Duos Technologies Group, Inc. has appointed Charles “Chuck” Ferry as CEO, based in Jacksonville, Fla. Ferry replaces Founder and Chairman Gianni Arcaini, who continues to serve on the board of directors.
Ferry comes to Duos from leadership positions in the energy and defense contracting industries, and with 26 years of active duty service in the United States Army. Prior to joining Duos, he was CEO of APR Energy. Earlier in his career, he was General Manager for ARMA Global Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of defense contractor General Dynamics. Prior to that, Ferry served as Director, Business Development and Operations at Lockheed-Martin.
During nearly 30 years in the U.S. Army, Ferry spent time in the Infantry, Ranger and Special Operations Units as an Enlisted Man, Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) and Officer. Ferry commanded at every level from Rifle Squad to Battalion and was selected to command an Infantry Brigade prior to retirement.
“On behalf of our entire organization, I would like to formally welcome Chuck as our new CEO,” said Ken Ehrman, Director and Chairman of the Nominating & Governance Committee of the Duos board. “Between his years in the mission-critical environments of active duty military service and his proven track record in the corporate world over the past decade-plus time frame, Chuck has shown himself to be a proven operator and a results-driven executive. Over the next few months, Chuck and the board will be working together to identify and execute a long-term strategy aimed at positioning Duos effectively for profitable growth and expansion in the years ahead.”
“I am excited to join the Duos team and want to thank Gianni as well as the rest of our board for their confidence in appointing me,” said Ferry. “In my previous military and civilian leadership roles, I have been exposed to and delivered many cutting-edge technologies, and I believe the solutions Duos offers are world-class. I’m looking forward to working with the very talented Duos workforce to help our customers make their businesses safer and more efficient as we take our Company into its next chapter of growth.”
