Dalzell established Onelan in 1988 and the company has focused on digital signage and IPTV for the last 12 years.
He led the company from its humble beginnings in his garage, to the expanding organisation it is now, with a turnover in excess of £5m and employing over 40 staff worldwide.
He was particularly proud of Onelan winning two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise; one for Innovation, the other for International Trade
Nick Randall, Onelan’s chairman said “David will be much missed. Over the past two years, he strengthened the board and management teams with a view to securing the long-term future of the company. We continue to pursue David’s vision.”
Everyone at AV Magazine passes on their condolences to all at Onelan at this difficult time.
