Redmond-based Ossia, which provides wireless power technology, on Thursday announced Michael Morgan and Preston Woo have joined the company's board of directors.

Morgan is the president of Camlo Hill Capital, an investment firm that is based in Spokane, according to documents from the Washington secretary of state. Prior to Camlo Hill, Morgan spent more than 14 years at T-Mobile, where his roles included chief accounting officer and chief financial officer.

"Michael is a creative, high-energy leader who is accomplished in implementing innovative strategy, disciplined execution and successful teams to drive growth and achieve profitable results," Ali Kolaghassi, chairman of the board at Ossia, said in a statement. "He's been instrumental as a board member to many foundations and schools in the Washington area. We are thrilled to have him on board."

Morgan was also the president and board chair of T-Mobile's financial services efforts.

Woo, meanwhile, spent about four years as the chief strategy officer at Ossia before taking a new role, also chief strategy officer, at the avatar company Tafi at the start of 2021, according to his LinkedIn profile. Woo's career also includes time at Intellectual Ventures, Vulcan Capital and UBS Investment Bank.

"Preston's long-standing strategic relationships with many forward-thinking companies will bring many opportunities for Ossia," Kolaghassi said in a statement. "We are excited to have him in this new role."

Ossia was founded in 2013. The company makes a transmitter that can power multiple nearby devices wirelessly. Users can embed a tiny silicon chip into their devices to allow the transmitter to keep them charged. According to Crunchbase, Ossia has raised more than $16 million.

Morgan and Woo are starting with the board this month, and both will sit on the audit and compensation committees, according to Ossia.
