Antonio Requena has been named general manager of the newly formed optics division at Leybold Optics of Germany. In addition to the former optics business unit, which was handling 3-D coating, ophthalmics and precision optics, the new optics division also includes the activities previously performed by Leybold's customer support and web coating units. Karl Matl, former manager of the optics business unit, is now the director of sales and marketing for the optics division. Requena, a 41-year-old manager who started at Leybold in Barcelona in 1990, will keep his position as president of Leybold Optics USA, though George Kim has been named vice president there to help run the U.S. operation. Requena will report to Kurt Hakansson, who has been chief executive of Leybold since last October.
