    caught my attention and introduced himself

    A Hewlett-Packard Company representative who had attended a talk I gave on computation caught my attention and introduced himself.
    (Inside Your Calculator; Gerald R. Rising)

    Would you be so kind as to tell me whether I have understood it correctly that here it means 'made me notice him'?

    Thanks.

    Probably.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
