Knowles Capacitors has made a number of changes within their sales and product management teams. Changes were brought into effect in October 2015 to continue a program of internal restructuring designed to fully leverage skill sets and put Knowles in the best position to service customers and grow revenue in 2016.

Simon Mao, previously Asia Marketing Manager, is now in the position of Product Manager of MLCs. By staffing the position in China, Simon will be best positioned to work closely alongside the Suzhou factory operations team where Knowles commercial MLC products are made. It will also enable him to work closely with the Asian market where the company sees significant growth opportunities for commodity product lines. Simon brings an in-depth understanding of products, applications and markets to the position, and his past experience in sales, marketing, research and analysis will allow him to bring a fresh perspective to this key role.

Chris Noade, previously Product Manager of MLCs, has accepted the position of European Sales Manager with responsibility for the full product portfolio. In this role Chris will focus on key account development and relationship management. Having been with the company for nearly 20 years - in a range of sales and marketing roles - his great understanding of the products and customers will help to further develop the company’s sales presence.
