Leica Geosystems Announces New Vice President of Geomatics in the USA

(Norcross, Ga., 12 February 2007) Bob Williams, president of Leica Geosystems Inc., Americas, has announced the promotion of Ken Mooyman to vice president of geomatics for the USA.

In his new role, Mooyman will be responsible for sales, support and product marketing for the survey, engineering and scanning businesses in the United States and will report directly to Bob Williams. Mooyman will continue to be based in San Ramon, Calif.

Long-Time Survey Industry Executive
Initially educated as a surveyor, Mooyman managed a multinational GPS services business in the mid- 1980s before joining a major surveying instrument manufacturer, where he held roles in customer training and consulting before launching into a sales career in 1991. Mooyman joined Vicinity Corp. (purchased by Microsoft) in 1999 as sales director, but quickly returned to the surveying industry when he joined laser-scanning industry pioneer, Cyra Technologies, as vice president of sales.

Experienced Leadership and Track Record of Success  
At Leica Geosystems, Mooyman started up and developed the company’s European HDS sales and support organization, immediately after Leica acquired U.S.-based Cyra Technologies in 2001. In 2003, he was promoted to senior vice president of Worldwide HDS sales and support. Under Mooyman sales guidance, the division’s revenues grew by over 200 percent. In 2006, he became general manager of Leica’s worldwide laser-scanning business where he continued to drive record growth and product innovation. Mooyman brings to his new role valuable experience in sales, support and product development as well as considerable business experience in the surveying industry.

“We would like to thank Ken for his leadership within the scanning business unit and congratulate him for his new responsibility within the Americas’ sales organization,” said Bob Williams, president of Leica Geosystems Inc., Americas. “As vice president of geomatics for the USA, Ken will still be working closely with the scanning business unit in addition to other critical business segments to ensure that we achieve our goals for 2007 and beyond.”
