Multiwave Photonics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of high performance fibre-based laser and amplifier products, has appointed Bill Holtkamp as vice president of worldwide sales. Holtkamp is a senior manager joining Multiwave with 22 years of photonics industry experience, most of which stems from managing OEM sales teams at top tier laser manufacturers. He has a strong customer focus background and is familiar with fibre and DPSS laser technologies, customers, and applications. In his new role, Holtkamp will be responsible for leading and managing Multiwave’s global sales efforts.
Multiwave Photonics is in the process of establishing its main US Office in Northern California, and Holtkamp will lead that office when he starts on July 26. Holtkamp will also coordinate Multiwave's North America sales office in Missouri, in close collaboration with John Goings, North America sales manager.
