David Walsh has announced that he is to step down as CEO of security monitoring group Netwatch at the end of this year.

Carlow-based Netwatch deploys advanced protection technologies including GPS tracking, audio visual detection, personal protector equipment and wireless perimeter security cordons to protect individuals and premises.

David, who co-founded Netwatch 17 years ago alongside his friend Niall Kelly, will move to the Board of Directors as a founder and major shareholder and will focus his time on the future strategy and expansion of the international group. A new CEO will be appointed in the coming months to facilitate a smooth transition.

David Walsh, Outgoing CEO, Netwatch
Carlow is at the heart of our business, and that is not going to change. We have invested heavily in Carlow, building a state of the art Communications Hub and our R+D remains located here. 

Dr Martin Scott, UK and Ireland Partner, Riverside Company
Under his stewardship Netwatch invested heavily in R&D and developed a suite of software solutions that enables the company to win large complex projects on the global stage.
