GeoPhoenix gets new executive chairman

User interface company GeoPhoenix announced on Tuesday that former Palm Chief Executive Carl Yankowski is joining the company as the executive chairman. The company is building an interface that will present a consistent look regardless of the type of device--from large kiosk to handheld--or the amount of information that a person needs to navigate. Company executives said in a release that Yankowski's knowledge of the handheld industry and his understanding of the challenges that developers face will help to bring the interface to market. Yankowski has also served as CEO of Reebok and president and chief operating officer of Sony Electronics.
