He succeeds Christopher Miller, who has served as interim CRO but will stay with DZYNE as chief of strategic pursuits and board member, the company said Tuesday.
As CRO, Levy will oversee revenue operations for the company’s long-endurance UAS platforms, artificial intelligence-driven software offerings and other defense technology products.
Prior to DZYNE, Levy spent nearly two decades at General Atomics, where he served as senior director for aeronautical systems and helped build a program focused on UAS development, manufacturing and sustainment meant to support U.S. defense requirements.
He also worked at Boeing (NYSE: BA) for 17 years, serving as a project manager and senior engineer, according to his LinkedIn profile.
“David has a deep understanding of the industry, our customers’ needs, and what is required to deliver world-class defense capabilities for U.S. and allied governments,” said Matt McCue, co-founder and president of DZYNE.
“We have every confidence in David’s ability to meet and exceed our expectations for continued rapid growth across our long endurance and expendable UAS programs,” added McCue.
