Maxxum, Inc., a regional leader in Secure IT Asset Disposition services, today announced that Ray Davey has joined the company as its Chief Technology Officer. Davey's charter is to further develop the company’s product and service capabilities, define technology strategies, and provide technical oversight for company operations.
Rich Woodward, Maxxum’s CEO, explains, "Ray's IT leadership experience and deep understanding of business strategy are great assets to the company. We've grown nicely over the past 16 years; with Ray's focus on new product and service development, aimed at strategic vertical markets, we expect to increase our value to clients."
Davey has spent more than 20 years with technology and professional services companies like Hewlett-Packard, EDS, Cap Gemini, ESP, and Lorton Data.

"Maxxum is the last link in a chain of custody for sensitive data such as Protected Health Information (PHI) and other equipment-bound proprietary material. The number of devices storing information using non-volatile technology is growing at an alarming rate,” states Davey. “Responsible entities must implement strategies to prevent unintentional data breaches when devices and equipment reach end-of-life. It’s my job to help Maxxum’s clients manage this risk by providing best-in-class secure data disposition services,” he continued.
