As the Director of Sales for our Americas region, I'm part of the amazing sales team here at Edmund Optics (EO) - a truly global optics and imaging company that manufactures and supplies the worldwide technical community with precision optical components and sub-assemblies. I’m constantly looking for ways that staff development, process improvements, bridge-building, and pragmatic solutions can improve the overall customer experience. I originally parlayed a passion for astronomy and telescopes into a career in optics, and I haven't looked back since. With the "century of the photon" in full swing, it's an exciting time to help EO's customers create life-saving and world-changing innovations!

My Biggest Accomplishment
My biggest professional accomplishment has been – and will always be – the success of our customers, my teams, and EO as a whole. That being said, I’m especially proud of my roles in developing the sales team and constantly evolving and refining sales and corporate strategy.
