He may be a new face in the Motion Analysis family, but Steve Soltis is certainly not new to the world of motion capture. Our latest US Sales Manager has spent over 20 years working in the industry, and shares a common passion with our company: a love for the customers.
“It’s always really exciting, and such a learning experience, to work with customers who are experts in their field. One of the things I am really looking forward to in my new position at Motion Analysis is getting to help our customers advance the research and applications they are wanting to pursue by matching them with the most accurate and economical mocap solutions. Every day and every customer brings a unique set of circumstances and challenges to the table. I enjoy using the years of experience I have in motion capture to help tackle these challenges, while still being inspired by the exciting work the customers are doing in the process.”
But the customers are not the only thing that drew Steve into this industry, or into the Motion Analysis world.
“Motion Analysis is a leader in the industry. I previously worked as a distributor for them so I have been able to experience their knowledge and professionalism firsthand, and let me tell you, it’s impressive. I consider myself very fortunate to work in such a respected company. A big part of why I love working in this industry so much is the opportunity we get to help verify and prove what is otherwise only speculated or theorized. The world of motion capture is constantly changing and improving, and I get to work at the forefront of proving to customers what our solutions can do.”
As is probably obvious, Steve is a problem-solver. He doesn’t just want to sell systems, but wants to present our customers with solutions. This is very in line with the values of Motion Analysis as a company – that we offer our customers more than just a product – and is why it’s so important for us to hire those who share our same values. So, what is Steve’s measure of success in his work?
“I don’t see success as a finish line, but rather as a goal post that is constantly moving. I believe that in order to be successful you also need to keep moving towards that goal post. The moment you stop moving forward is the moment you stop being successful. With an eye on the past, strive to think outside the box to pioneer new applications and solutions to further technology and research.”
