MiCROTEC Appoints New Corvallis CEO

MiCROTEC has announced the appointment of Ofer Heyman as its new Chief Executive Officer in Corvallis, Ore. Heyman brings a wealth of experience and a background in the industry, making him a valuable addition to the MiCROTEC team.

Before returning to MiCROTEC, Heyman served an impressive 17-year tenure at Lucidyne Technologies, acquired by MiCROTEC in 2020. Beginning as an image processing engineer in 1999, he assumed roles like senior product and project manager, director of business development, and ultimately, director of operations from 2014 to 2016.

Frank Jöst, MiCROTEC Group CEO, expressed his enthusiasm about Heyman’s return, saying, “We are happy that we convinced Ofer to come back to Corvallis and support us as we continue the MiCROTEC vision for the North American market.” MiCROTEC looks forward to leveraging Heyman’s leadership and industry experience to further strengthen its position as a pioneer in wood scanning solutions.
