"The expansion of our team allows us to bring industry-leading insight and experience relating to search and rescue, hardware manufacturing, and enhanced strategic vision in our educational and government sectors.

Dougherty serves as the chief brand officer and joins the board of directors whose members include Brigadier General Francis Quinlan, COO/CRO Ed Merjanian, and private equities manager Michael Beaudoin.
Dougherty co-founded mophie, the No. 1 selling battery case manufacturer for mobile devices in North America.

Prior to mophie, Dougherty led purchasing and product development for several notable tech-based companies, including Directed Electronics, where she led the outsourcing of the entire audio line to Asia, Orion, ADST, and Stryker Medical.
Cassano and Long join the board of advisors including Charles Marino, chief executive officer of Sentinel Security Solutions.
Cassano served as the 32nd Fire Commissioner in the 151-year history of the New York Fire Department. He spent more than 44 years in the FDNY. He played a chief role in rebuilding the department in the wake of Sept. 11. Commissioner Cassano served as the FDNY's chief of department—the highest-ranking uniformed officer—from 2006 to 2010 and oversaw many of the agency's most important bureaus, including Fire and EMS Operations, Training, Safety, and Fire Prevention and Communications.
"After decades of working in public safety in the largest city in the U.S., I have witnessed firsthand the life-changing difference more reliable and redundant communication can serve—for first responders and for those we are trying to help," Cassano said. "I am proud to be on Titan HST Board of Advisors and support their mission to help others in some of their greatest times of need."
In his role as California's Secretary of Education, Dr. Long helped shape California Education policies and served as an advisor to the governor on education issues. He has more than 40 years of experience in the field, ranging from 21 years of classroom teaching to the superintendency. Prior to his appointment by Gov.
