GaN Systems expands to new US office

GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, which is a fabless provider of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications, has opened a new office in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and appointed Julian Styles as director of business development, leading business development in the USA.

The firm reckons that the expansion in the USA will help it to impact key industries, such as manufacturing and automotive, where the need for clean technology power conversion applications continues to grow.

GaN Systems will be able to better serve its clients in the USA with the addition of an “experienced, well versed executive in the electronic and automotive sectors,” reckons CEO Girvan Patterson. “We have worked hard to develop viable, effective GaN applications, including making hybrid and all-electric vehicles cost effective,” he adds. “Julian’s broad experience and strong technical background, including electric vehicle and grid systems, will complement the existing team to meet the needs of a growing company.”

An experienced executive with over 20 years’ track record of helping international companies bring new technologies to market, Styles most recently led US/Swedish company Movimento Group’s entry into knowledge management for advanced automotive infotainment systems. Previously he helped lead electronics company Pi Shurlok (now Pi Innovo) to rapid growth in the USA, based around innovative products for the automotive, transport and aviation industries.
