PARIS – Altium Ltd. announced it has strengthened business activities across the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Altium said it has appointed Martin Harris, former VP Sales & Support EMEA at Altium Europe, to regional CEO for EMEA. In this role, Harris will continue to manage Altium’s business in the EMEA region, and will lead strategic negotiations at CEO levels with customers and new prospects throughout Europe.
Martin Harris said, “We've seen an increase in the number of Altium Designer seat counts, and in the past financial year (ending June 30th) more than 1,100 new companies in EMEA migrated to Altium Designer. We aim to maintain this momentum."
Harris continued: “As Europe’s economies continue their respective recoveries from the economic downtown, the overriding theme we’re hearing from many companies is the desire to make a difference in the products they design, in how they design them, and in extending their reach with their customers in new ways. And we’re hearing this at senior management levels and from individual designers. Our job is to help make this a reality for as many organizations as we can.”
In parallel, the Sydney-based company has named Frank Krämer to the position of Technical Marketing Director for EMEA. Krämer has been working for Altium since 2002, most recently in the position of Manager Application & Support EMEA.
