William Yang

VP of Global Sales

Most of my career has been in high-tech product sales and sales organization management, and I started by working in the field of electronic test and measurement. I enjoy engaging with users about what they’re doing to characterize electronic materials and devices and helping them understand how our advanced technologies can aid them in their work.
