In his new position, Lader oversees and conducts the business development, sales and marketing efforts for the MAG division.

“My plan as new vice president of the MAG Programs is to build awareness regarding the many products RF Extreme has to offer for the government, aerospace and military markets,? says Lader. “I’m honored to be part of RF Systems’ mission to broaden its reach among MAG customers and in educating the market/the industry about the solutions our products can provide.?

“Nathan is a fine addition to The Vitec Group RF Systems team,? says Stephen Shpock, president of The Vitec Group RF Systems. “His 25 years of combined business and electronic communication experience will be an asset to The Vitec Group RF Systems division.

Advancing into sales of RF/microwave components and systems for M. Lader Co., Lader continued to pursue business development of customers involved in military and commercial communication systems, which led to sustained sales above $3M per year.

In 1998, Nathan transitioned into a new position as director of sales/general manager of M.
