Corporate Application Engineer

Simon began his career as a design engineer, then moved to the role of Librarian for a large Mil-Aero company in the United Kingdom. That position gave him his first exposure to EDA. After several years, Simon made another change and took on the System Administration responsibilities for the EDA tools within the company. Simon brought his vast experience with EDA to Mentor Graphics in 2006. His background in library and system administration made him an excellent choice to support customers using Mentor’s DMS Library tool (now EDM Library). As EDM has expanded to include both Library and Design, Simon has continued to support customers in deploying EDM systems, training users on the use of EDM and day to day support of the EDM tool set.
