MUNICH – Zuken EAS has expanded its corporate business team to manage its growing business in Europe and North America.

The printed circuit board design software company promoted Steve Chidester (pictured, below) to head of international marketing, with oversight of all marketing activities for Zuken in Europe and North America. In a press release, the company called this a strategic role that will draw on Chidester’s 30-year experience in the electronic design industry to strengthen Zuken’s position as a leading vendor in the PCB systems and electrical design markets.


Since joining Zuken in June 2009, Chidester has overseen the launch of several Zuken products, including CR-8000, a multi-board PCB design suite.

Zuken also named Patrick Hackney senior technical marketing manager for electrical design solutions in Europe and North America, and Aurang Rona has been appointed to a new international corporate development management role which will focus on shaping and optimizing Zuken’s working processes and organizational structure.

CEO Zuken America and GM Zuken Europe Gerhard Lipski said, ”This offers us a great opportunity for growth in Europe and North America. It will enable us to be more effective in partnering with our customers to offer solutions that will benefit their business.”
