Assuming Doug’s role here at Heraeus Sensor Technology will be Viren Pathare, a Heraeus executive who previously held senior level positions at Heraeus Metal Management in the Phoenix areaWhile Viren and his family will miss the breathtaking scenery and year-round warm climate of “the Valley of the Sun,” the return to the Philadelphia region is a homecoming for him. Prior to joining Heraeus in 2007, he held several senior-level positions at a subsidiary of Lucent Technologies in nearby Allentown, PA.
While Pathare is a scientist at heart, with advanced degrees in materials science and metallurgical engineering, he also possesses a strong background in business, operations and customer development, skills he says that are invaluable for helping customers. Pathare said, “Our definition of success is simple: to help the businesses of our customers run better. What has really impressed me the past few months is everyone’s commitment to providing legendary support and service to our customers. That will never change!”
