Rubicon appoints senior VP of sales & marketing

Rubicon Technology Inc of Bensenville, IL, USA (which makes monocrystalline sapphire substrates and products for the LED, RFIC, semiconductor and optical industries) says that Warren S. Stewart III has joined the firm as senior VP of sales & marketing, providing leadership to the global sales and marketing team and reporting to president & CEO Raja M. Parvez.

Stewart was VP, sales, at LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc in Durham, NC from 2005 to 2013, and was employed by Cree since 1997 in increasingly responsible sales management roles. Previously, following his service as an officer in the US Navy, he gained international experience in advanced materials with Superior Graphite Co. He earned an M.B.A. degree from the International University of Japan in Niigata-ken, Japan, and a B.S. degree from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

“Warren Stewart’s experience forging strong relationships with leading manufacturers in the LED industry and driving sales growth make him an excellent addition to Rubicon at this pivotal stage,” believes Parvez. “With the recent launch of our line of large-diameter patterned sapphire substrates (PSS), we are bringing an all-new value proposition to the world’s most sophisticated LED chip-makers. Warren’s depth of industry experience and his proven leadership skills will provide an advantage in the further development of our global customer relationships,” he adds.

“Rubicon’s reputation in the sapphire industry for product quality, innovation, and reliability has created an excellent platform for the next stage in the company’s development,” comments Stewart. “Rubicon is facilitating even greater efficiency for its LED customers with large-diameter polished wafers and PSS and, at the same time, is enhancing its capabilities for premium-quality optical sapphire.”
