Todd VanderVen joined BSI July 16, 2008 as the new President of BSI Management Systems, America.
Todd brings an extensive international experience to BSI, having managed complex businesses around the world within technology and business solutions. Since obtaining his M.B.A in Marketing and Finance from the William E. Simon Graduate School of Business Administration, University of Rochester, Todd has developed a global presence.
He began a successful career with Eastman Kodak where he worked in both the Office Imaging Division and the Health Imaging Division and had “end to end” responsibility for product development, manufacturing, marketing and market development, including global sales and distribution agreements. Todd held the title of VP Marketing and Operations for all of Kodak’s Health business outside the US, based in Geneva, Switzerland, until he returned to the US to become Chief Marketing/Strategy Officer for the Health Imaging Division in 2002.
