Victor, NY--Diode and fiber laser and systems company TOPTICA Photonics added Michael Vrooman to the North-American team by appointing him director of OEM business. He joins TOPTICA Photonics with more than 23 years of laser and laser instrumentation experience. He started his career with Coherent supporting laser instrumentation, high-end ultrafast oscillators and amplifiers, commercial diode modules, and DPSS lasers. Eventually leaving Coherent in 2008 as a Sr. applications engineer, Mike chose to move into a business development and OEM account management role with CrystaLaser LLC, where he successfully promoted that company's record growth.

TOPTICA says that Mike's background and scientific passion started with electrical engineering and meteorology, but growing up near one of the world's largest laser manufacturers, it was inevitable that he would end up in the photonics industry. Fascinated with emerging technology and how to transform it into beneficial products for society, Mike brings a fresh and knowledgeable view of customers' requirements. It is this perspective and Mike's personal determination to grow business that makes him an excellent fit for the position of director of OEM business.

"The combination of Mike’s application and customer experience are a terrific asset for our West Coast operation. Having Mike in our team closer to our customers will bring unparalled agility and response time to our growing customer base," said the CEO of TOPTICA, Mark A. Tolbert.

In his current role, Mike will continue to support existing OEM accounts and will expand business in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. He will operate from the West Coast to ensure a closer proximity to much of our customer base.
