LONDON National Instruments UK & Ireland has promoted Peter Horn to Field Sales Engineer for the East Anglia region.
In his new role, Horn (left), who lives in Cambridge, will be the first point of contact for customers in East Anglia with responsibility for specifying systems and introducing National Instruments innovative hardware and software.
Horn began his career at National Instruments as an Applications Engineer in 2003 after graduating with an Honours Degree in Electronics with Broadcast Engineering from Brighton University. He was enrolled into the Engineering Leadership Program (ELP), the premier training program for individuals interested in career development at National Instruments. While in this program, new hires develop product knowledge as well as leadership skills, which prepare them for successful careers. National Instruments ‘promote from within’ policy coupled with its rapid growth demands a steady flow of qualified engineers to fill positions in Marketing and Technical Sales.
Throughout two years of intensive training on products and applications, ELP Engineers – the interface between National Instruments and its customers – deliver creative and timely solutions to customers' technical issues. They work extensively with every department in the company, primarily assisting Sales and Marketing – but also feeding information back to Product Design and Manufacturing.
