Dallas-based COMSovereign Holding Corp., a developer of 4G LTE Advanced and 5G communication systems and solutions, announced that David Knight has been appointed chief executive officer, president, and a director of the company.
Knight was named interim CEO on Sept. 7 after the departures of the company’s CEO and its president.
“As interim CEO, I have evaluated and analyzed COMSovereign and its roadmap, and I am confident in its significant potential and value,” Knight said in a statement. “We have crafted a clear vision for COMSovereign as stated in my recent update letter, and we are committed to the execution of our plan designed to refocus the company and improve its ability to service customers and generate meaningful revenue.”
Knight worked with the company’s board of directors to implement a series of business process improvements and refocusing activities that include streamlining operations and reducing costs. These efforts also include engaging with customers and partners to maximize the value of the ComSovereign’s wireless communications and tethered drone products, its intellectual property portfolio, and identifying new opportunities to generate revenue.
COMSovereign’s board of directors issued a statement: “David’s dedication and leadership since his appointment as interim CEO has been a critical factor in our ability to execute against the Company’s ongoing business transition activities. The Board is unanimous in support as he and the team work diligently to ensure we capitalize on the strength and value of our current offerings today and are positioned to realize the exciting new technologies and capabilities envisioned for tomorrow.”
Knight, who has led turnarounds and transformations of multiple technology and services companies, was formerly the CEO of Dispersive Holdings, an Atlanta-based cybersecurity company and the CEO of Federos, which acquired by Oracle, according to his company bio. Knight held earlier senior management positions at Motorola, SEI, and Micromuse. At Micromuse, he was responsible for the acquisition and integration of over $200 million in subsidiaries and partnerships prior to the firm’s purchase by IBM. Knight has a master’s degree in management from Northwestern’s Kellogg School and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Valparaiso University.
