LEHI, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Owlet, Inc. (“Owlet” or the “Company”) (NYSE: OWLT), a pioneer of smart baby monitoring, today announces the appointment of executive Jonathan Harris as its new President and Chief Revenue Officer. Harris joins Owlet at a pivotal time in its business – one month after receiving clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) of BabySat™, the first medical pulse-oximetry device featuring Owlet’s advanced, wire-free sock design.

With a proven track record in leading go-to-market strategies for some of the world’s top brands including Microsoft, Roku, GoPro, and Jawbone, Harris brings more than 30 years of experience to Owlet. Harris scaled GoPro from $19 Million to more than $1.5 Billion in revenue globally and helped lead the company through its initial public offering (IPO). More recently he was Chief Executive Officer of Molekule, Inc., where he led the restructuring of its business and merger with AeroClean Technologies, Inc. to form Molekule Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKUL), a publicly traded company focused on FDA-cleared air purification systems.

"Owlet has a unique history of putting parents in control of their baby’s well-being and is now starting an incredible new chapter with the upcoming launch of their first FDA-cleared monitoring system,” said Harris. “Our mutual vision is to build on the company's legacy of being a brand loved and trusted by millions of parents while evolving what at-home care can actually look like. I am excited to guide Owlet into its next phase of growth and expansion of both its consumer and medical product lines.”

Harris will work alongside Owlet Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Kurt Workman and the executive team to accelerate the company’s go-to-market strategies, scale the amazing Owlet community, and build out Owlet’s medical device distribution channels.

"We're thrilled to welcome Jonathan to the Owlet team. His experience leading and building global brands while remaining focused on core relationships with consumers and retail partners will be a key asset to our team. We’ve made incredible progress this year with our FDA clearance and our path to profitability, and Jonathan’s background will help us further amplify these efforts,” said Workman.
