FLIR Systems Inc. recently announced that William A. Sundermeier, president of the Wilsonville-based company’s government systems division, has resigned to pursue other personal and business opportunities.

Thomas A. Surran, most recently president of the commercial systems division, has been appointed chief operating officer and will also assume responsibility for FLIR’s global commercial and government operations. FLIR said that Sundermeier has agreed to assist with the transition through the end of February.

“I want to thank Bill for his tremendous contributions to FLIR,” FLIR CEO Andy Teich said in a company press release. “He has been an instrumental part of FLIR’s growth and evolution over the past 19 years, from his early days in product management through his leadership of our government systems business for the past eight years. We will miss his deep experience and perspective.”

Surran first joined FLIR when the company purchased Indigo Systems in 2004. He went on to serve as general manager of the FLIR’s commercial vision systems business until leaving in 2007. He rejoined the company in 2009 and has since held several roles including vice president and general manager of Raymarine, a FLIR company, as well as president of the commercial systems division.

“Tom is a veteran executive and leader with demonstrated experience in all aspects of operations,” Teich said. “He has successfully led three FLIR operations over the past 10 years, and I am confident in his ability to continue that success in this expanded role.”
