Ann T. Douglas has joined R2Sonic in the capacity as Vice President of Operations. "It is a great pleasure to join R2Sonic and, once again, work with the team that created the first portable commercial shallow water multibeam echosounder systems."
Ann has over 20 years experience in operations in domestic and multi-national corporations. Most recently, Ann was Director of Operations for Iconix Video, Inc., a leading manufacturer of advanced high-definition camera systems. At Iconix, Ann implemented manufacturing and inventory controls that allowed inventory values to be reduced by 27% while increasing on-time delivery performance.
Prior to Iconix, Ann spent four years as VP Operations for Reson, Inc. While at Reson, Ann was instrumental in implementing the strategic overhaul of the company's supply chain. This resulted in the delivery of standard sonar products within 3 weeks lead time, with unsurpassed product quality and shipment accuracy.
"At R2Sonic, I look forward to building operational capacity to deliver and support sonar systems deliverable with short lead times, while maintaining the highest level of quality control. The simplicity and flexibility of the Sonic sonar architecture, combined with our innovative lean manufacturing model, will allow us to efficiently scale the business to meet the objectives of delivering production sonars with short lead times and shipment accuracy that surpasses what we were able to achieve in the past."
