October 3, 2018 By    


Chet Reshamwala will transition to the role of CEO of DataOnline, a global provider of industrial “internet of things” solutions and the new parent company of WESROC. Reshamwala is currently COO and will succeed Martin Adams as CEO, effective Jan. 1, 2019.

Adams will transition to a strategic business development role, where he will focus on building key account relationships and helping customers improve safety, efficiency and the customer experience, the company says.

“As founders, Rob and I are thrilled to be passing the leadership of the business we established nearly 30 years ago to an accomplished, dynamic leader like Chet,” Adams says. “He brings the knowledge, enthusiasm and vision that will extend our industry leadership and carry DataOnline into our next chapter as a global authority in [industrial internet of things].”

Reshamwala led major strategic business units serving the automotive, industrial, semiconductor and internet of things industries. He began his career at Texas Instruments (Sensata Technologies) as a design engineer and moved through a variety of leadership roles in business development, marketing and engineering management. At Sensata he successfully led the integration of a $1 billion acquisition comprising six independently-run heavy transportation, aerospace and industrial businesses across 10 sites in Europe, Asia and the Americas, the company reports.

“As COO, Chet has been instrumental in driving continuous improvement in sales, customer service, technical support and manufacturing operations, as well as helping execute a successful integration with our recent acquisitions of Wikon and Independent Technologies,” says Rob Barnacle, president and founder of DataOnline. “We believe he is the perfect choice to lead the new consolidated business.”

In August, DataOnline announced the acquisition of Independent Technologies, whose brands included Enertrac, Wintel and Sheyenne Dakota, as well as WESROC, a provider of industrial internet of things solutions to the North American propane market. Its offerings include cellular, satellite and LoRa technology.
