Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group Co., Ltd., a world leader in the production of polyimide and high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs and specialist provider of thermal management and IMS solutions, has appointed Lynn Kahler (East US) and Ken Butte (West US) as OEM marketing managers. As part of the US-Sales team as well as the Global OEM Team, their focus lies on markets requiring high-speed/low-loss solutions and applications where signal integrity is essential.

With over 35 years of technical experience in the electronics manufacturing industry, including roles at Schlumberger Well Services, Compaq Computer, and NCR with design and program management experience and engineering roles at Merix Corporation, Perfect Circuit International and most recently Sanmina, Lynn Kahler brings with him extensive knowledge of the PCB industry, along with an impressive network of leading contacts that he has nurtured through years of experience in the industry. Based in Texas, Lynn takes on responsibility for customers in the Eastern region of the USA.

Ken Butte further strengthens Ventec’s presence as a world-class provider of high-performance copper clad laminates and prepregs with his deep understanding the PCB industry gained from his impressive career that spans more than 35 years working for companies such as Northrop Grumman NSD, Arlon/Rogers Corp and EMC Materials. His extensive experience and proven account management skills enable Ken to confidently offer Ventec’s Western US OEM customers the right advice for the selection and specification of materials that ensure optimum product performance and cost-effectiveness without compromising manufacturability or functionality.

"We are delighted that Lynn and Ken have joined our Global OEM Group and US-Sales team. They both know the PCB industry inside and out, understand PCB materials and know the requirements of OEM customers. I am very pleased to welcome them to Ventec," said Jack Pattie, president of Ventec USA.
