New Sales Director for Connector Specialist Lane Electronics

Mick Varley

We are happy to announce the appointment of Mick Varley as Sales Director. He takes over from long-standing Sales Director Pat Jarman who remains in an advisory capacity until his retirement in early 2018. 

Prior to becoming Sales Director, Mick Varley was a member of Lane’s Business Development Management team with particular responsibility for the aerospace and defence market where he worked closely with key suppliers including Souriau and Weald Electronics.

Mick Varley has been involved in the interconnection industry for many years with a career that began at Marconi Communications, and also at GEC Basildon (now Leonardo) and TEC Electronic Components. Prior to joining Lane Electronics in 2013, he spent 14 years at Amphenol Ltd where he gained familiarity with key Amphenol connector types including 62GB / MIL-DTL-26482 and MIL-DTL-38999.

Commenting on the appointment, Lane’s Managing Director Simon Hammerton said “Lane operates across many market sectors from aerospace and defence to industrial, communications and motorsport. Mick Varley’s interconnection background and his knowledge of two of our key market sectors made him the stand-out candidate for the Sales Director post. Everyone at Lane Electronics is excited at the prospect of working with Mick Varley in his new role and I am particularly delighted that Pat Jarman has agreed to stay with us for a few months to help Mick’s transition to Sales Director.

As an interconnection specialist, Lane represents many of the industry’s leading connector manufacturers and is an ideal source for all key connector types including circular, RF, coaxial, IDC, PCB connectors, edge connectors and connectors for rack and panel applications.
