Ken Mooyman appointed as Head of Leica Geosystems Scanning Business

(Heerbrugg, 15 March 2006)  In a move that provides valuable continuity for its scanning business, Leica Geosystems announced that Ken Mooyman, former Sr. Vice President of Sales & Support for the High-Definition Surveying (HDS) Division, has been promoted as head of Leica Geosystems laser scanning business unit. Leica Geosystems is widely recognized as the industry’s leading vendor of laser scanners and software for surveying and engineering professionals.

Experienced Leadership and Success in Leica Geosystems’ HDS Business
In his new role, Ken Mooyman will be responsible for the company’s line of HDS™ laser scanners and companion Cyclone™ and CloudWorx™ software, which are used for conducting accurate as-built surveys of sites and structures. Mr. Mooyman brings to his new role valuable experience in Leica’s laser scanning business as well as considerable experience in the surveying industry. At Leica, Ken Mooyman started up and developed the company’s European HDS Sales organization, immediately after Leica acquired US-based Cyra Technologies in 2001. In 2003, Mr. Mooyman was promoted to Sr. Vice President of Worldwide HDS Sales & Support. Under Mr. Mooyman’s sales guidance, the division’s revenues grew by 149% for FY05 over FY04, with record quarterly revenues of $7.2 million (9.3 million CHF) for the last reported FY05 financial quarter.

Long-Time Survey Industry Executive
Educated as a surveyor, Mr. Mooyman managed a GPS services business in the early 1980’s before joining a major surveying instrument manufacturer, where he held roles in customer training and consulting before launching into a sales career. Ken joined Vicinity Corp. in 1999 as Sales Director but quickly returned to surveying when he joined laser scanning industry pioneer Cyra Technologies.

“Ken has been instrumental in helping Leica’s laser scanning business achieve its recent extraordinary growth, so we are excited to be handing the reigns of this business to someone of Ken Mooyman’s experience and capabilities.  Laser scanning will continue to be our priority growth area. Ken will bring continuity to our efforts in this direction. We very much look forward to Ken’s further contributions toward our ongoing success,” stated Clement Woon, President of the Geosystems Division.
