Altium sets the course for world wide sales growth
Altium has announced the appointment of Martin Harris, CEO for Europe, Middle Eastand Africa (EMEA) to the position of Head of Global Field Operations.
This move reflects the focus on further aggressive worldwide growth for Altium and the ongoing development of a cross regional sales culture, while the individual regions elevate their profile as regional business units.

Mr. Harris joined Altium in August 2009 as VP Sales & Support for EMEA and became regional CEO of EMEA in September 2010. With this recent move, all of Altium’s field offices now report back to Harris.

“With AltiumLive and the new release of Altium Designer, we have built the foundation for Altium to go the next step in providing tools to engineers which they need to develop and distribute products for the future.” said Martin Harris. “Once again Altium is trailblazing an entirely new concept into the electronic design community, and I am happy to lead the worldwide sales regions into this business, especially as I expect even more traction in the markets when we ramp up our extended R&D team in Shanghai.”

Both AltiumLive and the new version of Altium Designer were released beginning of March (separate announcement). AltiumLive is the new web platform and ecosystem for electronic designers, allowing everybody to interact with the community, giving feedback on the product and providing continuous product and content updates to users. AltiumLive can be seen as the back end of Altium Designer, which has a new data management system at its core to allow high integrity release processes and component/reuse management.
