Tektronix hires outsider to be new president
Marc Tremblay has been named as the new president of Tektronix. Tremblay succeeds Pat Byrne who has served as Tektronix’ president since July 2014. Byrne will continue in his senior vice president role at parent company Fortive with Tremblay reporting directly to him.
“Marc has a proven track record of developing highly effective organizations leading to sustained growth,” said Byrne. “Marc will build on our growth and continue to advance the company’s vision to break down the barriers between inspiration and realisation of world-changing technologies.”
Tremblay joins Tektronix from Thermo Fisher Scientific where he was president of the Chemical Analysis Division. He previously held president, senior vice president and general manager positions at technology companies including DigitalGlobe, Z Corporation and Syncline.
He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School as well as M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from Stanford University, where he focused on smart product design and robotics.
