Veeco appoints executive VP of worldwide sales & service

Veeco Instruments Inc of Woodbury, NY, USA has appointed William A. Tomeo as executive VP of worldwide sales & service, which includes global field sales, account management, customer service and field support for all domestic and international Veeco customers. John K. Bulman, executive VP of worldwide sales and foreign operations (and formerly senior VP of North American and sector sales), will retire at the end of 2007.

“Bill will play a key leadership role in further developing Veeco’s worldwide sales and service organization to ensure that we maximize growth opportunities in the HB-LED/wireless, data storage, semiconductor and scientific research/industrial markets,” says CEO John R. Peeler.

Tomeo joins from JDSU, where he was most recently VP/general manager of the Service Assurance Solutions Division of the Communications Test business. His 35 years of technology industry sales, marketing and general management experience also includes a key marketing role at Agilent Technologies, and over 20 years at Hewlett Packard, where he was VP, marketing & worldwide sales for the Communications Test Solutions Group. Tomeo has also been president and CEO of several high-tech start-up companies.

“He brings to Veeco a proven track record of leading global high-tech sales organizations and developing direct and indirect channel strategies to efficiently align with a diverse product portfolio and market exposure similar to Veeco’s,” Peeler adds.
