"Essential to Mike's selection was his demonstrated success in delivering strong growth from new, highly engineered products and expanded services which are key elements of our Test business strategy. Also important was Mike's experience in Asia, particularly with operations in China, one of our strongest growth markets. These attributes are well aligned with our opportunities in the Test business. I am very pleased to have both Mike and Rich on the senior management team at MTS. Together, their focus on developing new ways to leverage our existing technology while finding new technologies to accelerate our growth is important to our long-term success."
