CST Global has appointed Kyle Kennedy as Staff Engineer, in the Sales and Marketing department. Kyle reports to Euan Livingston, VP Sales and Marketing, and joins Karen Rodger, Sales & Marketing Support, and Nick Bowden, PR and Digital Marketing.
Euan Livingston said, “Kyle started at CST Global three years ago as a Process Engineering Technician. This promotion takes him out of the production department and into frontline, technical sales.
“Kyle has first-hand experience of process design and manufacture of complex VCSEL, FP and DFB, semiconductor lasers, from quality testing, through to dry and wet etching, oxidation, thinning and polishing processes. Such a high level of production knowledge is proving invaluable when liaising with customers and partner companies. It not only helps us understand customers’ needs more accurately, but also allows constructive input on design at the start of projects, positively affecting cost, production time and yield.”
Kyle added, “I am the prime point of contact for the sales and marketing aspects of the New Product Introduction (NPI) process. My responsibilities include developing technical specifications for new products, competitive analysis, resolution of NPI tactical issues, technical literature management, volume pricing, stock recommendations and regular communication with customers and staff. I will also provide additional technical and commercial backup to Euan and Karen.”
Kyle has a joint honours degree in Electronics with Music, from the University of Glasgow. When he is not at work, Kyle can be found at the gym or playing football, golf, badminton and squash. He is an avid guitarist, attending gigs and festivals. To relax, Kyle likes a good book or watching his beloved Liverpool FC with friends.
All staff at CST Global wish Kyle well in his new and challenging role. Kyle is relishing the world-wide travel that the new role brings.
CST Global is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sivers IMA Holdings AB.
