We're pleased to announce that two key members of our team will be stepping into new roles. Mike Davenport, current Director of Product Engineering, has been promoted to Vice President of Operations and Adam Dunn is now the Director of Business Development & Marketing.
Both Adam and Mike have been essential parts of the RPO team for years, working hard to ensure the organization's standing as a key partner to market leading companies. Mike joined RPO's manufacturing engineering team in 2014, utilizing his problem-solving tendencies and rich experience in optics. It's the complexity of optical engineering and the unique challenges the field presents that drew Mike to the industry, and it's his challenge-driven mindset that he's carried throughout his career with RPO that make him ideal for the role of Vice President of Operations.
"The RPO team is full of committed, willing, hard working, smart people who are unmatched in their skill level. The work we're doing in optical development is advancing quickly and I'm excited to continue being a part of that in this new role," stated Davenport.
Adam Dunn has been a member of the Business Development team at RPO since 2013. Always willing to jump into a new project, Adam challenges himself to learn more about the optics business in order to best serve customers. In addition to those customer relationships, Adam has worked to plan and execute RPO's marketing communications and signature events in the industry and community.
Even with his new role, Adam will continue to manage and grow key accounts with a focus on bringing in new business in markets such as virtual reality, UAV, autonomous vehicles and emerging commercial applications. His expanded responsibilities will include managing all of RPO's international distributors and representatives, as well as the management of the customer service team.
"Anyone who’s worked closely with Adam knows that he’s our YES and GO guy. He’s always willing to go above and beyond for our customers and the RPO team as a whole," stated Vice President of Business Development Lisa Belodoff.
RPO’s team is growing, and we’re excited that Adam and Mike will be helping to lead the changes ahead.
