David Crisp - Chief Executive Officer 


David, an experienced technology expert, was appointed as CEO of Aveillant in October 2011.  He has been instrumental in securing funding and building the team to enable commercialisation of the 3D Holographic Radar™ technology. 

David has a proven track record in growing new technology start-ups.  After more than 10 years working with Schlumberger in the oil and gas industry, he founded the mobile communications software company, Eden Group, where a successful exit gave a ten times return for investors.

Following the sale of Eden Group David was appointed CEO of Neopost Online Inc, a $100M funded ecommerce start-up where, in 18 months, he grew revenues to $24m, the customer base to 17,000 with shipping counters in 2,500 supermarkets across the USA.  Following a two year sabbatical sailing across the Atlantic, he joined UK wave energy device developer Orecon Ltd as CEO, where he closed a £12m A round funding with tier one VCs and successfully led the company to become one of the industry leading device developers at this time.
