Mentor appoints director for Western Europe

NEWBURY, England — Mentor Graphics has appointed Adrian Buckley as Area Director for its Western Europe region based in Newbury, Berkshire.

After graduating from Newcastle University with an honours degree in physics and electronics Buckley worked in the BAE Dynamics applied technology group investigating the suitability of micro processor architectures for military applications, then in development at the design automation group within Tektronix, and has held several senior technical support and sales roles in his fifteen years with Mentor Graphics.

Buckley said, “It's a great time to be taking on this role because there's such a vast amount of innovation going on across Europe and particularly in the UK. There are clusters of brilliant engineers and technically savvy management starting up all over the place and my feeling is that Mentor Graphics has the potential to be a kind of hub, a facilitator of alliances, IP exchanges and cross-fertilisation across the silicon valleys of Europe.”
