BluGlass appoints non-executive director
BluGlass Ltd of Silverwater, Australia – which was spun off from the III-nitride department of Macquarie University in 2005 to develop a proprietary low-temperature process using remote-plasma chemical vapor deposition (RPCVD) to grow materials including gallium nitride (GaN) and indium gallium nitride (InGaN) on glass substrates – has appointed James Walker as a non-executive director on its board.
Walker is said to be a seasoned executive, with a track record in commercializing cutting-edge technology in emerging markets. He has headed a number of Australian and international technology companies, including as CEO of DroneShield and chief financial officer of Seeing Machines, and has held leadership positions in a number of growth companies including Hotel Dynamics, Fluorotechnics and Optalert.
Walker is currently the CFO of Fulcrum, an Australian technology company with proprietary software that enables large organizations to drive rapid commercial outcomes through an improved, data-driven customer experience. It is reckoned that his experience of finance, strategic management, mergers & acquisitions (M&A) and initial public offerings (IPO) will add value to the BluGlass board.
