Emcore appoints new chief financial officer

The board of directors of Emcore Corp of Alhambra, CA, USA – which provides indium phosphide (InP)-based optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for the broadband and specialty fiber-optics markets – has appointed Jikun Kim as chief financial officer (effective 20 June), succeeding Mark Weinswig (who served as CFO since October 2010, and will be assisting through a transition period).

"We want to thank Mark for all of his contributions during his tenure and his support for the changes made at Emcore over the past few years," says president & CEO Jeffrey Rittichier.

"Kim brings broad operational and strategic experience to the organization and will play a critical role in leading the company through the execution of our business plan," comments Rittichier.   

Kim has more than 20 years of experience in the high-technology industry. He has held senior financial management positions at several public and private high-growth companies. Most recently, he served as CFO of after-market aerospace support services firm Merex Group.

Prior to Merex, Kim was CFO of AeroVironment (a technology solutions provider with a portfolio of unmanned aircraft systems and electric transportation systems) and held senior finance positions with Raytheon Vision Systems. He holds a Masters of Business Administration in Finance from the Columbia Business School, a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of California Los Angeles, and a Bachelors of Science from the University of California Berkeley.
