Branman has held sales management positions at SonoSite since 2001, most recently as director of U.S. Sales, to which he was promoted from the position of regional business director for the Western region in 2006, the Bothell, Wash.-based company. He began his career as an ultrasound sales representative for Corometrics Medical Systems in 1991 and has worked for GE Medical Systems and ATL Ultrasound.
SonoSite said Branman will oversee a sales channel, consisting of six regions and more than 100 direct sales consultants and clinical specialists, in his new position.
