Paul Copioli, president of VEX Robotics, resigned after nine years at the helm of the educational robotics division and will move to littleBits. To ensure continuity and aid the transition period, Tony Norman, co-founder, president and CEO of Innovation First International (IFI), will step in as interim president.

During his time with VEX Robotics, Copioli led the company to become the most successful of IFI’s three wholly-owned subsidiaries.
