Ex-Mosaid chief surfaces at COM DEV

George%20Cwynar.jpgFormer MOSAID CEO George Cwynar returns from the wilderness as president of COM DEV Canada, one of four divisions established by the Cambridge, Ontario-based firm after a recent reshaping of the company. Mr. Cwynar, who relinquished the top job at MOSAID in April of last year, will oversee COM DEV’s Ottawa-based Canadian operations, which makes microwave and optical products for military and space. Prior to his 12 years as MOSAID boss, Mr. Cwynar spent 13 years at MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. There, he formed government contacts that will doubtlessly prove valuable to his new employer, which has tasked him with looking after initiatives that involve the Canadian government and international agencies such as NASA and the European Space Agency. Mr. Cwynar’s appointment coincides with the reassignment of two of COM DEV’s top executives. Michael Williams, VP of the company’s space electronics division, is made president of the international products segment, while Michael Pley is promoted to COO, with responsibility for operations at all four divisions, including COM DEV’s US and Europe businesses.
