Veeco Instruments Inc has appointed Benjamin Loh Gek Lim (formerly senior VP, Asia Pacific Operations) to the newly created position of executive VP of Global Field Operations, which includes management of the company's global sales and service organization. Prior to joining Veeco in 2005, Mr Loh was SVP of Asia and president of Unaxis Shanghai.

Edward H. Braun, Veeco's chairman and CEO, said: "Since joining Veeco last year, Benjamin Loh has been a tremendous asset in building our business in Asia, which is now approximately 40% of our revenues and the fastest growing region for Veeco. We intend to leverage Benjamin's skills to a more significant role in growing our global sales and service business. He will have a particular focus on enhancing our market penetration, accelerating new product sales, and increasing customer satisfaction. Benjamin is the first senior Veeco corporate executive to reside in APAC, indicative of our commitment to the region."

Former head of worldwide sales, John Bulman takes on the role of senior VP, North American and Worldwide Sector Sales.
