Rotork appoints new Sales Manager for Network Systems
28/04/2008Rotork’s Pakscan and open network systems activity has been strengthened by the appointment of Chartered Engineer Shelley Pike as Systems Sales Manager. Shelley is now responsible for supporting and guiding Rotork customers on the best choice of network system for their valve actuation applications and sales support for the Rotork network product range. In addition, Shelley will be actively involved in the definition of Rotork’s future networks strategies
Shelley joined Rotork on a four year electronic engineering apprenticeship in 1988, following which she successfully achieved a first class honours degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Plymouth in 1995. After a year in Quality Control she joined the Electronics Department where she became a Senior Electronics Engineer. During this time Shelley’s main activities involved the development of Rotork’s network products, starting with Profibus in 1998.
When not busy with Rotork’s network management duties, Shelley relaxes in another management role – looking after a motorcycle endurance racing team. Using Shelley’s own 600cc Yamaha machine, her team won its class in the 2007 British Championships.
Shelley takes up her new duties at an exciting time for Rotork’s network products. Sales of Pakscan doubled in 2007 following the launch of the P3 master station whilst new developments, including wireless technologies, promise to further extend the options available to Rotork’s network customers in the future.
