Arlon is increasing the company’s focus in their primary markets of Aerospace, Industrial and Military (AIM). When EMC acquired Arlon from CriticalPoint Capital, EMC’s top-level management made it clear that Arlon was to take the lead for the company in promoting products (EMC and Arlon) into Arlon’s AIM markets. To lead in these efforts globally, Arlon has hired Mark Carlson in the newly created position of OEM Global Marketing Manager. Carlson will be promoting Arlon and EMC materials into the AIM market.
Mark brings to Arlon over 30 years of electronics industry experience. Coincidentally, Mark began his career with Arlon in the microwave materials division from 1983-1998. After which, Mark was with Isola in sales focused on high-speed materials from 1998-2003. Mark then joined Nelco in 2003, beginning a 10-year run with Neltec, Inc. and Park Electrochemical, where he focused on high frequency materials and OEM sales into the avionics sector. In 2014, Mark joined Anaren Microwave-Unicircuit, where he was the Director of Business Development.
Mark is returning to the electronics industry after a brief hiatus 2017-2020 and Arlon is excited to have him on their team. In his new role as the OEM Global Marketing Manager, Mark will be reporting to Arlon’s President, Brad Foster, who stated, “Arlon is fortunate to have Mark join us…again. Mark has a wealth of knowledge gained through his experience in building his career in sales and marketing within the electronics industry. Our new owners, EMC, have made it clear that skilled, top-level talent is required to build a top-performing team. Mark certainly meets these criteria, and we are thrilled to have him join the Arlon/EMC team.”
