)-- Ron van Os’s appointment to CEO, on March 31st, comes at a pivotal time for the company as it grows revenue through new distribution channels globally, continues to develop its core DNA enzyme sensor technology and prepares for the entry of its new automated product line developed through a grant from the US Department of Energy.
Mr. van Os has been with ANDalyze since the beginnings of the company’s effort to commercialize the technology. Previously in his carrier he directed the Business Development function of Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and held executive management position at Sabre Decision Technology, L1 Identity Solutions and Imaging Automation, helping to grow each of these operations toward profitable growth and exit. He has an extensive international background with achievements in Asia-Pacific, Central-Asia, Europe Middle-East and Africa, as well as a strong US domestic background. Over the last decade Mr. van Os has been instrumental in launching several new businesses, products and markets for small to mid-size private and publicly held companies.
ANDalyze has pioneered the commercialization of DNA enzyme technology in the water quality market, having brought the product from concept to full commercialization with sales in a variety of markets such as drinking water, industrial water, university research, environmental engineering, mining, food safety and pharmaceuticals. ANDalyze, which was recently selected by the water industry’s ImagineH2O Challenge as a leading water technology innovator, is now helping to solve the nations lead-in-water crisis by deploying its products to hot spots around the country to test lead levels in water.
“I am confident that ANDalyze is on a strong path towards success. Our technology was validated by the US EPA, for testing lead in water, and current product is growing in sales as we continue to invest in developing new products. Our latest innovation is to automate our technology so that it can be placed on-site and unattended at a water process line to measure metal concentrations at well under regulatory limits. And we look forward to expanding the application of our DNA enzyme sensors beyond metals detection and into organic chemical measurement of key pollutants such as pesticides. I know the team at ANDalyze is well suited for the task ahead and I am glad to be leading the organization forward,” said Ron van Os, CEO.
