Edmund Optics has appointed former Schott executive, Gerard Robless, to its Board of Directors. His focus on the EO board will be threefold: the manufacturing and technology committee, the audit committee, and the finance and compensation committee.

Robless brings with him extensive experience in the marketing and sales of industrial optics, opto-electronic, and project display components, as well as a formidable network of contacts within the German, Japan and Taiwan markets.

‘Gerard's strengths are many, all of which will be an enormous asset to Edmund Optics,’ commented Robert Edmund, CEO. ‘His independent thinking, financial accomplishments, and broad global experience will help play a role in realising the immediate and long-term goals of our company.’

Robless spent over 25 years at Schott, starting his career in Malaysia as a regional operations manager, and retiring from his position as managing director of Schott Singapore and senior consultant overseeing the expansion of optics into Asia.
