He has wide-ranging experience in the telecommunications industries in the US, Asia and the Pacific region.
While on the Board of Leopard Labs, Brough will assist in strategic planning and commercialization of Leopard Labs' mobile security and content filtering system, Mozone.
"Leopard Labs products are leading edge and will add tremendous value to our Telco partners, handset manufacturers and the consumer market in general," he said.
"These products coupled with an outstanding management team will see Leopard Labs become a leader in the wireless marketplace."
Leopard Labs is in the advanced stages of discussions with local carriers and handset manufacturers on the release of Mozone.
