UUV Aquabotix Ltd has named David Batista as Chief Executive Officer, succeeding the company’s current CEO and founder, Durval Tavares, who will assume the role of Chief Technology Officer.

 
In his new role as CTO, Tavares will lead development of the company’s underwater ROV (remotely operated vehicle) and Hybrid AUV/ROV (autonomous underwater vehicle/remotely operated vehicle) technology, with a particular focus on application in high-demand verticals such as military, security and law enforcement, aquaculture and marine construction and maintenance.
 
“When I founded Aquabotix six years ago, my goal was to develop and build leading-class technology designed to change how we view the underwater world,” said Tavares. “This remains my goal to this day. I look forward to devoting my time to leading the development of our new technologies and working with David to bring several new innovations to market in the near future.” 
 
Batista joins Aquabotix with more than 20 years of experience working with small-cap listed companies, both in the U.S. and Australia. He is the former Senior Managing Director of independent financial services firm Viriathus Holdings LLC., and previously held roles with HPC Capital Management Corp., SoundView Technology Group and Lehman Brothers Inc. A graduate of C.W. Post College, Batista also has several post-graduate qualifications from The New York Institute of Finance.
