National Instruments is promoting leaders in sales and R&D to continue to drive company growth and execute on short- and long-term strategies. NI promoted Francis Griffiths to the newly created position of Senior Vice President of Regional Sales and Marketing to continue to drive global sales alignment and growth. He will report to Eric Starkloff, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.
Due to the untimely passing of Phil Hester in September 2013, NI also promoted Scott Rust to Senior Vice President of Research and Development. Scott will be responsible for driving product execution, leading the team of R&D Vice Presidents and their worldwide organisations and working with the Chief Platform Officer, Duncan Hudson, to guide the evolution of the company’s product platforms and lead the R&D fellows.
Dr James Truchard, NI President, CEO and Cofounder, says: “Providing engineers and scientists with tools to accelerate innovation, productivity and discovery is NI’s primary goal, and these leadership changes support driving growth and innovation to support this goal. The contributions of these experienced NI leaders have been instrumental in helping propel innovation and drive company growth, and I look forward to their continued leadership.”
