Airspace security technology specialist Dedrone has appointed from within, choosing former president & CBO Aaditya Devarakonda as its new CEO and board member.
He takes over from Joerg Lamprecht, who co-founded the company and is now executive chairman.
Devarakonda is a recent addition to the company, having joined its advisory board only last year.
Reflecting on his appointment, he shared: “I am proud to lead this accomplished team. On behalf of myself and Dedrone, we wish to express our appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Lamprecht, for his support and leadership.
“Joerg established and built our remarkable company with his co-founders, Rene Seeber and Ingo Seebach, and I am excited to continue their vision of airspace security.
“Dedrone’s future is bright and we are thankful Joerg will remain close at hand to support this next chapter in our company’s success.”
Dedrone’s counter-drone technologies have been used by critical infrastructure, government agencies and more since its founding in 2014.
Co-founder Joerg Lamprecht, stepping down as CEO, commented: “AD is the ideal leader for Dedrone as the company looks to scale and remain the top global provider of airspace security technology.
“I am especially proud of how well AD has led Dedrone during his first few months at the company, through an unprecedented global crisis.
“AD’s focus, energy and exceptional business acumen will serve our company and customers. I am proud of what our team has built since Dedrone’s establishment in 2014 and look forward to the future of Dedrone.”
