In 2001 he joined a US based large format scanner vendor in Herndon VA as worldwide VP Sales and Marketing responsible for developing the distribution channels for their wide format color scanners. This company was acquired in 2002, and he was appointed as VP Sales and Marketing with a brief to set up a new distribution office in Japan.
