LED maker Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has appointed Mark Adams as chief executive officer. Most recently (from 2012 to 2016) Adams was president of Micron Technology Inc (a Fortune 200 global manufacturer of memory solutions).

"We will build upon Lumileds' robust innovation pipeline, technology leadership and strong customer base to drive Lumileds' future growth," says Adams.

Between 2008 and 2012, Adams was VP, worldwide sales at Micron. He also served in executive roles at Lexar Media Inc, Creative Labs Inc and NCR Corp.
