Cambridge Nanotherm appoints Canaccord Genuity's LED expert Jed Dorsheimer to board

Cambridge Nanotherm Ltd of Haverhill, Suffolk, UK, producer of nanoceramic thermal management technology, has appointed solid-state lighting expert Jed Dorsheimer to its board of directors.

The firm says that 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 a suitable candidate to help develop its strategic direction. As an expert with is reckoned to be a unique perspective of both the current state and the future direction of the solid-state lighting industry, Dorsheimer was ranked as the fifth most influential person in the lighting industry by Lux Magazine.

"As LED manufacturers switch their focus to general lighting, LEDs are getting brighter and this is causing them to heat up," notes CEO Erwin Wolf. "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," he adds.

"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," Wolf continues. "Jed is a perfect fit for Nanotherm as we progress to the next stage in our growth strategy."

"It's a great time to be joining the board of directors of Cambridge Nanotherm as the company continues its rapid growth," says Dorsheimer. "The company is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the developments in the LED market driven by the general lighting segment," he adds. "The potential for Cambridge Nanotherm is huge."
