Karen Pearman speaks to Mark Laing from Siemens to discuss Supply chain challenges during New Product Introduction
Mark graduated with a B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Loughborough University, in the UK. He has over 25 years’ experience in PCB manufacturing with particular strengths in test and inspection methodologies with three test companies, namely Marconi Instruments in the UK, followed by GenRad and Teradyne in the US.
He then moved more in to software solutions for Router Solutions Incorporated, who were acquired by Mentor Graphics Corporation in 2006. When Mentor acquired Valor Computerized Systems in 2010 he moved in that division where he has been working as both a Product Marketing Manager and Business Development Manager. Mark has been granted three patents, one in the UK and two in the US, and has recently filed one more.
With the recent acquisition of Mentor by Siemens PLM, Mark is looking forward to further his career with Siemens.
Mark has lived in the US for over 20 years and now resides in Erie, Colorado, with his wife and two sons.
