Invitrogen said this week that Bernd Brust has been promoted to the newly created post of senior vice president of sales for Europe and the Americas. Brust will be responsible for leading the company’s sales strategy in those areas, and will assume the responsibilities previously held by John Delli Santi, who resigned as general manager of Invitrogen’s North American operations to pursue other interests, Invitrogen said.
Brust joined Invitrogen in 2004 as general manager and vice president of European operations. Before joining Invitrogen, he was general manager of sales and marketing for GE Medical Systems Information Technologies.
Susan Lambert, currently VP of European sales, will succeed Brust as GM and VP of European operations. Lambert joined Invitrogen in 1975.
