Randy Koopman's career path has led him from field service engineer to technical sales representative to regional manager to director and, finally, to his current position as senior director for Waters Global Services. The company's waters products are used by pharmaceutical, life science, biochemical, industrial, academic, and government organizations working in research and development, quality assurance, and other laboratory applications including regulatory compliance.
“It has been a great ride with more ahead,” states Koopman, a 1978 chemistry major. “If someone had laid out this vision for me during the graduation ceremonies at UMM, I would have been awe struck. My thanks go out to the students and faculty of UMM for playing a key role in my life and career.”
