Renton application provider Etelos appears to be picking up steam.
The company brought in a former investment banker to be its chief executive and opened a branch office in Silicon Valley.
Jeffrey Garon, formerly managing director at Kaufman Bros., is now president and chief executive officer, the company announced yesterday. Earlier he was CFO at Debtor Tripath Technology, Silicon Storage and Monster Cable Products.
Etelos also hired four new vice presidents, and founder Danny Kolke shifted over to become chairman and chief technology officer.
The announcement also noted that in the past six months, the company grew to more than 6,000 accounts representing 36,500 users of its applications.
