December 19, 2019: Battery testing firm Digatron Power Electronics has made two appointments in the past couple of months, with a new director of sales in Los Angeles, US and a general manager at its Qingdao, China facility.
Marcus Peng as director of sales will have primary responsibility for the US west coast with special emphasis on the automotive sector. He will also help CEO Kevin Campbell with the firm’s operations in Qingdao.
Peng has been involved in battery research, module and pack development and testing for more than 20 years, and has built up relationships within the lithium battery industry.
His focus for Digatron will be on the consumer electronics market and burgeoning technology sectors, including EV start-up companies, contact pack assemblers and cell R&D operations.
He Zhou has been made general manager of the Qingdao facility, having joined the company in August 2018 when he lived in Aachen, Germany.
“The management believes that He Zhou’s 12 years of study and work experience in Germany and his Chines background can perfectly co-ordinate the differences between eastern and western cultures to make the company operate more efficiently,” the company said.
“At the same time, He Zhou’s solid technical background and understanding of Digatron will enable the company to effectively assist Digatron to achieve more in the Chinese market.”
Separately, in October, Brian Stanhaus, who is based in Shelton, Connecticut in the US, was promoted to the position of senior sales engineer.
