Kespry, an artificial intelligence platform provider, is restructuring its leadership in order to widen its mark on the industrial drone industry. The company announced George Mathew will be taking the reins from Paul Doersch as CEO and chairman. Doersch will remain a shareholder of the company.
Kespry’s drone software, hardware and cloud services are designed to help organizations transform the way they capture, analyze and share business insights. The company’s customers span aggregates, construction and surveying industries.
“The founding team at Kespry has done a remarkable job,” said John Vrionis, general partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners and a member of the Kespry board of directors. “We now have the opportunity to accelerate our growth tremendously, and George has a proven track record and a true knack for building high-growth, sustainable businesses at a global scale. For the past several years, he has lived at the intersection of analytics, Big Data and cloud computing, all of which are critical to where the industrial drone market is going as the use of drones and the data they provide spreads globally.”
Mathew comes with 20 years of experience in technology and software, having most recently held the position of COO of Alteryx, a self-service analytics software provider.
“Kespry has quickly and methodically carved out a compelling and highly differentiated position in the industrial drone space,” said Mathew. “By developing a highly integrated end-to-end solution that provides customers unique aerial insights and analytical models, Kespry is enabling markets such as insurance, aggregates and construction to imagine new uses that were not previously possible.”
