April 7, 2014 – Travis Merrill has joined Flir Systems Inc. in the newly created position of senior vice-president and chief marketing officer. Reporting to president and CEO Andy Teich, Merrill most recently served as vice-president of marketing for Samsung Electronics America, where he led the Galaxy Tab marketing initiatives from 2011 to 2014.
“With the recent introduction of the Flir One iPhone thermal camera accessory and the low-cost Lepton thermal micro-camera core, we expect Flir’s customer base and market breadth to expand rapidly into markets where effective brand-building and world-class marketing will create significant value,” said Teich.
