Martin Cotton’s career spans over 51 years with 45 spent in the Printed Circuit Board Industry. After much consideration and careful planning, Martin announced his retirement at the end of September 2018 and will be gradually working his way out of the company by the end of the year.
Martin joined Ventec International Group in 2013 as Global Director OEM Technology Marketing and, together with his team of global account managers, set out to raise Ventec’s brand and product awareness amongst blue ribbon “tech” companies around the world. In 2017 Martin accepted the position of Director OEM Projects which was created to focus on customer specific projects.
Martin will be retiring from full-time employment to concentrate on commercializing his many patents.
Martin said on his announcement: “Ventec was always going to be the last great adventure for me in the PCB world, and it has proven so. Working in materials for these past 5 years has been an excellent experience, and I wish I had found it earlier in my career, or at least I wish that Mr Mark Goodwin had found me earlier!”
Mark Goodwin, COO Europe & Americas commented: “I would like to thank Martin, my colleague and friend, for his contribution to the company. He will be missed by the entire Ventec team and we all wish him the very best and a very happy retirement.”
