Mr. Aarts has managed major scanning projects around the world in a wide range of industries and applications. Mr. Aarts was responsible for worldwide training and technical development of laser scanning clients and technical representatives of Leica Geosystems. He was responsible for a staff of application engineers and trainers at Leica Geosystems HDS, Inc., San Ramon, California. Leica Geosystems acquired Cyra in 2001 and has maintained its position as the world’s leading manufacturer of 3D laser scanning systems and point cloud processing software. For eight years Mr. Aarts was a member of the executive management team developing and selling 3D laser scanning (high definition surveying) and imaging systems to new market segments worldwide. His first role at Cyra was managing sales for the western region of the United States. He quickly moved to national and international responsibilities. In a sales role Mr. Aarts made the first commercial sale and the first multiple-order sale of laser scanners, consistently exceeding sales targets. He was instrumental in creating the marketing and sales strategy, and introducing the laser scanning systems to developing markets in North America, UK, Holland, Germany, Scandinavia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, Brazil, and New Zealand. He recruited, engaged, and developed a domestic and international dealer network for Cyra. He negotiated dealer agreements and was responsible for the training of dealers and customers in the operation and deployment of this new laser scanning technology. He developed programs to educate over 300 client companies worldwide on how to effectively use and sell the value proposition of the technology to their customers. During this time he managed the sales and marketing activities of over 40 major dealers worldwide. In addition, he was responsible for applications engineering, training, and product applications for the company. Mr. Aarts has also been instrumental in developing many significant improvements in the hardware and software aspects of the company’s product line as well as its use, calibration, and accuracy as he was a member of the development team for the HDS 3000 scanner, the precursor to the new C10 scanner. Mr. Aarts was formerly the president and CEO of Optira, Inc. one of the leading laser scanning service providers in the United States. He is currently president and CEO of Innovation Technology Partners, Inc. (InNovTec) an international 3D imaging and laser scanning service provider and professional engineering services company He continues to lead the industry in the utilization and application of 3D laser scanning and as-built documentation. Throughout his career, Mr. Aarts has demonstrated management and leadership expertise in managing large complex projects in a complex environment.
