Kiosk manufacturer names new CEO
Boulder County Business Report talks to Tom Weaver new CEO of KIOSK as Rick Malone steps down.
LOUISVILLE - Kiosk Information Systems Inc., a Louisville-based designer and manufacturer of self-services kiosks, has named Tom Weaver its new chief executive.
Weaver replaces Rick Malone, Kiosks' founder and CEO for more than 18 years, the company announced Thursday.
Weaver has been with Kiosk for more than nine years and was its chief marketing officer and also responsible for overseeing sales.
Kiosk is an original equipment manufacturer for Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Fujitsu branded kiosks. It also builds kiosks for the B-Cycle bike-sharing program in Boulder and Denver and for AT&T and Verizon retail stores, Weaver said. Kiosk employs about 120 people and is rated the top kiosk manufacturing company in North America by independent analysts, Weaver said.
Weaver said his goal for the company is to guide it from an engineering and hardware company into a provider of a full spectrum of solutions for the self-service market and the "next generation of vending." That includes enhanced bill-pay and order entry systems and being able to incorporate mobile device technology. Weaver views the latter technology as complementary to Kiosk's existing business strategy.
Malone will remain on the company's board of directors and remain highly involved in overseeing product development, Weaver said.
