Elektra Awards Rising Star Matt Evans

The 6SigmaET team at Future Facilities are proud to announce that Matt Evans, our Senior Product Engineer, has been awarded the Rising Star Of The Year Award at this year’s Elektra Awards. Previously, the 6SigmaET team has also won the Design Tools and Development Software award at the Elektra awards.

Judged by an expert panel of industry leaders, the Rising Star of the Year award was selected from a shortlist of five of the industry’s most talented young engineers, all in their first five years in the industry. At the virtual award ceremony, the judges named Matt Evans as the Rising Star of the Year for 2020, commending him for his achievements to date.

At just 28 years old, Matt is the sole product engineer in our 6SigmaET team here at Future Facilities. In this role, he has helped us to define the market for intelligent thermal simulation in electronics and has contributed to global research that is helping to develop the sector. Day to day, Matt is a core part of a small team working to constantly evolve our thermal simulation platform to give thermal engineers the tools they need to design and simulate electronic devices for some of the world’s biggest electronics companies.

Matt was also recognized for his drive to impart knowledge through lectures, training programmes and first-line support to Future Facilities’ global distributor network. In doing so, he has empowered other engineers in product design with the understanding they need to make the most of product design and delivery.

Since joining the 6SigmaET team, Matt’s hard work has made a huge impact on the success of our 6SigmaET software. His expertise has not only helped our customers across the world innovate and speed up design processes, but has also contributed to driving collaboration and culture by leading a company-wide training and induction programme that helps to educate the next generation of thermal engineers.
