Redux, the sole provider of high-fidelity haptics and surface audio technology, announces the appointment of Dennis O’Donovan as vice president of operations and supply chain.
With more than 20 years’ experience in senior management roles in the technology sector — including at Vertu, Pace, Purple Labs, Philips and Motorola — Dennis brings a wealth of consumer electronics market knowledge, enhanced by previous responsibilities for areas such as R&D, sourcing, quality and operational management.
Dennis joins Redux at a time when the company is developing strong relationships with some of the world’s biggest smartphone, computer, automotive and other technology brands, preparing the company for high-volume orders and mass production.
Redux CEO Nedko Ivanov said: “Dennis’s experience and skillset are both second to none, and he is an excellent fit for Redux. His appointment is part of our strategic approach to becoming a world-class organisation and the fact that we’re attracting people like Dennis to work for us is a sign that our strategy is paying off.
“Our technology is proven and ready to deploy in a variety of applications and bringing Dennis on board will ensure that we can deliver on the potential of our technology by supporting high-volume orders and deployments.”
Dennis, looking forward to his new role, said: “As a co-founder and former CEO of Purple Labs, a technology start up, I have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of what it takes to grow a successful business.
“Having worked in the mobile phone industry for the best part of my working life, I am astounded by the quality of Redux’s high-fidelity haptics and the fact that the company can turn almost any surface into a distributed mode loudspeaker. As automotive, computer and smartphone brands increasingly focus on differentiating themselves, Redux has a significant opportunity to capitalise.
“And given that Redux is the only company in the world that can deliver surface audio and high-quality haptics together in one package, Redux is a class above other haptics companies out there claiming to improve the user experience.”
