Dedicated Micros' Founder Mike Newton Named President of American Operations

Mike Newton, founder of Dedicated Micros and AD Group's CEO and CTO, has been named president of Dedicated Micros.

Newton will divide his time between Chantilly overseeing the strategic direction of business operations in the Americas and AD Group's worldwide headquarters in Warrington, England.

Newton’s career spans more than three decades. In the 1980s, Newton was directly responsible for bringing to market the world's first commercially viable CCTV multiplexer, which proved to be an instant success and is still recognized as a major landmark in the expansion of CCTV. In addition, the DVST product line introduced in 1991 underlines Dedicated Micros' longstanding connection with IP video and transmission. More recently, Newton was the inspiration behind Dedicated Micros' Integrated Camera Recording technology and the new 'deterministic' Closed IPTV solutions, with the latter selected to receive a 2010 ASIS Accolades Award.

Newton began Dedicated Micros in 1982 shortly after receiving a computer science degree from the university in Manchester, England. He rapidly grew the company into a multi-million dollar business with offices worldwide. In 1997, he setup AD Group where he focused his efforts on mobile CCTV solutions for aviation, video over IP—through the original incarnation of AD Network Video—and remotely monitored CCTV, with offices in the UK and US. In 2001, Newton created a single global force, encompassing all AD Group brands including Dedicated Micros, all sharing a common technology DNA—NetVu Connected—delivering a seamless video platform across mobile and fixed security applications.

"I am delighted to be able to take up this leadership position as president of Dedicated Micros, Inc. and look forward to working closely with my colleagues, our partners and customers across the Americas in the months ahead,” Newton said. “Our operation in the region, from our headquarters in Chantilly and manufacturing plant in Orlando, remains a strategically vital part of Dedicated Micros' global business and we plan to rapidly expand the presence we have in the marketplace, especially in North America, including making IP based surveillance technology genuinely accessible at the mid-range dealer, installer and customer level. This upsurge is built upon strong investment in training, technical support and research and development.”
