Satisloh Makes Young VP of Business Development/Key Accounts

By Staff
Satisloh North America has appointed Steele Young as its new Vice President of Business Development/Key Accounts. Young has been with the company for 27 years and in the optical industry for 35. “Steele has become the familiar face of our company for many years, especially in the Western region of North America. During this time, he has established integrity with a remarkable capital equipment sales track record that is seemingly untouched in the ophthalmic industry,” said Pete Lothes, CEO/President of Satisloh North America. “This new position is a natural transition, it will utilize the skill set he’s developed over the years and further improve our customers' experience—especially in large scale and complex automated projects. Additionally, his intimate understanding of our customer base will put an even stronger customer-focused role on our executive team.”
Before joining Satisloh, Steele earned a degree in Precision Optics and worked in that industry, manufacturing laser guided and infrared weapon systems, as well as mass production optics for big screen TVs. In his new role, Steele joins Satisloh North America’s Executive Management Team: Gregg Gerschke, CFO; Chris Seifert, SVP Technology/Service; Ian Gregg, VP Sales Operations; Steve Schneider, VP Consumables; and David Blotz, Controller.
