SunTech Medical announces the promotion of Tony Francisco to Senior Marketing Manager for International Markets. This promotion and Mr. Francisco's relocation to the United Kingdom are due to the increasing demand for SunTech products in the European Middle East, and Asian markets.

SunTech Medical, based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina has offices in Oxfordshire, England and most recently, Hong Kong. "Our international business is growing rapidly and our efforts to support this growth are important to our success," states Ed Wright, VP of Marketing. "Through Tony's efforts, we look forward to developing a more global approach to our marketing plans, improving our product specifications to account for regional differences, and enabling an appropriate increase in promotional activities."

Tony Francisco, former product manager for automated blood pressure monitoring for exercise stress testing, sees this as "an opportunity to further the SunTech brand on a global level by keeping a pulse on the international marketplace. In the coming months I am focusing a great deal of my time on establishing a more involved relationship with some of our international customers."

Tony Francisco holds degrees in biomedical and mechanical engineering and materials science from Duke University. He has worked on Ambulatory Blood Pressure and Automated Monitors for BP measurement during stress testing since 2002. His academic research experience at Duke University Medical Center helps to bridge the gap between SunTech's strong engineering resources and the clinical needs for automated BP in all areas of medicine.
