David Walters joins as CTO of leading automotive diagnostics provider to help shape delivery of its multi-channel, multi-device strategy.
James Bagan comes onboard to accelerate European Sales growth.
25 JULY 2014 - Wheatley, Oxfordshire. Autologic Diagnostics today announced the appointment of David Walters as its first Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and James Bagan as its European Sales Director. Walters joins Autologic to steer the technical development of the company's next generation of multi-channel automotive diagnostic software and solutions. Bagan will shape and develop new sales channels, while ensuring that customer input drives development of the best product platforms and diagnostic services for their business.
"Our customers are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their use of diagnostic services and software," said John Conoley, Chief Executive Officer of Autologic Diagnostics. "They expect to access diagnostic services via tablet computers, mobile phones, wireless devices and even cloud-based technology. David is joining the team to help us build best-in-class solutions that directly meet these evolving customer needs, while James will bring these really powerful solutions to the widest possible audience."
Bagan and Walters have a proven track record of over 25 years each in senior leadership positions.
Bagan has driven sales teams in the advertising, technology, outsourcing and logistics industries. He has also spent the last 10 years successfully leading private equity backed business through major change programmes.
Bagan said: "Autologic has been through considerable change in the past months and my ambition is to help reinforce the company's reputation in all of the places we do business. I'll be doing my job well if customers feel really listened to, supported and valued by us."
As a technology leader, David Walters has designed and driven technology strategy development across various geographies and has worked with, and led, teams in the UK, USA as well as across EMEA. Prior to joining Autologic, he met with key customers to discuss their opinion of the company's products and services.
"Autologic customers have told me how important our products and services are to their everyday working lives," said Walters. "There is a great deal more that we can do, even in the short term, to design and build innovative products that our customers can use to drive predictable and profitable diagnosis. These will be what the industry will come to recognizes as genuine thought leadership," added Walters.
Walters' sector-specific experience includes contact centre, media, finance and technology with responsibility for driving business innovation, particularly in the areas of hardware/software, digital apps and social media, big data analytics and cloud-based transformation. He was also a finalist at the British Computer Society/Computing UK IT Leader of the Year awards in 2009.
"It's the opportunity to explore how far we can develop Autologic's product and service portfolio that really excites me about this opportunity," said Walters. "Now that I've met our incredible development team, I'm certain that we can build something very special for the automotive sector."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
