News

Emmanuel Lakios, former CEO of SETi, brings 30 years of experience to US maker of chemical vapour deposition systems and materials

CVD Equipment, a US manufacturer of chemical vapour deposition systems and materials, has announced the appointment of Emmanuel Lakios to president & CEO.

“Emmanuel Lakios has more than 30 years' experience in the industry, and we believe he will lead our company to profitability, sustainability and growth” non-executive chairman of the board, Larry Waldman stated. “Since joining us in 2017 as VP of sales & marketing, he has proven to be a valuable asset to CVD Equipment. His combined understanding of the markets, customers and operations along with his respect for the shareholders and all the stakeholders makes him ideal to take on the challenges of the present and future.”

“I am honored by the trust and confidence placed in me by the Board of Directors,” said Lakios, “and I look forward to working with our loyal customer base and incredible team of employees in bringing dynamic new opportunities to CVD Equipment.”

As president & CEO, Lakios aims to re-focus the talent, technology, and innovation within CVD Equipment to leverage company growth and return on equity.

Before joining CVD Equipment, Lakios served as president & CEO at Sensor Electronic Technology Inc (SETi) in South Carolina where he established the company as an industry leader in UV LEDs. As president & COO of Imago Scientific Instruments Corporation in Wisconsin, he oversaw company operations and eventually the sale of the company to Cameca Ametek. He held numerous leadership positions at Veeco Instruments Inc in New York and contributed to increased sales and market share of that company through market focus, organic growth and strategic acquisitions.

A resident of Mount Sinai, Lakios graduated Stony Brook University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
