(Houston April 1st, 2020) Tampnet is pleased to announce that David Heximer from 1st of April will take on the role of Managing Director Tampnet North America, and will report to CEO, Per Helge Svensson.
David Heximer replaces Hector Maytorena whom we thank for his significant contribution to the Tampnet US business and we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavours.
Heximer joined Tampnet Inc. from AirTap Communications after its acquisition in 2014 where he was CEO. He is an industry veteran who has been involved in driving the wireless technology evolution for the past 3 decades.
Over the past six years, he has served in different management roles at Tampnet Inc. and has been an integral part of helping Tampnet realize its business plans in remote oil and gas basins. Heximer has in-depth knowledge of Tampnet and is now looking forward to using his leadership and business development talents to meet Tampnet’s ambitious growth objectives.
I have been blessed with working with many of the industry leaders over the years. I have learned that having a team of experts with a clear focus on customer service is the differentiator. Tampnet is just that team and I am excited at the opportunites ahead of us.
Started roll out 4 years ago

Offshore GoM network
The offshore 4G LTE coverage network enables roaming and the digital transformation and internet of things (IoT) on offshore oil & gas platforms, offshore windfarms and service vessels and other commercial vessels.
