Our Management Team

Our management team has over 130 years of combined optical manufacturing experience
with each member bringing unique strengths and capabilities to our company.

Dennis Hotchkiss

- President & CEO

Dennis Hotchkiss began his optics career in 1966 working at several small and large optical manufacturing shops.  Over the years, he successfully developed and refined many polishing processes capable of producing optical surfaces with finishes of less than 1 rms.  Finding his niche in the polishing world, he ventured out in 1974 and co-founded what would become a highly successful, world class, optical manufacturing company.  His company was sold back in 2000 and now, with over 40+ years in the industry, his skills are once again being utilized here at Coastline Optics.

Gene Lapp
- Vice President & GM

Beginning his optical career back in 1981, Gene spent several years engineering, designing, and refining manufacturing processes.  A combination of these skills along with his focused 'attention to detail' and keen business sense quickly advanced him into the position of Quality Systems Manager. Utilizing his knowledge of the manufacturing processes, Gene was highly successful in developing and implementing several company wide quality systems.  Now, with over 25 years experience, Gene is well positioned to help lead Coastline Optics into the future.

John Tardif
- VP, Business Development

John brings nearly 30 years of optical manufacturing experience to Coastline Optics.  After several years of working through the many facets of optical manufacturing, John's exceptional ability to see the 'big picture' eventually led him to serve as Production Manager for a large, world class, optical manufacturing company.  His 20+ years leading production insures that Coastline Optics remains focused, on-track, and well positioned for the future.

Mark Lapp
- VP, Thin Film Operations

Mark began his career in optics at the ripe old age of 17.  What started as a part time summer job, soon became a life long career.  After moving through the maze of optical manufacturing, he quickly found his niche in optical coatings and coating design.  Since the early days of Ion-Beam Sputtering, Mark's natural talent and intuition has kept him at the forefront of the Optical Thin Film industry.  There's no question that Mark's vast experience and knowledge will help insure Coastline Optics remains at the front of the pack.

Dave Beaumont

- Manager, Production Engineering

When it comes to mechanical engineering and design, Dave is considered by some to be the 'jack of all trades, master of all'.  Almost his entire career has been devoted to machine engineering and development.  Whether tooling up for a production run or designing machine from scratch, Dave's extensive 30 year experience gives Coastline Optics the unique strength and capability to respond quickly to manufacturing needs.
