Denise Gibson, Co-Founder of Ice Mobility, to be inducted into the Hall of Fame for Consumer Technology   

WASHINGTON, DC, April 16, 2024.  The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® is inducting Ice Mobility Co-Founder,  Denise Gibson, to the Consumer Technology Hall of Fame, tonight at The Digital Patriot’s Dinner in Washington, DC.  This award honors innovators who the CTA has determined have made significant contributions to the consumer technology industry worthy of induction.


Gibson’s induction into the Consumer Technology Hall of Fame is based on her career as a visionary leader and industry trailblazer. Gibson led the North America technical and commercial teams for Motorola during its rapid ascent to becoming a global leader in wireless handsets. She then shifted to entrepreneurship, launching two fast-growth companies, as Founder and CEO of Brightstar US and as Co-Founder of Ice Mobility, both critical drivers of logistics and distribution services that accelerated the spread of wireless technology.


A longtime advocate of innovation and accessibility in consumer technology, Gibson has held multiple roles within CTA including, the Executive Board, Chair of the CTA Foundation, Board of Industry Leaders, CTAPAC Leadership Board, Wireless Division Board, Audit Committee Chair, and the Diversity Investment Committee. Gibson was the primary catalyst in CTA’s investment commitment of $10 million in venture funds that are focused on funding women-led startups, underrepresented founders, and diverse leadership teams. 


“Denise has been a tremendous innovator, mentor, culture-setter, ambassador and wise business advisor, both for Ice Mobility and for the wireless industry,” commented Mike Magner, CEO of Ice Mobility.  “She has been an important part of Ice’s success and leadership in wireless supply chain and logistics.  We congratulate her for her induction into the CTA Hall of Fame, which is so well deserved on so many levels.”


Denise will be recognized during an awards dinner ceremony on Tuesday, April 16 in Washington, DC as part of CTA’s Tech Week, which brings together lawmakers and technology companies to experience the latest tech innovations and discuss technology policy issues including broadband, self-driving vehicles, digital health, and more. CTA also will recognize U.S. Representatives Robin Kelly (D-IL) and Bob Latta (R-OH), and Co-founder of iRobot Colin Angle, as Digital Patriots, an award given to leaders who champion policies vital to innovation in consumer technology.  


“As CTA celebrates its 100th anniversary, we are excited to honor these trailblazers who have made their mark on the tech industry, while we look forward to what the next 100 years bring,” said Gary Shapiro, CEO of CTA.
