Dedicated Computing Appoints Former Motorola Executive to Chief Technology Officer Post
Dedicated Computing, a Waukesha-based designer and manufacturer of purpose-specific compute platforms for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), announced that Bilal A. Khan has joined the company as Chief Technology Officer. In this role, Khan will drive the development and implementation of Dedicated's previously announced software and services strategy.

Khan comes to Dedicated with more than 15 years of technical leadership experience, most recently leading the R&D / Engineering activities for Nokia Siemens Networks (formerly Motorola Inc). Khan had responsibility for managing all phases of software engineering projects as part of their cellular networks technology.

"We are delighted to have Bilal join our leadership team to help drive this important transition in our company strategy," explained Don Schlidt, Chief Executive Officer for Dedicated Computing. "His significant experience and success in technology innovation, product development and operations management uniquely qualify him to take on this technology leadership role for Dedicated Computing."

Dedicated has recently made a number of investments to expand and accelerate the development of their software and services strategy, among them the June 2011 acquisition of Tushaus Computer Services, a leading provider of innovative technology solutions for businesses. Gregg Tushaus, who joined Dedicated after the transaction and now plays a leadership role for both Dedicated and Tushaus, will continue to serve as Chief Information Officer for both companies. He is responsible for the company's information technology infrastructure and service systems, and will continue to provide strategic technology leadership for key Tushaus and Dedicated clients.
