Applied Motion Products is proud to announce that Mr. Don Macleod has joined the company as President, reporting to the Board of Directors.

Don’s 30 years of experience with step motors began when he received a PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Leeds in 1982 and was immediately hired by our company for a period of four years.

After his initial tour with Applied Motion from 1982 to 1986, Don spent 22 years with Seagate Technology where he was promoted to Executive Director of Media Engineering, Mechanical Platforms and Motor Division. In 2009 Don left Seagate to become President of Aura Systems, a manufacturer of mobile power generators and electronics.

Besides his work experience, Don is the holder of 31 US patents, has authored 8 published papers and received Engineering and Technology Management certificates from Caltech.

Don has a very impressive history of success and hard work. Under his leadership Applied Motion will continue its dedication to our customers, suppliers, market channel partners, and associates. We know Don will be an outstanding addition to Applied Motion Products, and we look forward to a smooth and seamless transition as he takes the helm.

Thank you for your consideration and continued support, and welcome to Don.
