AKHAN Semiconductor Inc of Gurnee, IL, USA - which specializes in the fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronics-grade diamond as functional semiconductors - says that Dan Gravelle has assumed the role of interim chief financial officer (effective 1 June).

He succeeds Kristie King, who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. “I want to thank Kristie for her many contributions to the growth and development of our company over the last two years,” comments president & chief operating officer Carl Shurboff.

Gravelle, an executive with experience of transforming businesses around the world, will play a key role in supporting investments that the firm is making to scale production of its Miraj diamond products and introduce innovative approaches that aim to strengthen its competitive position. He has more than 25 years of start-up and late-stage business and financial experience across key areas including corporate strategy and finance, mergers and acquisitions, treasury and balance sheet management and new business development. AKHAN says that he also has a proven track record of driving shareholder value creation, strong financial performance, deal-making and building high-performing teams. Gravelle earned his undergraduate degree from California State University, Chico and his Finance MBA from Golden Gate University.

“We have built a strong executive leadership team, introducing game-changing technology into the global market,” says founder & CEO Adam Khan. Gravelle’s insight and expertise will “support our company in the next-phase of our strategic plan and in building our global enterprise,” he adds. “I look forward to working with him in bridging the ecosystems of Silicon Valley and the Diamond Prairie we are growing in our Northern Illinois headquarters.”
