Encoda Systems picked Robin Adams as the president of its automation division. A former head of engineering news and current affairs for the BBC, he also has worked for Basys and helped start the company that become Drake Automation. The company also named Robert Duncan to head its media management solutions division. Both will be based in Denver. These positions are new as a result of a restructuring in which the company created separate lines of business. Encoda did not have presidents under its previous structure.
