Asylum research appoints ex-MEMS foundry exec

October 3, 2008: Asylum Research, a maker of atomic force and scanning probe microscopy (AFM/SPM) for materials and bioscience applications, has named small-tech veteran Monteith Heaton as EVP of marketing and business development for the company’s line of atomic force and scanning probe microscopes (AFM/SPM). Heaton joins Asylum with over 25 years of marketing, sales, business, and technical management experience, most recently as VP sales and marketing for MEMS foundry Innovative Micro Technology (IMT).

“Monte’s long experience in AFM and SPM and his breadth of leadership in business development, strategic marketing, sales and communications for high technology products will be a major asset to Asylum as we navigate this high-growth period for our company,” commented Jason Cleveland, Asylum’s CEO.

Added Heaton, “I’m excited to join Asylum Research, a stable and growing company in the nanotech field. Asylum’s people and products are widely recognized as the technological leaders in AFM/SPM. And, of course, Asylum’s focus on product and applications support is legendary in an industry where this is often not the case. I look forward to helping to grow Asylum to an even stronger market leadership position.”
