Datapath has appointed Howard Ford as the company’s new chairman, with immediate effect.
With a wealth of experience in the IT, telecoms and electronics industries, Ford has chaired the boards of several privately held and public companies in the UK and France with previous executive roles at IBM Europe, chief executive Cellnet and president Equant (sold to France Telecom). He is also a private investor in technology companies and chairman of Displaydata.
The appointment completes a raft of new additions to Datapath’s team following David Griffiths’ announcement as VP global sales, Steve Leyland’s appointment to the board of directors, plus new territory heads in Eastern USA and South East Asia.
