Two very senior figures and well-known industry faces have left drone supplier DJI to take on new roles elsewhere in the industry.
Swiss-born Romeo Durscher, who was senior director of public safety integration, and Cynthia Huang, formerly DJI’s director of business development, both said they will leave the company.
It is unclear where Mr Durscher is heading after his six year tenure at DJI. In an online drone industry panel discussion taking place this week, Mr Durscher’s title is listed as ‘UAV public safety evangelist’.
During his time at DJI, he has been a key figure in integrating drones into everyday public life and consistently appeared at industry events around the world, promoting the UAV agenda.
Meanwhile, Ms Huang, who was with DJI for three years, said she will be joining Auterion as VP of enterprise business development.
Ms Huang in her new role will work alongside Auterion’s customers in the utility, oil & gas, telco and mining sectors.
“As drones play a crucial role for enterprises to continue working in these challenging times, Auterion’s founders and I share a common vision of customisable, open systems for every customer,” she said.
DJI is yet to officially name replacements for each of the roles.
