Familar face to head Wedge Networks

Wedge Networks Inc., which makes network-based Web security appliances, has familiar face in its new president and CEO. The Calgary company named co-founder Hongwen Zhang as the successor to Phil Gee, who had been CEO for the last three years. Zhang had been the CTO.

Gee will continue on the board of the company, which until three years ago was called Wireless Edge Canada.
Zhang helped develop the architecture of Wedge's BeSecure Web Gateway, the backbone of its product line which includes Internet and messaging gateways.
He holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Calgary, where he co-founded the 24C Group Inc., which developed what the company says was world's first digital receipt infrastructure for secure electronic commerce. He also holds an MSc in computer engineering from China's Institute of Computing Technology – Chinese Academy of Sciences, and a BSc in computer science from Fudan University in Shanghai. He is a co-inventor on several patents in the area of computing and networking.
