Topcon Telematics Business Unit Adds Savage and Ludchak Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Systems   
Friday, 29 August 2008

Livermore, Calif. – August 28, 2008 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has announced two appointments to its Telematics Business Unit. 

Richard Savage (right) has been named western region sales manager - telematics and Ron Ludchak (left) named eastern region sales manager - telematics.  Their territories will cover the United States and Canada.

Mark Bittner, TPS senior vice president - telematics, said, “Savage and Ludchak have proven sales records and experience in telecommunications and the construction equipment markets.   They will significantly contribute to developing Topcon’s U.S. and Canadian dealer networks for telematics.”

Topcon recently entered the telematics marketplace by forming the new business unit headed by Bittner. 

Topcon's emergence as a global player in the telematics business is the result of a joint venture with Divitech S.p.A., a telematics solution provider based in Turin, Italy, forming the joint venture company Tierra.  Topcon Tierra ™ , the product of the venture,  is a job site management system utilizing remote communications devices to provide a centralized information service on virtually every aspect of a job site.

Bittner said,  "Savage and Ludchak will be key to marketing Topcon Tierra and its myriad applications. Their experience will assist the team in developing market share worthy of the world-class Topcon name.”

Before joining Topcon, both Savage and Ludchak worked for Qualcomm, a wireless technologies and data solutions company; both directed sales teams.
