iON Cameras CEO and Founder Giovanni Tomaselli will serve as the new company's CEO. Contour's current CEO James Harrisonwill assume the role of president.

The Contour and iON brands will co-exist, and together will offer a full range of connected and wearable cameras. Contour will continue to focus on products for the higher end of the camera market, where it has traditionally been a market leader.
