Reading time ( words)

Tamara Sites, a sales professional with strong ties to companies in the electronics manufacturing sector, has joined the I-Connect007 sales and marketing team, effective April 1. She most recently worked on growing the IPC CFX community, part of IPC’s Factory of the Future initiative. Tamara will now focus her attention on increasing partnerships between I-Connect007 and companies serving the printed circuit board industry supply chain, with a particular emphasis on developing new business.

“We are so excited to welcome Tamara to the I-Connect007 team! Her warmth, positive energy and industry knowledge will enhance our sales efforts,” says Barb Hockaday, I-Connect007 sales manager.

Tamara lives in the Midwest and calls herself a “curious seeker.” She has spent most of her career in sales, with opportunities ranging from newspaper sales to real estate.

Tamara joined IPC in 2020 at the urging of a friend. She worked as the CFX business development manager, assisting in adding 21 manufacturers to the IPC CFX qualified product listing portal.

With a keen understanding of the power of social media in marketing, Tamara is always looking for creative ways to promote her partnerships and customers.

“Roughly 85% of CEOs and purchasing managers have turned to social media to find products, view videos, etc.,” she says. “In today’s world, you have to look for different ways to move your company’s brand. Making those connections on social media opens doors and allows you to start forming relationships.”

Tamara looks forward to working with the I-Connect007 team, traveling, creating new opportunities and building long-term friendships. In her personal time, she enjoys reforesting the property she purchased at auction seven years ago. “I’m trying to bring it back to life,” she says. Tamara also enjoys traveling, cooking, and working with a local dog rescue.

Welcome, Tamara, to the I-Connect007 team!

Guru & Geezer: A Celebration of the Life of Martin Cotton

05/17/2023 | Philip Stoten
This last weekend, industry guru and dear friend to many, Martin Cotton passed away. He was one of the first people I worked with in the electronics industry when I joined Toptec Design to learn to layout PCBs. He was a bit of a rock star to many PCB designers, myself included. He was known to be among the best in his field, if not the best, and went on to be one of the most influential and innovative people in the industry over a long and distinguished career. He will be hugely missed by his family and by his numerous friends in and out of the electronics industry.
