Other new EOS appointments include Tim Twine, who has been named the Managing Director of the EOS European Headquarters office in London, and Tony Leow, the Managing Director of the EOS Asia-Pacific Headquarters office in Singapore.

Mark Patterson has been with EOS International since 1983 when, as a magna aim laude graduate from the University of California at Davis, he first joined the company as a sales associate. In 1989, he was appointed to the Board of Directors as Secretary and promoted to Vice President, Sales & Marketing.
