JPK Instruments extends European sales team with Neicke and Hartmann

June 4, 2011
Berlin, Germany--Nanoanalytic instrumentation company JPK Instruments has appointed Thomas Neicke and Elmar Hartmann as new members of the sales team.

Berlin, Germany--Nanoanalytic instrumentation company JPK Instruments appointed Thomas Neicke and Elmar Hartmann as new members of the sales team. Neicke will be responsible for managing JPK's sales activities in Eastern and Southern Europe, and Hartmann will be responsible for the South of Germany and Austria. JPK Instruments manufactures such nanoanalytic instruments as atomic force microscope (AFM) systems and optical tweezers for a broad range of applications reaching from soft-matter physics to nanooptics, and from surface chemistry to cell and molecular biology.

Hartmann received his PhD in Physics at the Technical University of Munich. After that, he worked for several years as a research associate at the TU of Munich focusing on Scanning Probe Microscopy. After spending more than a year in the Nanostructure Consortium of Lund University (Sweden) he received the postdoctoral lecture qualification of the Technical University of Munich. In 1999, Hartmann left academia to start a career in instrument sales. The companies he worked for include Digital Instruments, SOPRA, Atomic Force/Asylum Research, and Veeco Instruments/Bruker Nano GmbH. Periodically, Hartmann works as an associate lecturer at the Munich University of Applied Sciences in the master program of Micro- and Nanotechnology.

To further strengthen the distribution network in Europe, JPK welcomes Thomas Neicke. As sales manager, Neicke takes over responsibility for managing JPK’s distribution activities in Southern and Eastern Europe. Neicke has many years of experience in customer service, project management and sales having most recently worked for SPECS Surface Nano Analysis GmbH. Studying in Wildau, Germany and Linköping, Sweden, he gained his Engineer degree in Physics Technology from the University of Applied Sciences in Wildau.
