NUBURU promotes Andrew Dodd to VP global sales
High-power blue laser technology firm NUBURU Inc of Centennial, CO, USA (which was founded in 2015) has promoted Andrew Dodd to VP global sales, overseeing and managing worldwide sales including, but not limited to, distribution channels, global forecast, strategic plan, tactical implementation, and sales team growth.
“Andrew has been very successful in growing NUBURU’s business in North America and expanding into Europe and parts of Asia in the past two and a half years,” comments co-founder Jean-Michel Pelaprat. “It is natural to expand for the rest of the world. Andrew will continue to work from Michigan and travel often to Centennial and around the world,” he adds.
“I have enjoyed the last couple of years at NUBURU developing an understanding of customer requirements and specifications,” says Dodd. “I am looking forward to realizing the sales potentials as the unique product specifications become available.”
Dodd has over 30 years of experience in laser development and material processing. Prior to NUBURU, he spent 20 years with GSI Lumonics, Amada WeldTech and, most recently, as sales director for BLM Group North America. Dodd graduated from Southampton University with a degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics and earned postgraduate diplomas in Business Management from Warwick University and Welding Engineering from Teesside University.
