Roks joined Teledyne with the acquisition of Teledyne Dalsa Inc. in 2011, serving as executive vice president and general manager of the company’s professional and scientific imaging division. Before that, he worked for Phillips Semiconductors and its spinoff companies. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Twente, a master of science degree from the Technical University of Eindhoven, and a bachelor of science degree from the College of Advanced Technology in Breda, all in the Netherlands.
