Ray “Woody” Woodward and Bernd Brust

Open Biosystems has named Ray “Woody” Woodward its new vice president of sales and marketing. Woodward is former North American general manager for Miltenyi Biotec.
Open Biosystems said Woodward’s 30 years of experience marketing in the medical device industry will be an asset as the company markets its RNA interference and genomics technologies.

Invitrogen said this week that it has promoted Bernd Brust to the newly created position of senior vice president of sales for Europe and the Americas.
“Brust will be responsible for leading the company's Europe and Americas sales strategy, including optimizing direct sales force levels, customer relationship development, and identifying new customer segments and regions that provide opportunity for future growth,” the company said.

Brust was previously general manager and vice president of European operations at Invitrogen.
