Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2012. Senova Systems today announced the appointment of Christopher van Ingen to its Board of Directors. Mr. van Ingen was most recently President of Agilent Technologies Bio-Analytical Measurement business where he oversaw the growth of that business from $1 billion to over $2 billion in annual revenues in less than 6 years. Mr. van Ingen currently serves as Chairman of Bruker EST, Inc., a provider of superconducting-based materials and devices; Chairman of Accelrys, Inc., a provider of scientific informatics solutions for the Life Sciences & Applied markets; and Director of Promega Corporation, a provider of Life Sciences reagents and system solutions. In addition, Mr. van Ingen also serves as a strategic consultant to several companies in the Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis instrumentation industry.
“I am very excited to join Senova Systems’ Board because the company is poised to revolutionize a nearly billion dollar market that has not seen a technology advance of this magnitude in over 70 years,” comments Mr. van Ingen.
“I look forward to helping Senova Systems evolve from a technology development company to a fully integrated global provider of sensor-based measurement solutions. This is an exciting time for Senova Systems as they have recently completed an impressive equity financing, and now face the challenges of transitioning and growing the organization to meet the demands of an existing customer base as well as the pursuit of novel opportunities which are enabled by their smart sensor technology,”
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Chris to the Senova Systems team. Chris brings a wealth of knowledge in operations, marketing, and global distribution strategy to our team. Senova Systems will soon be launching its first products targeted to the life science, food and beverage, dairy, and cosmetics markets, and we are certain that Chris will help guide our growth strategy as we pursue these markets through direct sales channels and through important joint development partnerships,” said Lee Leonard, President and CEO of Senova Systems.
