Natalie Nichol joins as marketing manager at the Peterlee firm in a move that will see her working alongside the senior management team to develop a new marketing and communications strategy.

She will also oversee a dedicated marketing team alongside planning new product launches and integrated communications for the company’s sector leading range of electronic test and measurement instruments used in a wide variety of electrical, medical, industrial and energy sector applications.

Bringing more than 17 years’ experience and expertise in business-to-business and consumer marketing to the role, a key task will be to develop Seaward’s position in the USA, where the company sees significant growth opportunities for its medical device and solar PV test equipment.
