(OTCQB: RXSF), a healthcare technology company and developer of autonomous fingerprint healthcare security products, today announced the expansion of the Company’s executive team with the appointment of William V. Koch as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer and Faruk Okcetin as Vice President of Professional Sales.
William V. Koch has a long history of developing sales and marketing programs for Pitney Bowes and The Tweddle Group, where he was directly credited for sales growth exceeding $135M annually.
