Downers Grove, IL – July 6, 2016 – Microsystems announces the promotion of David Cook to the position of Vice President, Product Development, succeeding newly-appointed CEO Stacey Kacek in the position as the leader of the Downers Grove, Illinois based software company’s product team.

Cook, who joined Microsystems in 2013 as the Director of Software Development, has worked with Kacek at three different companies, each time joining when Kacek recruited him.  Cook’s background includes escalating positions in consulting, software development, and engineering with Andersen Consulting, IBM, Motorola, SmartSignal, and GE.

Kacek said this of the appointment:  “David enables us to innovate fast.  When I arrived at Microsystems in 2013 as VP of Product Development and CTO, I knew I had much to do accelerate our pace of product development to match the rapidly-changing needs of the markets we serve.  David was the first person I called. Together we were able to implement rapid changes in our methodologies to agile development, and make large changes in our staffing models, and from there, our product roadmap. As the leader of our product development team, he will continue to expand the efforts we started together and continue to ensure our products truly deliver the value our customers demand.”
