Chair of German Marketing Task Force
Minol ZENNER Group - Brunata AG
Head of Ecosystem and IoT Solutions, Brunata AG
Since stripping apart and putting back together his first radio at age 9, Val has had a fascination with communication technologies. After a professional military career of 10 years in the Royal Australian Air Force working on secure defense networks, Val embarked on a civilian career following new technologies from analog to digital mobile, GSM to Voice over IP and Wireless MESH to Low Power WAN. Today, he couples his passion for innovative IoT technologies with his desire to help people find solutions for their needs as well as imparting knowledge and experience along the way. When not introducing Brunata customers to the benefits of IoT solutions, or participating in LoRa Alliance activities, Val can be found at home digging in the garden with his family or tinkering on his small collection of cars from the 80’s.
