Alumnus Vikram Manikonda named president and CEO of Intelligent Automation, Inc.

Alumnus Vikram Manikonda (ECE Ph.D. 1997) has been appointed president and chief executive officer of Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), Rockville, Md. He is a former advisee of Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR).

“The heart of IAI is its innovative research, which has resulted in many important advances for our customers, generally in very customer-specific applications. While research will remain the foundation of IAI’s work, the promotion of Dr. Manikonda to President and CEO of IAI will bring a new focus on products and technology transition, including commercial products”, said Dr. Leonard Haynes, Founder of IAI.

Manikonda succeeds Dr. Joseph Schwartz, who served as the Company's CEO since 1997.

Manikonda joined IAI in 1999. He was named director of IAI’s Distributed Intelligent Systems Group in 2001, its vice president in 2004, and president in 2008. As president, Manikonda demonstrated a track record of delivering revenue growth, leading and managing IAI's innovative research and development, and transitioning IAI’s research into products in a wide range of applications of interest to government and industry.

At Maryland, Manikonda helped develop MDLe, a motion control language for robotics, and was manager of the Intelligent Servosystems Laboratory (ISL).
