A Letter from JADAK President, David Miller
Dear Valued Customers,
I have two important announcements that I’d like to pass along this month:
GSI Changes its Corporate Name to Novanta Inc.
First, effective as of May 12, 2016, JADAK’s parent company GSI will change its corporate name to Novanta Inc. (NASDAQ: NOVT) The name Novanta stands for The Innovation Advantage, as innovation and technical collaboration with customers are at the core of the company’s value proposition. While this is an exciting development for our investors, as well as customers across the Novanta Companies, your daily business interactions with JADAK will remain unchanged.

Introducing New JADAK President, Janie Goddard
Since our inception in 2000, I have had the distinct pleasure of serving as President of JADAK, LLC. It is after careful thought and consideration that I have decided to retire. My time here has been rewarding, challenging, and exhilarating. Although I will miss being a part of JADAK’s many future achievements, I can say with confidence that I leave behind the most passionate and talented group of people I’ve ever worked with. Their commitment to bringing new, innovative solutions to our OEM customers across the globe is unwavering, and has never been stronger.
While serving our customers has always been my first priority, a close second for the past few months was finding an exceptional leader to enhance and extend JADAK’s future. With that, I am pleased to announce and welcome JADAK’s new President, Janie Goddard.
Janie comes to us as an exceptionally talented executive with over 18 years of business leadership in both consumer and B-2-B sectors of the health care industry. Her wealth of experience and proven track record of bringing world-class solutions to the medical marketplace makes Janie a natural fit for JADAK. I have no doubt that her talents will greatly benefit you through new product innovation and a continued commitment to ensuring our customers’ success.
As I mentioned in the beginning of this letter, it has been an honor and a pleasure to have led JADAK for 16 years. Although difficult, I leave with much excitement for the future. Thank you, as always, for your support of JADAK.
