Insulectro, the largest distributor of materials for use in manufacture of printed circuit boards and printed electronics, has hired Doug Gotelli as Technical Account Manager in its San Jose Branch.

“Today, I’m welcoming Doug Gotelli to the Puma Team,” announced Ken Parent, Insulectro Chief Operating Officer, “Doug has had a very impressive career with many high-profile positions throughout the supply chain.”

Gotelli has an extensive background in PCB fab/assembly/integration/supply sales and account management with such firms as Compass Electronics Solutions, MacDermid Alpha, Minco Products, Endicott Interconnect, and Tyco.

"I’ve known Insulectro since my start in the PCB business. The first ‘business lunch’ of my career was with Tom Earle and Anne Garibaldi when I worked in procurement/purchasing at a small PCB factory back in 1979! From that day on, I’ve had such respect and admiration for Insulectro. To have the opportunity of joining Insulectro at this juncture in my career is both extraordinary and humbling," Gotelli commented.

Gotelli will report to Chris Hunrath, Insulectro VP of Technology. Hunrath’s responsibilities have recently increased with the sales leadership role for Northern and Southern California being added. In addition to his Technology title, Hunrath is now also Vice President of Sales – Western Region.

Ken Parent concluded, “Doug's enviable track record is pinned to his driving goal of long-term customer engagement. We’re glad he’s now carrying an Insulectro business card.”

I know I’m not alone in this behavior: Car advertisements during television commercial breaks are as good as invisible to me, until I’m thinking about getting a new car. Only then do I notice them. Rather, I see each one with all my attention and being. If that extends into our industry, then everybody must be itching to pick up some new equipment. This week’s must-reads includes a smattering of new product announcements, along with the news of the IPC European subsidiary.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
