BluGlass appoints new CFO

BluGlass Ltd of Silverwater, Australia – which has developed proprietary low-temperature, low-hydrogen remote-plasma chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) technology for manufacturing devices such as laser diodes, next-generation LEDs and micro-LEDs for industrial, defence, display and scientific markets – has appointed Rob Ambrogio as chief financial officer to lead its finance functions through the next phase of the company’s growth and transformation. Ambrogio commences on a part-time basis and may increase to full-time in-line with revenue generation activity.

A Chartered Accountant, Ambrogio has more than two decades of experience leading finance teams in high-growth public, private and not-for-profit enterprises. Ambrogio has previously held CFO roles at ASX-listed investment company Gowing Bros Ltd, employment and training firm MTC Australia Ltd, and Australian marketing agency Creative Activation. During his time at Gowing, Ambrogio managed assets of more than $300m, and he was key to Creative Activation’s acquisition by Clemenger Group.

“Rob is an excellent addition to the BluGlass team, and will be instrumental as the business prepares for commercialization and profitability,” says BluGlass’ executive chair, James Walker. “Rob’s extensive experience in strategic and finance leadership, risk management, corporate governance and M&A considerably strengthens our executive leadership team and will be invaluable as we bring our Silicon Valley semiconductor fab fully online. His demonstrated track record in overseeing business transformation and delivering significant shareholder value complements Jim’s [BluGlass’ president Jim Haden’s] expertise and will be critical as we transition BluGlass to revenue generation,” he adds.
