DataPath Appoints New CFO and First COO
DataPath has announced the appointment of two new executives, naming Carter Johnson as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Brad Majeres as its inaugural Chief Operations Officer (COO).
As CFO, Johnson’s primary responsibilities include leading all financial planning and analysis, accounting, treasury and audit functions, as well as managing investment initiatives for the company. Having served as a U.S. Army Officer, Johnson has experience in a variety of aerospace and defense technology related organizations. He most recently served as the senior vice president of finance and contract management at Meggitt Training Systems. Additionally, Johnson previously served in progressive finance leadership roles at businesses including Barco/Esterline Technologies, ChoicePoint/LexisNexis, and S1 Corporation. Johnson succeeds Emmett Moore, who served as CFO for nearly four years and rebuilt the finance, accounting and treasury functions for DataPath after its spin-out as an independent company in July 2014. Moore is returning to private practice at his financial consulting firm Practical Vision.
Brad Majeres’ position as COO is a newly created role designed to support the company as it expands in scale and continues to focus on quality and efficiency improvements. In response to significant growth in 2017, including new international contracts, DataPath is expanding its systems and processes. As COO, Majeres assumes a broad base of responsibilities including engineering and technology, processes and quality, information systems, supply chain, program management, logistics, technical services, and customer care. A satellite-industry veteran, Majeres previously served as a business line general manager and head of engineering, program management, and operations at organizations including ViaSat, General Dynamics, and Scientific Atlanta.
