GKD Technologies appoints David Perez as CEO

GKD Technologies, a supplier of personnel and machinery safety systems, has appointed David Perez as its next chief executive officer, succeeding long-time leader and founder of GKD, Nick Ground.

David brings a proven track record of scaling businesses in multiple sectors including in technology services, software as a service (SaaS), and network security, where he has led various regional and global business units. David is highly skilled in business planning and strategy, with a strong focus on business development. Most recently, David was the CEO of Norm Cyber Ltd, helping to establish the company as a key supplier to SMEs with its innovative and class-leading Cyber Security as a Service offering. He also served as CEO for a prominent Internet of Things software business based in the UK helping to grow an enviable list of international channel partners and blue-chip customers and delivering rapid expansion. David also brings significant global experience, having been based in the USA for several years as President for North America for Reliance Globalcom (now Global Cloud Exchange), a network services and digital transformation business.

David’s appointment allows former CEO Nick Ground to concentrate on growing and accelerating GKD’s innovation pipeline. Nick and David will be working together to ensure a smooth transition and Nick will continue to play a key role in GKD’s future success by driving growth through innovation. GKD’s new CEO said, “We have very ambitious plans at GKD. Building on a very solid foundation, with strong relationships and great partners, we are uniquely placed to capitalise on the evolving market conditions. Our plan is to roll out the next generation of flexible and modular safety solutions which will significantly help our customers track and improve safety performance in the workplace.”
