Last week we officially announced the appointment of Nedko Ivanov as our CEO. Nedko will help us drive our growth in the finger sensing and haptic touch industries, and further scale our operation as we increase engagements with leading consumer electronic brands. This appointment comes at a pivotal moment, amid booming demand for next generation haptics for consumer electronics devices such as laptops, displays and accessories.
Nedko’s previous experience includes various high-profile roles. Notably, during his role as CEO of Redux, another haptic touch business, Nedko led the company in the run up to its acquisition by Google back in 2017. He has also served as CEO of internet security software company, BullGuard, which was later acquired by Avira.
Our Chairman, Dirk Van den Berghen, comments: “Nedko’s track record in the haptic touch market is unparalleled. His experience and expertise in commercialising viable technologies into industry leading devices makes him an ideal fit as head of Aito’s team of experienced professionals.”
Nedko comments: “The finger-sensing and haptic touch market is set to grow exponentially and Aito’s integrated solution provides a unique, rich, space-saving and cost-effective solution for a variety of applications in consumer electronics. Aito’s solution allows customers to create highly intuitive touch experiences for laptop users while creating more elegant designs for consumer electronics devices. I joined Aito to enable customers to take full benefit of the differentiation our technology brings to market.”
