“It is truly a pleasure to join the team at SyncThink, and to continue to progress the groundbreaking work being done by Dr Ghajar,” Anderson says, in the release. “In the 3 years I have been using the EYE-SYNC technology, I have repeatedly stated that the solution is a game changer, and I look forward to adding my experience to the team as we continue to objectively measure and improve disorientation disorders for so many. Being able to do so in my own backyard here in Palo Alto just makes it even more exciting.”
“It is a really exciting time for us here at SyncThink. On the heels of our latest technology release, to be able to hire someone of Scott’s caliber is a dream come true,” states SyncThink CEO Ernest Santin. “Not only is Scott the most advanced user of our technology, he is extremely well respected and influential in the industry and we believe his addition will put us in a better position moving forward, as we establish our initial footprint in Silicon Valley.
