M:Metrics gains exec

M:Metrics, the Seattle company that conducts mobile research, said today that Peter Wiederspan has joined as chief financial officer.

Wiederspan comes from companies including Nextel, VeriSign and Illuminet.

“We’re proud to have attracted an individual of Peter’s caliber to join our company,” said M:Metrics Chief Executive Will Hodgman in a release. “Having spent more than a decade in the telecommunications industry, Peter is a perfect complement to our team of mobile and measurement industry luminaries.”

Wiederspan began his career at Ernst and Young before joining Nextel in its early years. After that he joined a start-up called Illuminet that was building database and infrastructure for the telecommunications sector. As Illuminet’s vice president, finance and investor relations, Wiederspan was a key architect of the company’s initial public offering and brokered the company’s acquisition by VeriSign.

Wiederspan continued to work at VeriSign where he directed financial operations of its telecommunications division.
