VANCOUVER, BC – Tasktop, the leader in Value Stream Integration, today announced David Wong has joined the company as vice president of engineering.
Wong is a seasoned innovator with more than 25 years of experience in the high-tech industry. Throughout his career he has been involved with earlier stage organizations dealing with nascent technologies that generally target emerging markets.
“We are rapidly scaling our engineering team to accelerate the rate of innovation, and with that I realized that we needed to bring in a seasoned engineering leader who has solved similarly complex problems and grown highly effective delivery teams in other domains,” said Mik Kersten, CEO and co-founder of Tasktop. “Dave is a world class technology leader, and an amazing person and thinker that will have a tremendous impact on our team and our customers.”
Previously, Wong was the VP of product development at Bycast Inc., an early stage enterprise cloud storage provider. Before that, Wong was VP of product development at PMC-Sierra, a leading provider of broadband communications and storage semiconductors. In this role, Wong oversaw the development of several product families, growing the design team to 100+, and helped coordinate the company’s successful entry into the fiber channel and SAS markets. Previously, Wong was one of the 30 founders of PMC as well as a technical leader at Packet Engines, a successful gigabit switch router start-up that was acquired by Alcatel in late 1998. Wong has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of British Columbia and holds 11 U.S. patents.
