Valentin Drogoreanu, PhD
Chief Technology Officer
As founder of Scanteq Dr. Valentin Drogoreanu has served as Chief Technology Officer from the beginning of this start-up in 2010.
After graduating in 1992 at the Politehnica University of Bucharest, Romania, Dr. Drogoreanu began its career working as researcher at the same institute in the domains of digital control and simulation of power electronic converters. Then he won a grant at Politecnico di Torino, Italy, where he did research in the field of Space Vector control with Digital Signal Processors for AC drives.
In this fruitful period of working in universities Dr. Drogoreanu had written, as co-author, more than twenty technical papers and two books and did research and teaching activities in the domains of industrial electronics, power electronics, software engineering and digital control with computers and microprocessors.
Later on he began to work for industry in Turin, in the area of hardware and software for automotive test benches. In 1998 he started to work as senior design engineer in the field of image acquisition systems for Panini SPA, the global market leader in distributed check capture. In this period he acquired deep understanding and mastering of the complex hardware, software and firmware technologies for image acquisition, which became its new vocation he embraced with enthusiasm.
In 2007 Dr. Drogoreanu co-founded Intelbanq, a research and development company focused on delivering items handling and imaging products to organizations processing paper transactions. In 2010 he founded a new venture, Scanteq, driven by the deep mastering of technologies and market understanding, with the aim to continue to design and produce image acquisition systems, but to extend the area of interest to new domains, involving digital printing, industrial automation and machine vision. Even if he has to manage the projects, Dr. Drogoreanu never stopped developing, this being a passion he cannot live without.
Dr. Drogoreanu owns a PhD in Electronics Engineering from Politehnica University of Bucharest with the distinction Summa Cum Laude and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino.
