Dedrone, a provider of airspace security technology, announced that Aaditya Devarakonda has been elected the new chief executive officer and board member of Dedrone.

Devarakonda joined Dedrone’s advisory team in 2019, then formally joined the company as president and chief business officer in 2020. He takes over from Joerg Lamprecht, who co-founded Dedrone, led the company since its establishment in 2014, and will now serve as executive chairman.

“I am proud to lead this accomplished team,” Devarakonda said. “On behalf of myself and Dedrone, we wish to express our appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Lamprecht, for his support and leadership. Joerg established and built our remarkable company with his co-founders, Rene Seeber and Ingo Seebach, and I am excited to continue their vision of airspace security. Dedrone’s future is bright and we are thankful Joerg will remain close at hand to support this next chapter in our company’s success.” 

“Aaditya is the ideal leader for Dedrone as the company looks to scale and remain the top global provider of airspace security technology,” Lamprecht said. “I am especially proud of how well Aaditya has led Dedrone during his first few months at the company, through an unprecedented global crisis. His focus, energy and exceptional business acumen will serve our company and customers. I am proud of what our team has built since Dedrone’s establishment in 2014 and look forward to the future of Dedrone.”
