Marshall most recently served as the President and Chief Executive Officer at GE Lighting EMEA, the $600 million turnover division of General Electric specialising in lighting solutions.

In this role, he led the infrastructure development across the entire region for GE's Lighting business, which included transitioning the business to an energy solutions provider, encompassing LED technologies.

Prior to this, he served as the President and Chief Executive Officer at GE Industrial (low voltage) Systems & Consumer Products EMEA, a division of GE integrating the GE Industrial Systems and GE Appliances & GE Lighting ("Consumer Products") groups in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Philip Marshall holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Thames Valley University, and is a qualified Chartered Management Accountant

Also, PhotonStar’s Chief Financial Officer, Russell Banks, who joined the Group in April 2013, has been appointed to the board with immediate effect.

James McKenzie, Group Chief Executive, says, "We are very pleased to welcome Philip to the Board. He has a strong industry background and brings valuable experience in technology commercialisation and strategy at an exciting time for our business."

PhotonStar comprises two divisions. The first is LED Lighting Fixtures which works with lighting designers, architects, house builders, facilities management companies and sustainability consultants to provide intelligent, high-end LED lighting solutions for the commercial and architectural market. The second is LED Light Engines which provides LED lighting solutions for specialist applications such as film & television production lighting, UV curing and medical applications.

 



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.
