II-VI promotes Marlow’s general manager to lead Advanced Products Group, including Wide Band Gap Inc

II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA has named Kevin MacGibbon as general manager of Marlow Industries Inc of Dallas, TX, leading its global operations (including research, finance, sales/marketing, manufacturing, European and Asian operations, serving the defense, space, photonics, telecoms, medical, automotive, power generation, consumer and industrial markets).

Marlow’s prior general manager Barry Nickerson, who served as its president for the past 14 years and oversaw global operations, has been promoted to general manager of II-VI Inc’s Advanced Products Group, which includes not only Marlow Industries but also Wide Band Gap Inc. The latter manufactures single-crystal silicon carbide (SiC) substrates as well as other wide-bandgap materials. Nickerson reports to II-VI’s executive VP Chuck Mattera.

“This organizational leadership change should allow both Marlow and WBG to sustain their profitable growth performance, product and technology leadership, operational excellence, and further leverage the talent of its people worldwide,” says Mattera. “This change is consistent with the corporation's Leadership Development Initiative, and a great opportunity for WBG to learn from Marlow's experiences while reducing overall operating costs by leveraging Marlow’s existing investments to grow the business,” he adds.
