Emcore’s board gains former JDSU CFO Jackson

Emcore Corp of Alhambra, CA, USA (which provides indium phosphide (InP)-based optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for broadband and specialty fiber-optics markets, has announced the election of Rex S. Jackson to its board of directors.

Jackson has extensive senior management and executive experience in both the corporate finance and legal functions, having served as chief financial officer and general counsel for several public and private companies. Most recently he held key positions at JDS Uniphase Corp (a provider of optical products for telecoms, cable networks, enterprise and data centers), including executive VP & CFO for the past three years through the separation of JDSU into two separate public companies.

Prior to JDSU, Jackson was executive VP & CFO at Symyx Technologies from 2007 to 2010, where he managed the finance, legal, IT and other corporate functions and led the firm’s acquisition of MDL Information Systems and subsequent merger with Accelrys. He also previously served as senior VP & acting CFO at Synopsys and held executive positions with Avago, AdForce and Read-Rite. Currently, Jackson serves on the board of directors of Energous (a provider of wire-free portable electronic device charging systems).

Jackson has a B.A. degree in Political Science from Duke University and earned his J.D. from Stanford University Law School.

“Jackson’s accounting and financial expertise, general business acumen and significant executive leadership experience will position him well to make valuable contributions to Emcore and our board of directors,” believes chairman Dr Gerald Fine.

Steven Becker has resigned from the board. “On behalf of Emcore and its shareholders, I would like to thank Steve for his service to the company,” comments president & CEO Jeffrey Rittichier.
