trajectory.“

He then served as director of product management for both AnyMeeting and ADP, where he worked closely with user-experience and user-interface designers to ensure that the company’s periodic tax-compliance products met the needs of clients. In addition, he served as director of product and project management at Nations Info, implementing a customer-centric approach to new product development.

He moved on to work at Citrix Online, where he served as principal product line manager for the GoToMeeting product line, including desktop and mobile applications, global localization and web portal functionality.
