None of this would have been possible without some of our long-time employees.

Brandy Clark

Brandy joined Zemax in 2009 as sales administrator and now serves as Operations Manager. Her knack for organization and creating fun keep the office running efficiently. Outside the office, she can be found at a local dog park with her pup or speeding around in her hot rod!

Toshi Nagamine

Since 2008, Toshi has been an invaluable part of the Zemax team, and is now Director of Asia Pacific Sales. Bridging the business culture from the west to the east, he develops marketing tools and sales strategies. When he’s not contemplating growth plans for Zemax, he’s taking pictures of his baby daughter.

Neil Barrett

Having started as a technical sales engineer in the European distributor in 2005, Neil now serves as Chief Information Officer for Zemax globally. When he’s not optimizing business systems and processes, you can find him walking his dog or walking around a golf course (usually looking for his lost ball).
