Teledyne CARIS Announces Change in USA Management

FREDERICTON, Canada, Oct 4, 2016 – Teledyne CARIS announces change in USA management. After 10 years at the helm of Teledyne CARIS USA, Paul Cooper will be retiring on October 14, 2016.


Paul joined CARIS from Leidos (formerly SAIC) and prior to that, enjoyed an illustrious career with the US Naval Oceanographic Office working on many international projects in the fields of hydrography and oceanography. Paul will be keeping in close communication following his retirement and will remain active in the industry.

Following Paul’s retirement, Karen Hart has graciously accepted to take on the responsibility of director of the Teledyne CARIS’ USA operations and will be spearheading the team to further develop the US market. Karen holds an MSc in Oceanography and has 16 years of experience in hydrography and oceanography, 9 of which have been with CARIS.

Also involved in this re-organization is Tami Beduhn. Tami holds a MESc in Ocean Mapping and previously worked for NOAA prior to joining CARIS in 2014, making her a great fit for the position of NOAA’s Account Manager formerly held by Karen.

We wish Paul, Karen and Tami the best of luck in their future endeavors.
