Gregg Fales

Getting the right products in the hands of our customers has changed dramatically in my years with Edmund Optics. The internet has forever altered how we communicate with our customers. Our target markets have ridden the technology bubbles and booms, global recessions, the creation of the Eurozone and expansion of Chinese capitalism, forcing us to constantly evolve in uncertain times. And our industry has seen its fair share of consolidation, mergers, and acquisitions, indelibly shifting the competitive landscape. Throughout that time, Edmund Optics has steadfastly believed that if we have the right products and we deliver them when customers need them, we can prosper through all of these changes. I’m proud to be a part of determining what those right products are, and every day I’m excited to learn how customers have integrated our products into their equipment. And, just as importantly, I’m eager to learn about the challenges our customers face – solving those challenges will fuel our next great product ideas.Right Quotation Mark
