Twenty year veteran will be instrumental in communication technology and electronic security business sectors
LOUISVILLE, Colo. – March 10, 2009
– Inovonics today announced Michael Slack as the new Vice President of Technology and Business Development. “The position is designed to bridge a CTO-like function with a practical product development strategy component,” said Mark Jarman, president of Inovonics. “We have a need for a technologist that is un-tethered by departmental management responsibilities to look at the multiple convergence events that are occurring in fixed-base cell networks, satellite communications, radio frequency (RF) technology, microprocessor combinations, and each of these technologies’ ultimate use of the Internet and local area networks. With Mike’s experience, business background and technology background, he’s a perfect fit.”
Slack was most recently working for Bosch Security Systems, Inc. as the VP of product strategy, and, before that, was the director of engineering GE Security, Inc.
Wireless communication is the fastest growing communications media today. “Inovonics has built a great business supplying high quality commercial grade wireless technology products. My career has been all about developing and delivering commercial grade electronic products in the industrial security market,” said Slack. My goal is to combine my skills with Inovonics’ technology, and work with the great team at Inovonics to add value and significantly grow the business.”
“Inovonics’ key strength is in commercial wireless sensor and network development. As we move forward into complete system solutions, Inovonics will incorporate new sensor and control technologies, and the sort of leadership Mike brings to us will become increasingly critical to our success,” said Jarman.
Slack’s first day at Inovonics will be March 30, 2009.
