Doody started with Dalsa as its fourth employee in 1985. Early in his career at the company, he managed custom and standard product development projects and was directly involved in establishing many of Dalsa's production capabilities. He rose through the ranks to become CEO in 2007, steering the company through numerous acquisitions to become a global leader in digital imaging and semiconductor technology with 1,000 employees. In 2011, he managed the sale of Dalsa to Teledyne Technologies.
"The company is in a strong position at this time -- operationally, financially, and from the point of view of a strong technology base -- and I am also ready for the next chapter in my life. I would like to thank the employees, customers, and distribution partners who have made my career successful and satisfying," Doody said in a press release.
Upon Brian's retirement, Rex Geveden, executive vice president of digital imaging and engineered systems for Teledyne Technologies Inc., will relocate to the Waterloo area and assume responsibility for the Teledyne Dalsa business, as well as maintain his other segment responsibilities within Teledyne.
