Stocks in this article: ADEP

PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions and services, today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Rob Cain as President and Chief Executive Officer succeeding John Dulchinos, who has resigned as President and Chief Executive Officer and as a director of the Company.

As new CEO, Mr. Cain, 47, brings to the company over 25 years of experience in the high tech and capital equipment industries combined with a mechanical engineering and graduate business education. He has been a key figure in the turnaround and return to double digit growth of multiple companies, most recently at Telanetix as COO and prior to that at Avure Technologies as the SVP of Operations. He is also a Hale Capital Partners Operating Partner. Working with Adept over the past several months in an advisory capacity, Mr. Cain has been a primary architect of the restructuring plan adopted by the company and now leads the corporate vision towards an increased emphasis on profitable growth in both its traditional markets and the new exciting mobile business.

"Rob came to our attention because of his strong execution skills, his proven ability to lead top performing teams and his track record in driving shareholder value," said Mike Kelly, Adept's Chairman. "We have been impressed by his emphasis on a culture of accountability and execution as well as a vision for top and bottom line growth, developing internal talent while reaching outside for new skills. Additionally, his straightforward style and relentless positive energy is the kind of leadership we want at Adept."

Cain stated, "Adept is one of the world's great automation companies and a global brand, with a proud history of innovation, outstanding talent and market leading positions in many of its product lines and services. It's an honor to join its leadership team and have the opportunity to build on its success. Our future is focused on profitable growth, and increasing our market share through the development of innovative products and services that add value to our customers. Adept's employees are some of the brightest minds in the automation business and have delivered solutions to many of the world's leading companies. I look forward to serving with them," Cain went on to say.
