CSconnected appoints development manager

CSconnected (which was formed in 2017) has appointed Phillip Cornish as its new development manager to deliver the strategic development and business development activities that underpin the expansion of the compound semiconductor cluster across the South Wales region. In this new role, he will identify global market opportunities for the cluster’s research, development and innovation activities as well as helping to develop start-ups and investment to enhance the regional cluster.

Cornish brings compound semiconductor industry experience to the position, most recently as director & co-founder of Stratium Ltd, a venture capital-backed university spin-off manufacturing quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) for precision gas analysis applications. His previous positions include management consultancy and business development for optical communications and laser solutions provider Oclaro Inc (now part of Lumentum Inc), all of which included responsibility for strategic management and business and product development.

“His expertise and drive will be invaluable for CSconnected,” believes CSconnected’s director Chris Meadows. “This appointment reflects our commitment to develop a global advantage in a sovereign, key enabling technology which will allow Wales and the UK to increase trade globally in critical sectors such as 5G communications, autonomous and electric vehicles, advanced medical devices, and consumer electronics of the future.”
