TecAlliance announced it appointed David Williams as the new CEO of its OptiCat/JNPSoft operations in the United States and Canada. Williams will progressively succeed Charles Johnson and assume his new responsibilities on September 12, the company says.

After 10 years as CEO, in which he has helped grow the business to a position of significance in providing data distribution and software services to the North American mobility aftermarket, Johnson will transition to a role supporting David Williams as he enters into his new position, through year end, and then move into the role as a consultant for TecAlliance beginning in January of 2023.

“It was immediately clear that David Williams was the right fit. Under his leadership, we look forward to a vibrant and flourishing future of our USA/Canada business and the many customer organizations we serve each year,” said David Winter, executive vice president Sales at TecAlliance. “I would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to Charles Johnson for his efforts over many years in making OptiCat/ JNPSoft a successful part of the TecAlliance group.”

Williams is joining JNPSoft/OptiCat from DENSO Products & Services Americas Inc. where he has held several roles spanning almost 10 years. In his latest role as the Director of Automotive Original Equipment Service Parts Division, he oversaw the sales, distribution, development, and production of traditional service parts, diagnostic equipment, and emerging connected solutions sold to North American car makers.
