Vector Photonics’ board gains executive chair
Vector Photonics Ltd (which was spun off from Scotland’s University of Glasgow in 2020, based on research led by professor Richard Hogg) says that Adrian Meldrum has joined its board of directors as executive chair, contributing to corporate strategy, planning and implementation.
Meldrum has a proven track record in the photonics industry in senior leadership, sales, marketing, new product introduction (NPI), and operations roles, in start-ups, private and public listed companies. The appointment comes as Vector Photonics moves into the next phase of commercializing its unique all-semiconductor photonic-crystal surface-emitting laser (PCSEL) technology.
“Adrian brings 25 years of industrial photonics, telecommunications, and semiconductor experience,” notes CEO Neil Martin. “He has been CEO, CCO, business development director, commercial director and general manager in high-revenue, high-growth and high-profit, multi-million-pound-turnover global companies, including Gooch & Housego, Oclaro Inc, IQE and Bookham Inc. He also brings invaluable, stakeholder and investor communications experience, including with the NASDAQ and AIM stock markets.”
Meldrum has a first-class BSc (Hons) degree in Physics and Mathematics from Manchester Metropolitan University.
