Spotlight Interview with Marc Savoie, VP Sales & Marketing at SMD Sensors





Marc Savoie – VP Sales & Marketing at SMD Sensors

What do you hope attendees will gain at your webinar?

I hope attendees will better understand the options available to them for managing their fluid processes in terms of sensors.  In many cases, there are different technologies and sensor types to achieve the same desired fluid control.  The choice typically is a balance of economics, design space, electrical considerations like output type and power available, and accuracy desired.

What discussions do you look forward to having with the attendees?

At SMD, we pride ourselves in offering solutions.  Many times our standard products fit the application perfectly.  However, when they do not we rely on our technical team to closely collaborate with our customers and provide  customized designs.  Using our rapid design and prototype capabilities, I really look forward to learning about the challenges they face and providing the best sensor solution.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

The Medical Device and Pharmaceutical industries are changing so fast.  So many useful and life-saving advances are constantly being launched.  It is inspiring to part of these high energy and important markets.  I enjoy learning about our customer’s technology and I am excited to offer our sensors in the support their important work.

How did you get into the industry?

I worked for many years as a technical sales manager for a large distribution firm offering over 20 product lines to semiconductor and pharmaceutical industries.  The job was 90% technical consulting and 10% sales and helping customers find the best product solution to their application was so much fun.  SMD was looking for someone who could help expand their product lines with complimentary products and focus on Medical devices and Pharmaceutical applications and I am very happy to part of this energetic and talented team.

Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

I grew up in Rhode Island which is nicknamed the “Ocean State”.  There is a state park on the southern tip of Conimicut Island in Narragansett Bay that has a rock outcropping.  When you sit near the waves you cannot see any buildings, just quiet ocean, waves and seagulls.  When I am there, I feel I could be anywhere in the world and not have a better view.  Great place for fishing too!
