NeoMedia Technologies, a provider of mobile barcode scanning solutions, has appointed James Doran as chief financial officer (CFO). He will be based at the company’s new headquarters in Boulder, Colorado.
Specialising in high-growth, turnaround and start-up entities, Doran brings a wealth of experience from a career spanning 13 years as an executive officer for both public and privately-held companies, combined with over 20 years of diverse public accounting experience. Robert Thomson, named as interim CFO in July, will return to his role as corporate controller, working closely with Doran.
Previously, Doran was responsible for all financial and administrative services at Pico-Tesla Magnetic Therapies, an entrepreneurial research and development (R&D)-stage medical device company. Prior to this he spent 10 years as chief accounting officer (CAO), corporate controller and secretary at Suntron Corporation, a US$250m to US$600m publicly-traded high-tech contract manufacturer.
During his career in public accounting, Doran specialised in auditing publicly-held companies in his capacity as a senior manager and/or partner with the Denver offices of Hein & Associates, Williams, Richey & Co, PC, Coopers & Lybrand, and McGladrey & Pullen.
