Doug Steele embraces new role
Harwin has named Doug Steele as Global VP of Catalog Distribution. Steele, who was previously Harwin's North America Distribution Director, will be tasked with developing a consistent worldwide product pricing and product introduction structure.
Currently, Harwin has worldwide franchise deals in place with Mouser, Newark and Farnell. Explains CEO Andrew McQuilken: “Catalog distributors are especially important in our network as they enable designers to access new products easily and in low volumes for prototyping and short production runs. In his new role Doug will be responsible for ensuring that engineers who use the world's leading catalog distributors are aware of our hi-rel connector product range.”
Adds Steele: “One of our key catalog distribution products - targeted at designers looking for a high performance connector system that performs well under harsh environmental conditions yet is priced in line with commercial products - is our Datamate 2mm pitch cable-to-cable, cable-to-board and board-to-board connector system.”
