Dataton has appointed Lars Sandlund as CEO, in what is a newly created position for the Swedish show control developer and manufacturer.
Sandlund has been with the company for seven years, most recently in the position of COO, and in his new role will be responsible for implementing Dataton’s strategic expansion.
“I'm looking forward to leading and developing Dataton, with its admirable reputation for innovation, great products and proud 43-year history. My goal is to ensure that Dataton maintains and reinforces its top position in the market for at least the next 43 years,” commented Sandlund.
Over the last five years Dataton has appointed new sales partners, moved to purpose-built headquarters and doubled its R&D team. “We are committed to creating products that are the best in the business and for that you need the best people in the business,” Sandlund added.
“The pace of the AV industry has never been faster than it is today and growth is essential to keep us at the forefront of technology, driving development. I'm excited to lead that process."
