Former Labsphere CEO Takes Helm at Ocean Optics
DUNEDIN, Fla., Sept. 7, 2011 — Optical sensing equipment provider Ocean Optics has named Kevin Chittim as its president. Chittim’s appointment follows the move of former President Robert Randelman to divisional chief executive for Ocean Optics’ parent company, Halma plc.
Chittim formerly served as CEO of Ocean Optics' sister Halma company, Labsphere, where he led the light measurement systems provider through a merger with SphereOptics in 2010 and the establishment of a wholly owned subsidiary in Shanghai, China. Before joining Labsphere in 2007, he held executive positions at Radiant Imaging, Melles Griot, Newport and Spectra Physics.
"Kevin brings significant knowledge of the photonics marketplace and the potential to make a substantial impact in broadening the range of applications and bringing them to market faster throughout the world," Randelman said.
