Fast Forward Video Appoints New President and CEO

Fast Forward Video, a digital video recorder provider headquartered in Irvine, Calif., has appointed Hal J. Reisiger its new president and CEO.

Reisiger comes to Fast Forward Video from Enhanced Vision Systems, where he served as president for four years. Under his leadership, Enhanced Vision Systems' annual revenues more than tripled while winning accolades for innovative new digital optical magnification systems for the legally blind and visually impaired. From 1999 to 2002, Reisiger was president of Burkert Contromatic, a U.S. subsidiary of Germany's Burkert GmbH & Co.

Reisiger began his career as an application engineer at Haskel International, a manufacturer of pumps, valves, and gas compressors. He went on to serve in several sales management positions at the company before being appointed vice president of operations.

"Hal's experience in taking companies to the next level in terms of manufacturing efficiency, global reach, and innovation is second to none and qualifies him superbly to take the helm as Fast Forward moves into a new and exciting stage of growth," said Paul De Keyser, founder of Fast Forward Video.

Reisiger will be based at Fast Forward's Irvine headquarters.
