PC Card modem specialist TDK Systems Europe is to gain a new MD when the present incumbent, David Heppe, returns to his native US later this month. His replacement, Keith Marsden, was formerly MD at Grey Cell Systems, the company TDK bought in September last year. Indeed, the company only just changed its name from TDK Grey Cell back on 1 October over to TDKS Systems to bring it in line with its US and German operations. Marsden confirmed that he will be taking over the reins at TDK next week. "I suppose I keep on popping back up like an old penny," he joked. He is perhaps best remembered within the UK modem industry for his short spell -- all of 20 days -- at the helm of rival PC Card modem manufacturer, Megahertz. Marsden was there for less than one month before Megahertz was acquired by US Robotics, now part of 3Com. Furthermore, he was only been at Grey Cell Systems for 18 months before its acquisition by TDK. He has acted as a consultant for TDK since the Grey Cell acquisition. This time the prospects for TDK Systems being acquired by another venture presently look very slim indeed. David Heppe is rumoured to be joining old friends who run a video equipment manufacturer based in Grass Valley, California, and will be working on developing digital processing equipment for the broadcasting industry. ®
