Biamp’s New VP of Operations
Biamp has appointed John Major as the company’s new Vice President of Operations.
In this role, Major oversees all elements of the company’s supply chain, manufacturing, and order fulfillment, ensuring that excellence in quality remains central to the company’s customer value proposition and global growth strategy.
The control provided by having direct management of its manufacturing process enables Biamp to offer shorter lead times for customer orders, guarantee consistently high quality levels, and maintain more effective cost and inventory management, the company says.
Prior to joining Biamp, Major established the Portland-based professional services firm Summit Core Strategies LLC, which supports clients in developing and implementing manufacturing and supply chain strategies that align to the needs of their businesses.
Biamp says Major’s philosophies of continuous improvement is based on the fusion of strategy deployment, lean thinking, six sigma structured problem solving, and kaizen methodology, which he refined and deployed while serving as Vice President of Operations or similar roles at companies like Radisys, Planar, Tektronix, and Xerox.
