TechDAVIS names new board members

From page A9 | October 20, 2013 |

TechDAVIS has expanded its nonprofit board of directors to include four more technology sector leaders from the Davis area.

The additions are Pam Marrone, founder and CEO of Marrone Bio Innovations, which held a successful $61 million IPO in August; Ken Ouimet, co-founder and CEO of Engage3, a provider of on-demand, comparative retail intelligence and digital marketing services; Zachary Wochok, president and founder of the Wochok Group, LLC, an international management consulting firm; and Grayson Beck, co-founder of Aduro Laser, which develops precision laser cutting tools.

These new directors join the existing board, which includes Robert Medearis, co-founder of Silicon Valley Bank and local entrepreneur, and David Morris, founder of Capitol Corridor Ventures, tech entrepreneur and former member of the UC Davis medical faculty.

Rob White, the chief innovation officer for the city of Davis, is an ex-officio adviser to the board. Gilles Attia of DLA Piper is the board’s secretary and legal counsel.

The techDAVIS board now has representation from the industries of ag tech, mobile tech, executive leadership, advanced manufacturing, financial services and biomedicine. Additional board members will be added in the coming weeks, a news release said.

“There is a strong core of tech executives in Davis, and we are enthusiastic that such high-caliber leaders have decided to join us,” said Morris, managing director of techDAVIS.

TechDAVIS and its leaders have been proponents of building a tech business park in Davis that would provide room for local technology business to grow as well as space for new companies to locate here, close to UCD.

Although no sites have been formally selected by the community, tech sector advocates have identified several locations that would be ideal, including land northeast of the interchange at Mace Boulevard and Interstate 80 and land near Sutter Davis Hospital. In November 2012, these two areas were identified by the City Council and the Davis Innovation Park Task Force as appropriate areas for considering growth for technology sector businesses.

“TechDAVIS will continue to grow and convene opportunities for the tech sector to meet, network and collaborate, with a particular focus on developing a robust tech ecosystem in Davis and taking advantage of the significant regional asset presented by the university,” Morris said.
