CEO – Compound Semiconductors

My client is primed to disrupt the £20bn LED manufacturing market! They've produced a 'world first' epitaxial layer, on a commercially desirable wafer size, which is capable of producing the world's most efficient LEDs at no additional cost to conventional manufacturing methods.

They're a well funded 'start-up' who will remain fabless and operate on a licensing business model - selling IP to the large LED manufacturers (rather than compete with them directly). They've contracted ongoing R&D at Cambridge University and have strategic 3rd party manufacturing partnerships in place, but need a strong CEO at the helm to commercialise the technology. With low barriers to entry and a vast array of target application areas, this is a very high potential venture if they can find the right person to undertake the following:

· Manage and grow the business to deliver against the Business Plan

· Work closely with the CTO to help deliver the technology

· Develop and deliver a commercial plan to achieve product licenses

· Develop and maintain a deep knowledge of the LED market

· Raise the necessary funds to enable business growth

· Oversee all operations to ensure desired results are achieved

· Work with the Board to enable a smooth running of the business

· Build relationships with key partners/stakeholders and act as a point of contact for shareholders

· Build, lead and motivate internal and external teams

· Develop and deliver a PR strategy

· Work with the company's accountants to deliver regular financial reports to the Board

· Develop and manage the Company's policies and procedures

This role will suit a seasoned business leader who has built and led a hi-tech 'start up' before (ideally in the semiconductor/electronics/scientific space). Experience in LED technology is desirable, but not a 'must'
