CHANTILY, Va.—CCTV specialist AD Group, the parent company of Dedicated Micros Inc., on April 12 announced the appointment of John Dolan as vice president of business development, for its new AD Network Video enterprise video arm in the Americas. Dolan has a strong surveillance pedigree built-up over 25 years of system sales for the military, aerospace, transport and, most recently, fire sectors.

In his new role, Dolan will be working closely with John Bonsee, who was recently appointed as AD Network Video's SVP for business development and sales, and other members of the fast growing AD Network Video team, including Frank Hulme as sales engineer. AD Network Video offers a one-stop resource for enterprise scale video surveillance projects where consultants, installers and end users are planning to integrate the latest NetVu Connected CCTV technology from AD Group, which includes Dedicated Micros high end server products. Moving ahead, John Dolan and his colleagues at AD Network Video will also benefit from additional support provided by the Dedicated Micros, Inc. office here, which now has an expanded AD Group focus.

John Dolan's connection with AD Group goes back to 1997 when he started work at its Atlanta office. Since then, his specific areas of expertise have included the transport sector where he was tasked with promoting the award-winning TransVu mobile CCTV system, and overseeing its successful application in a number of large-scale school bus projects.

Dolan's long-standing responsibility for aviation sales, on behalf of AD Group subsidiary AD Aerospace, is set to continue in his new AD Network Video role as well as support for military and homeland security sales of specialist surveillance cameras from ISD (Innovative Sensor Developments). Recently, Dolan's responsibility was extended to sales of the FireVu CCTV-based video smoke detection solution, from AD Group's D-Tec division in the region, experience which should prove invaluable given the wider system integration focus of his AD Network Video position.

Prior to working for AD Group, Dolan was employed at both Loral and Honeywell in various engineering and management positions.
