Cloudwyze has named Adrian Wilson as executive vice president and Nicco Leone as COO, according to a news release.

The Wilmington-based internet and managed services provider added the two executives to support the growth of the firm, which was selected to deliver high-speed internet in the rural counties of Nash and Halifax, officials said in the release.

“I’m excited to join CloudWyze at such a crucial time,” said Wilson in the release. “We have the opportunity to grow a significant business by providing broadband access to a portion of our population that has never had it before.”

At CloudWyze, Wilson provides executive services leading to funding opportunities and enhanced government and community relations.

Wilson is an attorney, entrepreneur and venture capitalist, officials said. He has held many positions in corporate investment, including a founder of Square1 Ventures, where he "managed a $45 million venture capital fund-of-funds," officials said in the release.

He also held leadership positions as an attorney and consultant. He co-founded a telecommunications company, Airwavz Solutions.

Leone (right) previously spent several years at Capgemini as an operations and technology consultant and "subsequently joined his client Brooks Brothers to build a global center of excellence driven by systems and operational efficiencies," officials said in the release.

He left Brooks Brothers and founded Lykewyze, a digital marketing automation company.
