Effective immediately, McKee will assume the position of Chief Operating Officer, responsible for overseeing the day-to-day administrative and operational functions of Fybr.
Before joining Fybr in January 2015 as VP of Operations, McKee served in the United States Marine Corps and spent several years lending his talents to a major defense contractor. “I have always found it both a privilege and honor to serve our country,” he remarked. “Working for Fybr still allows me to serve—but instead of the whole country, I now serve the populations of cities.”
McKee combines a lifelong fascination with new technology with a passion for improving technologies to impact lives positively. Fybr’s robust, cutting edge IoT platform and the opportunity its technology presents is not lost on McKee. From the beginning, he said he “was amazed at the capabilities of the platform and all the positive impacts it can provide to cities. I was hooked once I understood the expandability of the system that could solve a lot of issues.”
In his new role as COO, McKee’s first task will be to improve and mature processes within Fybr. “One of my focuses will be to empower Fybr staff and allow for greatness to shine within each individual. I also greatly look forward to working directly with our CEO, Bob Glatz, who has been a great leader and mentor to all of us.”
“Our team has developed a unique solution with the potential to become commonplace within every city’s infrastructure; to change how universities, cities, counties, states, and other organizations manage their environments. That’s the opportunity for Fybr- and it’s one that the team and I will work tirelessly to realize.”
Fybr provides a Smart City Platform—helping communities with efficiency, reduced operating costs, and improved quality of life.

Located in Saint Louis, MO, with a 22-year history, Fybr’s patented IoT solutions have over two billion data events logged globally from real-world applications.
Fybr proudly announces Linnell Gorden will be assuming the position of Senior Vice President, Software Engineering. Beginning with Fybr as a consultant in 2014, Gorden was initially brought on board to support the Java-based infrastructure in place at the time.
Camera-based image recognition systems are built on a simple premise- they are electronic “eyes” capable of recognizing unique items and capturing data. The unique item can be everything from a license plate number to a human face. Once recognized and captured, the resultant data can be applied to a wide variety of use cases, such as parking, traffic, or law enforcement. This simple premise is easy to grasp, and its outcome is a highly-desirable one. But as with many technologies, what works in theory under controlled conditions and what works in practice in real-world situations aren’t always the same.
