sp3 appoints director of sales

sp3 Diamond Technologies Inc of Santa Clara, CA, USA, a supplier of CVD diamond film products, equipment and services to markets including electronics, lasers, LEDs, semiconductors and MEMS, has recruited industry veteran William Peifer as its director of sales. He is tasked with increasing sales of its CVD diamond products for thermal management applications (such as DiaTherm and wafer-scale diamond) as well as supporting existing sales efforts for non-thermal related applications (including DiaTips, DiaPak, DiaBide and DiaDress). Peifer will also be responsible for accelerating the expansion of sp3’s sales organization, mainly through the addition of representative organizations across the USA.

Peifer has broad experience in moving various novel technologies to adoption in real-world applications, says president & COO Dwain Aidala. “He brings significant experience with thermal management applications at the device and systems levels, and a broad network of government and commercial customer contacts that he will be able to utilize to leverage sp3’s products into new applications in key markets, such as military, industrial and aerospace,” he adds.

Most recently, Peifer was with Yamaichi Electronics Inc USA, responsible for increasing sales of its Yflex LCP (liquid crystal polymer) material into the photovoltaic industry and worked on heat dissipation solutions. Previously, he handled business development for DVK Integrated Services Inc, with a particular focus on heat dissipation materials. Peifer has also worked for Covenant Electronics Inc and SMOS Systems Inc (an affiliate of Seiko Epson Corp, Japan).
