[Editor] D.R., tell us about your experience with Varian over the past 14 years.
D.R. Ollech: I was involved in two principal areas: Project Management (PM) and Design & Construction. Early on, I was a Sr. Project Manager in the Eastern quarter of the United States (U.S.) – responsible for the coordination and delivery of Varian’s treatment and software systems to customers. In addition to the delivery, the projects I managed included installations of various linear accelerator models ranging from TrueBeams to Clinac 600C/D’s, as well as treatment software such as VARiS/ARIA and Eclipse. I was also involved with working on BrainLAB Novalis units. Further into my career, I directed the newly-formed Western PM Region, leading a team of seven PMs covering the western half of North America, including Alaska and Hawaii.
