GEGeneral Imaging VP of sales and marketing America : General Imaging, the exclusive licensee for GE-branded digital cameras, announced the promotion of Rene Buhay to senior vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas. Buhay’s new position was effective Sept. 1. He had been serving as vice president of sales for North America. “Rene has done a wonderful job for us in our first year of existence, and it gives me great pleasure to reward his vast skills and accomplishments with this promotion,” said Hiroshi “Hugh” Komiya, chairman and CEO of General Imaging. “He has helped take this company from a total unknown to a major force in the marketplace in a very short time. He is the channel architect who made this all happen.”

In addition, GE cameras have appeared several times on HSN. “We’re very pleased with our sales progress. We are on track to be in 20,000 retail outlets by the end of 2007,” Buhay said. In Latin America, GE cameras are now in 1,000 retail outlets, with expectations that they will be in approximately 3,000-5,000 stores by the December holidays.

General Imaging
An independent company based in Torrance, Calif., General Imaging unveiled eight GE-branded cameras on March 8 in Las Vegas during PMA 07, the imaging industry’s leading trade show. Even at the entry level, the GE cameras include features one would expect from a much more expensive camera, starting with the A730’s 7 megapixels of resolution, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. Models at the higher end feature up to 12 megapixels, up to 12x zoom, and 3-inch screens. In the middle is the E850, which adds wide-angle capability to its long list of features.
