Seattle enterpreneur Hadi Partovi, who consults with Facebook and a number of other Web ventures, is touching a different kind of technology company.
Partovi is joining the board of Taser, the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based manufacturer of “personal protection devices.”
Believe it or not, Taser’s expanding into social media and software, where Partov, a former general manager at MSN, has lots of experience.
From the release issued by Taser:
“Mr. Partovi’s extensive experience as an expert in development, software solutions and social media technology will provide added experience as well as a strategic focus to roll out our emerging innovative Evidence.com and Protector driver and mobile technology,” Taser Chairman Tom Smith said. “Mr. Partovi is a highly experienced and valuable addition to our board. He will provide insight in our new pioneering technology solutions that provide law enforcement and families with peace of mind with products that protect life as well as the truth.”
Don’t tase me, Partovi?
