TORONTO — On June 7, Baylin Technologies Inc. announces that Leighton Carroll has agreed to join the Company as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective June 21, 2021. Mr. Carroll succeeds Randy Dewey, who is stepping down from his management and board role to pursue other opportunities but will be staying on in an advisory capacity for an interim period to support the transition to the new President and Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Carroll brings experience in wireless networks, holding positions within AT&T, including as leader of business units within AT&T and as Merger & Integration Executive. In his role as Merger & Integration Executive, he led the acquisitions of Cricket Wireless and the divested properties of Alltel from Verizon, increasing growth of each business beyond target levels. Leighton joins Baylin as the former President of QuadGen, a global network and engineering services company, which in his tenure grew through increased revenue and customer diversification. During his career, Mr. Carroll has demonstrated corporate leadership and the ability to achieve significant revenue and customer growth, increasing value for stakeholders.
“I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to lead a company with world-class products and reach and particularly excited about the engineering talent at Baylin and their potential to drive growth and innovation,” commented Mr. Carroll. “I am eager to move the business forward and engage our customers to better serve their needs.”
Jeffrey C. Royer, Chairman of the Board of Directors, remarked that “Leighton is an ideal choice to lead Baylin in its efforts to drive long-term, profitable growth and shareholder value. We are looking forward to Baylin achieving its undoubted potential under his leadership.”
Mr. Dewey said, “I am very proud to have to have led the Company over the past six years. We have built a strong foundation and I wish the Company and its people every success. I look forward to working with Leighton over the coming weeks to support a seamless transition and to my next adventure in business.”
Baylin stated that Mr. Carroll looks forward to meeting investors soon after he assumes his new role.
