QVI Announces Keith E. Polidor as President and Chief Executive Officer

Quality Vision International Inc (QVI®), a world-leading manufacturer of precision metrology systems, has announced that Keith E. Polidor has been named as President and Chief Executive Officer effective June 9th, 2023.

Keith has had 23 years of experience with QVI, most recently as Chief Operating Officer (COO) since 2016 and as QVI’s Corporate Secretary since 2007. Prior to his role as COO, he led strategic and operational functions in Manufacturing, Quality, Information Systems, and Marketing. His educational credentials include an MBA degree from Rochester Institute of Technology and a BA degree from Colgate University. He will be the 3rd generation President of the company.

Keith is stepping into the roles being vacated by Edward “Tarry” Polidor. Tarry’s career with QVI has spanned six decades. He was the 2nd generation company President for 46 years, assuming the role from his father and company founder in 1977. During Tarry’s tenure, the concept of video metrology was invented and introduced to the world, enabling manufacturers to measure their parts optically in new and revolutionary ways, which drove company growth. Under Tarry’s leadership, QVI is well positioned for the leadership transition being announced today. He will remain with the company, transitioning into the role of President Emeritus.

Tarry commented on the change, saying, “Over the company’s 78-year history, technology introduced and offered by QVI has transformed the industry. Under Keith’s leadership, the tradition of innovation in dimensional metrology will continue.”
