Audinate elects new chairman of the board5 August 2011
The Dante networking solution developer has announced the election of David Krall (pictured) to serve as chairman of its board of directors.
Krall – who joined Audinate’s board of directors earlier this year – also serves as executive chair of QSecure and is on the board of directors of Progress Software.
A previous president and COO of entertainment streaming specialist Roku (for whom he continues to advise), Krall also spent a highly successful period as CEO of Avid, during which time the company doubled its revenues to just under $1bn annually.
“Audinate’s board of directors is integral to our ability to execute our growth strategy, and having someone with David’s industry background as our chair will be a tremendous asset,” said Lee Ellison, president and CEO of Audinate. “David Krall’s diverse background in developing companies who are in the start-up’s high-growth phase, as well as large publically traded companies, will be a major benefit for Audinate moving forward.”
“What first attracted me to Audinate was their advanced technology offering, allowing customers to send audio and video signals synchronously across standard IT networks,” said David Krall, ”but what has impressed me most since joining the board has been the strength of the team behind this offering. Audinate definitely can compete at any weight class, and I think they have a tremendous opportunity to make a big contribution to this industry.”
