CAROLLTON, Texas, April 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) (“ADDvantage Technologies” or the “Company”) today announced leadership changes at its Triton Datacom and Nave Communications business units. The changes include:
- Damon Slachter was promoted to President of Triton Datacom. Mr. Slachter started his career at Triton Datacom in 2013 and was responsible for building out the eCommerce website and handling related sales. Over the past nine years, he has developed the eCommerce team and moved from Retail Sales Associate to Director of Sales, and Vice President of Sales.
- Mike Burch was promoted to President of Nave Communications. Mr. Burch began his career with Nave in 2004, advancing through various sales leadership roles. He has helped to build a customer-focused organization, committed to providing the highest-quality and most cost-effective solutions for customers.
- Reginald Jaramillo Leal, who previously served as President of Telecommunications, overseeing both Triton and Nave, has left the company to pursue other opportunities. Reggie recently completed a Masters in Accounting to go along with his MBA and is interested in changing career paths.
Both Mr. Slachter and Mr. Burch will report to Michael Rutledge, Chief Financial Officer of ADDvantage Technologies.
“When Reggie took over two years ago our Telco division needed a strong Operations and Financial focus to streamline costs, improve efficiencies and finalize the relocation of Nave Communications at Palco Telecom in Huntsville, Alabama, and to finish the relocation of Triton Datacom into its new facilities in Pembroke Park, Florida,” commented Mr. Rutledge. “Since then, both Nave and Triton have grown their revenue and profitability very nicely and we feel that it is now time, with Reggie’s departure, to focus on growing those businesses even more to realize their greater potential. These changes place experienced leadership with ideal skillsets in positions where they can drive maximum value. Mike and Damon have both steadily progressed through their respective organizations, taking on additional responsibility and proving themselves to be outstanding professionals under Reggie’s leadership. We could not be more excited to have Michael and Damon take on the roles of President for their respective business and look forward to the continued growth of Nave and Triton under their leadership. We wish Reggie the best of luck in his new ventures and we thank him for his service to our organization.”
Joe Hart, President and CEO of ADDvantage Technologies also announces that Jimmy Taylor, formerly President of Fulton Technologies Inc., has moved to the position of Chief Marketing Officer-Wireless effective April 1, 2022 and will be responsible for enhancing Customer Relationships, Sales and Marketing on a full-time basis in order to grow the Wireless business even further and maximize the 5G opportunity.
