Velociti Inc., a provider of technology deployment services, announced that Deryk Powell has been named president of the company, in addition to his duties as COO.

Powell will be responsible for the overall management of the company’s day-to-day activities. He succeeds Michael Kahn, Velociti’s majority shareholder, who remains chairman and CEO of Velociti and its sister company, CSTK.

The announcement comes as the company prepares to move to its new 41,000-square-foot state-of-the-art operational headquarters in Riverside, MO. The decision to move was necessitated by the company’s expanded facility needs required to accommodate its growing international and domestic customer base.

Powell joined CSTK as a sales representative in 1994; he was eventually promoted to a division general manager. He later became general manager of Velociti’s predecessor. 

The company also announced that Tim Kats has been promoted to the position of vice president and general manager. Kats will be responsible for supervising Velociti’s field operations and facilities. He joined the company in 2000.
