Chroma Technology’s President, Paul Millman, was featured in a recent VT Digger Business & Economy interview:

Vermont economic development officials hold up Chroma as one of the state’s leading success stories. Founded in 1991 by co-workers who left their jobs at Omega Optical to start a competing business, Chroma now employs 140 people and has offices in Europe and Asia.

Paul Millman, Chroma’s co-founder and now its president, recently talked with VTDigger reporter Anne Wallace Allen about Chroma and where it is headed.
