Modulight chairman relinquishes COO and marketing roles

Laser diode manufacturer Modulight of Tampere, Finland has announced the re-election of co-founder Seppo Orsila as chairman of the board and his withdrawal from his operational role as chief operational officer and vice
president of marketing. As re-elected chairman, he continues to contribute to the strategic planning of the company.

"My decision stems from personal career aspirations and opportunity to experience different type of responsibility, business and organization to further develop myself," said Orsila. "I also hope that the change will provide more room for our new emerging talent to rise and blossom as they
take increasing amount of responsibility in the current climate of high growth and the constantly diversifying product range of Modulight," he adds.

Modulight provides lasers for optical applications in industrial, communication, medical, space and defense industries. Products include laser diodes from visible to infrared wavelengths with output power levels from
milliwats to over 100 watts.
