Future Electronics and President Robert Miller Recognize Longtime Employee Helmut Lippmann

Pointe Claire, Quebec - Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components with corporate headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, and the company's President, Robert Miller, are pleased to recognize Helmut Lippmann, for more than 40 years of service within the organization.

Mr. Lippmann started with Future Electronics in July of 1975, as General Manager of the company's Toronto office. Ambitiously working his way up the corporate ladder, he spent many of his early years at Future Electronics working closely with the company's Founder and President, Robert Miller, in developing and growing business relationships with suppliers.

By 1978, Robert Miller named Lippmann a Vice President (one of only two at the time), and after several years of traveling back and forth from Toronto, he moved to Montreal in 1983 to work full time at the company's worldwide headquarters. In the early 1980s and into the 1990s, Lippmann's main focus was the Supplier Services group, and for the past 20 years, he has additionally been heavily involved in Inventory Management and Control.

Lippmann remains as enthusiastic today as he was when he started more than 40 years ago, and says, "Future Electronics is a great company. If you do your thing, do what you are asked to do and do it well, you've got it made." He cites the fact that not one of the members of his Supplier Services group has fewer than 20 years of service with the company.

The Founder and President of Future Electronics, Robert Miller, often refers to employees as being "the company's greatest asset." The organization boasts many longtime employees, and milestone anniversaries are recognized with personalized cards, plaques, free meal vouchers, and other customized gifts based on seniority and length of tenure.
