SkyeTek Updates Leadership with Promotions, New Hire

SkyeTek Inc., a manufacturer of embedded radio frequency identification products, reported Tuesday that it has made three changes to its executive staff. The Westminster, Colo.-based company said it has promoted Martin Payne to senior vice president of sales and marketing and Wally Cooledge to vice president of sales for North America. SkyeTek also said it has hired Jeff Battin as vice president of engineering. In his new role, Payne adds worldwide sales and business development to his existing responsibilities of marketing, product management and sales operations, SkyeTek said. Cooledge, the company added, will rely upon his previous experience as sales director for the Western United States to manage SkyeTek’s largest sales region. And Battin hails from SmartSynch, where he held a similar title after stints with Harris Corp., Wavtrace, Motorola and AT&T.
