WFS Technologies has appointed Jim Darroch as a new chief technology officer to drive its evolving product portfolio and software development roadmap.
Jim Darroch has been appointed CTO to own the company’s product vision and roadmap, and to expand the product engineering team to meet growing client demands for its existing product range.
Jim brings with him a wealth of experience in leading engineering teams and the development of Internet of Things product strategies, most recently where he was globally accountable for the delivery of an Intelligent IoT Edge ecosystem in Honeywell’s ‘Connected Enterprise’ organisation.
Prior to Honeywell, Jim spent several years at Artesyn (formerly Emerson) as senior director and vice president of Engineering, leading the planning and execution of the company’s global software and product engineering strategies.
“WFS impressed me as a clear thought leader in developing subsea wireless and compute technology to solve customers’ problems in some of the world’s harshest operating environments,” Jim said.
“While there is a great deal of synergy with other emerging IoT use cases, Subsea IoT presents enough challenges and opportunities to make WFS a fascinating place to work.
“With a solid technology foundation and a talented development team already in place, I am incredibly excited to join the team at this time to help drive, and deliver, our product vision.”
