Data company Code Corporation has named Kent L. Hansen as its new CEO. Mr. Hansen brings more than 30 years of leadership experience within the technology industry to help guide Code’s brands, products, and technology.
“Our key criteria was to find an individual who will provide the leadership to build Code into a world-class organization,” said Code Board of Directors Chairman Barclay McFadden III. “Kent has demonstrated the ability to do just that throughout his career. We also sought an individual whose management style encourages a collaborative working environment. Kent brings strong product management, sales, OEM, contract manufacturing, and financial expertise to Code.”
Mr. Hansen comes to Code from CA Engineering, where he was partner and President, overseeing growth and strategic direction. Under his leadership, the business’ profitable revenue increased by more than 700 percent, and it developed a range of domestic and global strategic partnerships relationships. Prior to that, he served as a Senior Director at computer network company 3Com.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join this amazing team of incredibly talented and smart individuals who make up the Code family–including our extended family of distributors and resellers,” said Mr. Hansen. “Together we will continue to offer customers not only the most innovative data capture technology available but also the most creative product solutions the industry has ever seen. I am happy to champion the Code brands in this new chapter and look forward to many more years of not only business success, but exceeding our customer’s expectations.”
