PD-LD, Inc., the worldwide leader in Volume Bragg Grating® (VBG®) technology, is pleased to announce the recent hire of Calvin Hsieh. He joins PD-LD's team as Sales Manager, a new position at the company, where he will focus on sales operations in the western region and client services throughout the Western Rim.
In his new role, Hsieh will be responsible for overseeing customer relations, exploring new business opportunities and identifying and selecting key suppliers in Asia.
Hsieh has more than 20 years of engineering design experience, 15 years of project management and 10 years of technical marketing, both internationally and in the U.S.
"We are happy to bring someone on board that has such a diverse and impressive background in this industry," said Tom DeBerardine, PD-LD Director of Sales. "He will help to solidify our presence in the western region of the country, as well as offer creative solutions to our customers."
In his prior position as vice president of international marketing for San-U Opto-Electronics, Hsieh helped Asian firms service U.S. customers and expand their markets internationally.
"I've already worked on both the supply end, and the customer end of this industry," said Hsieh. "I understand what is important to customers when they are selecting a component because I've been a customer myself. We are focused on creating customized solutions to solve our clients' problems."
With this new hire, PD-LD has strengthened its sales team. The company had previously serviced its entire customer base from the Pennington location, but Hsieh will be stationed in Southern California to provide a new presence and improved customer access in the West Rim and Asia.
