Psion, the UK's homegrown handheld computing company, has appointed David Levin as its new chief executive.
Levin joins Psion from financial publisher Euromoney Publications, where he served as finance director from 1994 and chief operating officer from 1996.
Psion's involvement in Symbian, a joint venture that is developing a software platform for smart phones, will be high on Levin's list of priorities when he takes up his new post on 22 February 1999.
The appointment is likely to take some of the pressure off Psion's current chairman David Potter, who at 54 had heart surgery last year.
"In my role as Executive Chairman, I am very much looking forward to working closely with David to drive Psion's development and growth forward," said Potter in a statement.
