TecAlliance appoints David Williams as CEO of OptiCat/ JNPSoft

TecAlliance has appointed David Williams as the new CEO of its OptiCat / JNPSoft operations in the United States and Canada. Williams will progressively succeed Charles Johnson. After 10 years as CEO, in which he 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 Williams as he enters into his new position, through year-end, and then move into the role as a consultant for TechAlliance beginning January 2023.

Williams is joining JNPSoft / OptiCat from DENSO Products & Services Americas 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. Prior to this, he worked for Crane Controls as the vertical market leader in the commercial vehicle products business unit.

Before that, he spent 13 years with Toyota Motor Sales in various positions in increasing responsibility ranging from working with franchise dealers in the field to being the product manager for pick-up trucks.

Suit coat discarded on the back of a folding chair, sleeves rolled up, he shakes the hand of a rider climbing out of the truck and holds the door for the next fleet manager in line. The battery-electric truck quietly rolls away to take another lap around Orlando.
