Responding to continued growth and increased demand for its newest product, the Montage, Vista Systems has brought on three key employees. Steve Ackerman has joined as software engineer, Stephen Chavez comes on board as PCB (print circuit board) designer, and Bill Sullivan has assumed the role of production manager.

“Ever since we introduced the Montage at NAB 2003, demand for our product has been phenomenal,” says Vista Systems president Clark Williams. "Steve, Stephen and Bill are all going to be critical assets in moving our company forward."

Prior to joining Vista Systems, Ackerman was the team lead/production manager at United Media where he was involved in all phases of product development for Multicam, a multi-camera video cutting tool that he also designed. Ackerman will be working as a software engineer for Vista Systems.

Chavez was previously a CAD design engineer at Cygnus Technologies where he designed PCBs from initial prototype to final product. He will be the link that connects Vista Systems Engineering and Production departments in the design-to-manufacturing process.

Sullivan brings extensive supervisory experience and most recently held the post of manager-technical support at Vision Engraving Systems. Prior to moving to Arizona from Connecticut, he was the supervisor/senior PCB Designer at Wentworth Laboratories. Sullivan joins Vista Systems as the new Production Manager. His areas of responsibility include production, quality control and test/calibration processes and procedures.
