Senior Appointment Strengthens Visual Solutions Provider

Company News, Appointments, EMEA, Technology
Visual solutions company, Datapath, has appointed Dave Leat to the position of Project Director.

 

 

With a long and successful track record in technical project management, Dave joins Datapath from GE Power and has previously held positions with the Brush Group, GKN Aerospace, and Rolls-Royce.

 

His past roles have included Operations Director, Head of Programme Management and Programme Manager, with extensive experience of both hardware and software development and transformational change. The next generation of Datapath products are expected to take Datapath’s software and hardware development to new levels – particularly with a wide range of new IP solutions expected in the near to mid term – and Dave will be instrumental in driving these projects in conjunction with initiatives from Datapath’s well-established technical teams.

 

He said: “The future is looking very exciting and I’m very much looking forward to the challenges that lay ahead. Datapath is known for being innovators in pro AV visual solutions and I am fortunate to have seen a glimpse of what the future holds. By ensuring our software and hardware developments are aligned as we move forward, we will continue to lead the way in visual solutions.”

 

Datapath managing director Bjorn Krylander spoke of his delight regarding the appointment as the business continues to grow: “We are really pleased to bring Dave’s experience and knowledge to the team. Datapath’s continued growth requires continued strengthening of the R&D management to allow us to improve our project delivery. At a time when we see a growing R&D team, with more projects being run in parallel, it is important we strengthen the organisation and process by which we deliver projects and new product developments.”
