Neato Names Nedder CEO

Neato Robotics has named Thomas Nedder as the company’s new CEO.

With more than 25 years of experience in the tech industry, Nedder most recently was head of Sony Electronics in Germany.

“The projected growth for robotic vacuums is incredibly exciting and presents unique sales and marketing opportunities especially across Europe and the U.S.,” said Nedder. “I believe Neato has the right ingredients— innovative technology, consumer-driven product development and a loyal customer base— to capitalize on the projected industry growth in the next five years.”

Prior to his time at Sony, Nedder was general manager of NEC Deutschland, director of international sales at Edding, vp/sales and marketing at Proxima, and distribution manager at Sharp Micro-Electronics.
