Board of Directors & Advisors

SOMA embraces the opportunity to have our board of directors and advisors as advocates who stand for our mission. Early in 2021, Weatherford Capital, a leading family-owned private investment firm, completed a Series A investment in SOMA for $22.5M. Will Weatherford (Managing Partner) and David Seider (Principal) play an instrumental role in providing company oversight and strategic future planning issues critical to our success.

Chris Maloney, former chairman, founder, and past President/CEO of TriTech Software Systems, joined SOMA in April 2021. Chris’s deep technology understanding, passion, and leadership in scaling public safety businesses are valuable to our board. Also, in April of 2021, SOMA welcomed former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to its Board of Advisors. She brings over 30 years of experience. Her unwavering commitment to supporting law enforcement, officer safety, and technology advancements in public safety is an ambitious voice in our path to disrupting age-old public safety technology.

“When I can save dispatchers a few keystrokes, I know we’ve made a difference. Those saved seconds for a baby breathing are crucial. The public safety world is a very tight family. I’ve been on the government sector side and now on the vendor side and that unity is never lost.”
