AnSem has announced the appointment of Stephen Ellwood as VP Engineering.  In this role, Stephen will be managing the execution of customer projects within AnSem.  His responsibilities will cover all engineering and project management related aspects as well as management of manufacturing third parties with respect to prototyping and supply chain management.
