Navitar, a leading manufacturer of precision optics and imaging system components, has made a number of new staff promotions and appointments. The company has named David Manzi as chief technology officer, Steven Morales as general manager of Special Optics, and Thomas Young as controller of Special Optics.
As chief technology officer, David Manzi will be responsible for managing the development of new products, directing corporate business strategy, and identifying new market focus areas. Manzi was formerly president and chief executive officer of Special Optics.
Steven Morales, who has worked for Navitar’s Special Optics division for more than 14 years, has been promoted from sales manager to general manager. His new role involves overseeing all administrative functions of the company, including leading and directing employees and ensuring efficient and proper implementation of policies and procedures.
‘Steven is ideal for the role of general manager, based on his vast experience with customers and the key part he played in guiding the company through the acquisition by Navitar,’ said Manzi.
In addition, Tom Young has joined Special Optics as controller. Young replaces Matthew Thomas, who retired in July. He comes to Special Optics with more than 20 years of diversified accounting experience in manufacturing, business services, construction, advertising and non-profit healthcare.
Manzi, Morales and Young are all based in the division’s Wharton, New Jersey office.
