Nanosurf Inc recruits

(PresseBox) (Liestal/ Fort Lee, USA, ) Nanosurf announced the appointment of industry veteran Bill Flecky as Vice President of Sales for Nanosurf Inc effective January 1, 2009. Nanosurf AG established Nanosurf Inc as its subsidiary in the US in 2008 to react to the increasing global demand for easy-to-use nano-microscopes in science and industry.

Bill joins Nanosurf Inc from Imago Scientific Instruments where he was Vice President of Global Sales and Service. Bill brings more than 30 years of experience in management, sales, marketing, and distribution channel resource development, all of which were obtained in the semiconductor, nanotechnology, and metrology fields. Bill holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Psychology and a Master Degree in Business Administration and Technology Management.

In his new role, Bill will oversee Nanosurf Inc's sales, marketing, service, and application efforts in the United States and Canada, including managing sales channel revenue objectives, strategic direction, and engaging the application team in identifying new opportunities.

The appointment was announced by Ola Modinger, global vice president of Sales & Marketing of Nanosurf AG. Mr. Modinger said, "We welcome Bill's nanotechnology industry expertise and his extensive background developing distribution channels throughout North America. We know that he will provide outstanding leadership as we continue to identify new business opportunities in key market segments."

For more than a decade, Nanosurf has been developing and manufacturing unique scanning probe microscopes (AFM and STM) and their accessories, with a particular emphasis on making them accessible to a broad user base. This was achieved by paying special attention to the instruments' ease of use, portability, robustness, and reliability. These very same properties have led Nanosurf to be included in NASA's Phoenix Mars Mission with the first atomic force microscope to successfully measure samples on another planet, surviving and functioning under the most unfavorable conditions. The now Mars-proven Nanosurf scanner technology, which is also found in Nanosurf's AFM product lines here on earth, has long before earned the trust of leading universities and industry alike.
