Mark Folmer has been appointed president and chief operating officer at Robotic Assistance Devices, a subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions.
Folmer will oversee all of RAD’s manufacturing, operations, sales and administrative groups. He had previously held roles within the company of COO and vice-president, security & industry.
“I am humbled and thrilled to take this next step with the support of the organization as we drive to fulfill the promise of RAD’s mission. I look forward to leading the talented RAD team as we build upon the foundation that has been laid, to deliver better solutions and support to our clients, and to capture every opportunity that is ahead of us. Together we will drive innovation and sustainable growth that benefits all of our clients, channel partners, end-users, law enforcement and the communities that they serve,” said Folmer in a statement.
“It became clear to me that the best person to lead RAD through its next phase of growth was already leading the company,” added Steve Reinharz, founder and CEO of AITX and all related subsidiaries. “Mark’s demonstrated accomplishments have earned him this position with over a year’s worth of contributions in leadership and performance. I look forward to focusing on the emerging subsidiaries RAD-G and RAD-M. I will support Mark on strategies that will push our remarkable organizations further into the future.”
