ProLabs has revealed that Matt McCormick has been named CEO of Halo Technology, a group recently formed after the third-party optical transceiver specialist and AddOn Networks merged in December 2017 (see "ProLabs, AddOn Networks merge under Halo Technology").
McCormick joined AddOn in 2005 as a sales associate, gaining experience in the market, and in product generation and development. In 2011, he was promoted to vice president of sales. In this position, McCormick was responsible for development of the white label service offering, an initiative he continues to lead, as well as development and promotion of the company's technology line. Additionally, McCormick has managed sales worldwide, and transformed AddOn's optical transceiver business from re-seller of other network accessories to its existing business model.
ProLabs was founded in 2004 as part of an IT distributor, and makes a variety of compatible transceivers in data rates ranging from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps, alongside media converters, and network interconnect and active network products (see "ProLabs showcasing Green transceivers line at ECOC 2017" and "Berk-Tek partners with ProLabs to launch optical transceiver line").
"ProLabs is an ambitious industry challenger and I am looking forward to spearheading our global compatible connectivity mission," said McCormick. "Ultimately, our products are tried, tested, and ahead of the curve thanks to our on- site, state-of-the-art facilities. Compatibility is our middle name, but it's not our end-game, and with the support of the Halo group, our presence is only set to expand."
Formerly AddOn Computer Peripherals LLC, AddOn was founded in 1999, and also provides optical transceivers, as well as network cabling, and accessories and memory upgrade products.
