ISO 9001:2015 is the highest quality standard available for company processes. It impacts the entire business and it requires all staff to take responsibility for their individual part in the process,” notes Kane. “My role includes developing our existing business systems and processes through Continuous Improvement, which I will extend to our key subcontractors. I will also maintain the management, production and test processes necessary for improved communication and control, both within and outside the company. It is a complex and competitive market with an integrated supply chain, so I must also take responsibility for business risk management,” he adds.

Kane has over 20 years of semiconductor experience in quality, engineering, management and commercial roles. His quality management experience includes supplier, product and customer quality process implementation to exacting AS9100 and TS16949 standards. He is also ISO9001:2015 Lead Auditor qualified and has led cross-functional teams for continuous improvement, process qualification, new product introduction (NPI) and production transfer projects in tier-1, semiconductor and electronics manufacturing companies.

Kane has held senior quality, engineering and account management positions in Spirit Aerosystems, Jabil, Sumco Europe Sales, MEMC UK, EKC Technology and Motorola. He also has an Applied Physics with Semiconductor Electronics degree.
