Pelco Promotes Meyer to CEO; McDonald Stays Onboard
Pelco COO Dean Meyer has been promoted to the position of president and CEO, effective Jan. 21, replacing David McDonald, who led the company for the past 20 years.
McDonald, who is credited for guiding Pelco to be among the industry’s leading providers of video security systems, will remain with the company as chairman of the board.
“Dean’s tenacity, energy and strong people skills have quickly earned him the respect of all – including me,” says McDonald. “I am not just comfortable, but truly excited about Pelco’s future under Dean’s leadership.”
Meyer joined Pelco after the company was acquired by Schneider Electric in October 2007. He formerly served as COO of Carrollton, Texas-based TAC Americas, a Schneider subsidiary.
“I am excited about the challenges of this opportunity,” Meyer says. “Although it’s important to note that obviously we are part of a big corporate company with the Schneider merger, I also think it is equally important to protect those things that have made Pelco so successful in its own right – namely the customer service model, the community outreach, the employee empowerment. So I am very sensitized to the blend of shareholder accountability and the entrepreneurial core values of Pelco.”
