Firecomms appoints VP of European sales

Firecomms Ltd of Cork, Ireland has appointed Hugh Hennessy as vice president of European sales. From his base in Ireland, Hennessy will also strengthen worldwide sales support.

Firecomms provides high-speed, low-power visible lasers and LEDs for optical data communications for small-area networks, such as in-car networks and home networks, as well as medical devices, barcode scanners, and optical storage devices.

Hennessy was most recently European sales manager for TDK Electronics Europe GmbH, where he led sales teams in delivering over $300m in European and global sales. Previously, he held various positions within TDK including global account manager for its American division, and general manager of the Eastern Europe regional office, which he established.

“With the rapid growth of photonics communications in the consumer electronics, cell phones and automotive industries, Hugh brings expertise that is critical to guiding Firecomms’ expansion within these markets,” says CEO Declan O’Mahoney.
