Before his promotion to vice president of eBusiness and Marketing Operations, Pasquarette served as the vice president of software product marketing where he was responsible for the success and adoption of the company’s application software platform, including customer education, user certification, and subscription and service programs. Prior to this role, he was the director of software product marketing where he was responsible for leading the evolution of the company’s flagship product, NI LabVIEW software, from a virtual instrumentation tool into new application areas and industries, including embedded design and development, math and signal processing, and advanced control.

From 2003 to 2005, Pasquarette worked in the R&D department, helping lead product strategy for the LabVIEW software platform, including the development of LabVIEW SignalExpress, an interactive environment for benchtop instrument control and data logging. From 1999 to 2003, he led the development and business strategy behind ni.com, the company’s award-winning website. During this period of tremendous growth and investment, Pasquarette led the introduction of e-commerce capabilities, user profile registration, the NI Developer Zone technical community site, and the company’s heavily trafficked support forum technology.
Pasquarette joined NI as an applications engineer after graduating Cum Laude from Texas A&M University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering.
