DataPath Appoints Johnson as CFO and Majeres as COO

DataPath, Inc. has appointed two new executives to the firm upon the heels of record growth in 2017 — the company has named Carter Johnson as its Chief Financial Officer and Brad Majeres as the firm's inaugural Chief Operations Officer.

As Chief Financial Officer, 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 extensive 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.

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 including major 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 brings extensive leadership experience to DataPath, having 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.

President and CEO David Myers noted that over the past three plus years, DataPath has nearly doubled in size, launching four new product lines and significantly expanding the firm's international services. To continue to support such rapid growth, the company is being positioned to move to the next level of performance with a renewed focus on the quality, scalability, and efficiency of the business. The addition of Carter and Brad’s expertise, and the new COO role, will help DataPath to improve how the firm supports the evolving mission needs of a growing and diverse customer base.
