Nextreme adds high-power packaging expert as VP of marketing & business development

Nextreme of Research Triangle Park, NC, USA, which manufactures thin-film thermoelectric components for thermal management and power generation, has appointed Dr Paul A. Magill as VP of marketing and business development.

Magill has more than 20 years of experience in the electronics and optoelectronics industry with expertise in sensors and laser diode applications as well as electronics and MEMS packaging and manufacturing.

“Magill is an experienced entrepreneur who has a track record in founding and building technology companies,” says CEO Jesko von Windheim. “He understands both the technical and business aspects of managing breakthrough technologies,” he adds. “Furthermore, his background in semiconductor packaging, photonics and thermal management are a perfect fit for the company.”

Magill was a founder and chief technology officer of Unitive Electronics Inc, a packaging service that he spun out of the Microelectronics Center of North Carolina (MCNC) and was acquired by Amkor in 2004. He also played an integral role in the start up of Optical Process Automation (acquired by JDS Uniphase in 2000). At JDSU, Magill managed groups in advanced packaging, standardization, and automation of photonics products. More recently, he was a founder of Avo Photonics, an optoelectronic design and contract manufacturing company in Philadelphia, PA, where he was CTO and VP for business development.
