Intense appoints director of European sales

Intense Inc of North Brunswick, NJ, USA (which makes monolithic laser array products, high-power single-emitter laser diodes, and electro-optical subsystems) has appointed Beate Sauter as director of European sales.

Sauter has more than 25 years of international sales & marketing experience (more than half in the photonics industry). She will oversee all sales & marketing efforts in the European Union, including direct management of key accounts and channel partners in the region. She will also be responsible for business development and strategic marketing within the territory.

“As Intense continues to grow at an aggressive pace in the EU, our focus is supporting OEMs, end-users, and distribution partners across the region,” says CEO Kevin Laughlin, who adds that Sauter is a “seasoned, multilingual executive who knows how to balance the many demands of a global team... We will support her efforts by continuing to develop new and innovative, high-performance products while providing the highest level of customer support and service at a global level.”

Before joining Intense, Sauter was key account manager for South Europe for Edmund Optics. Prior to that, she held the position of sales manager, Italy, for Laser 2000, a Munich-based distributor of photonics products. She has also worked as global sales & marketing director for laser system maker Toptica Photonics.
