Cambridge Nanotherm appoints Jed Dorsheimer to board
Cambridge Nanotherm, producer of nanoceramic thermal management technology, has announced the appointment of solid-state lighting expert Jed Dorsheimer to the company's board of directors.
Dorsheimer's role as managing director of equity research, display and lighting at US-based investment banking and institutional research firm Canaccord Genuity makes him the ideal candidate to help develop the company's strategic direction, according to the company.
Cambridge Nanotherm CEO Erwin Wolf said: "As LED manufacturers switch their focus to general lighting, LEDs are getting brighter and this is causing them to heat up. This isn't good for the LED chip, which degrades rapidly when too hot. Getting the heat out of the chip as effectively as possible is critical and that's where Cambridge Nanotherm's industry-leading thermal management solutions come in.
"Jed's unique combination of technical and commercial knowledge, coupled with industry-leading financial expertise will go a long way to helping us to capitalise on the market. Jed is a perfect fit for Nanotherm as we progress to the next stage in our growth strategy. We're delighted to welcome him to the board, and I look forward to working alongside him."
On his appointment, Dorsheimer said: "It's a great time to be joining the board of directors of Cambridge Nanotherm as the company continues its rapid growth. The company is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the developments in the LED market driven by the general lighting segment."
"The potential for Cambridge Nanotherm is huge, and I'm looking forward to working with Erwin and the rest of the team to help the company achieve its business aims."
