V.P. OF INNOVATION
After 20 years of leadership roles in the outdoor hospitality and mobile communication industries, Kelly Hogan joined Winegard in 2020 as Vice President of Innovation.
Early positions in Kelly’s career include Territory Manager for Oracle Corporation and Director of IT for a major PC manufacturer. In 2001, Kelly decided to focus on the RV sector and formed NomadISP. This enterprise was dedicated to delivering WiFi to the RV park market and was sold in 2009.
In the same year, Kelly founded WiFiRanger, a company dedicated to bringing innovative internet connectivity solutions to the RV industry, including the first transient oriented router designed specifically for RVs. Another significant success was acquiring and building a sizeable Wireless ISP in rural Idaho to improve communications and reduce the digital divide in the state.
Within 11 years, WiFiRanger became a nationally recognized leader in innovative mobile connectivity solutions and remains a standalone brand within the Winegard Family since its acquisition in 2020.
Kelly received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Business Administration from Western Oregon University. He lives in Boise, Idaho, with his wife and two border collies.
