Lumentum appoints Wajid Ali as CFO

Optical and photonic optical component and subsystem maker Lumentum Holdings Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA has appointed Wajid Ali as executive VP & chief financial officer. He will also serve as principal financial officer, replacing Christopher Coldren, who had been serving as interim CFO since June.

Lumentum says that Ali has extensive financial management expertise and a deep knowledge of the technology industry. He joins from Synaptics Inc, where he was senior VP & chief financial officer. Previously, he was VP & controller of Teledyne Technologies, after having been CFO at DALSA Corp, a public semiconductor company that was acquired by Teledyne in 2011. He also held key financial management positions at AMD and ATI, overseeing the finance functions for large business groups.

Ali has a Masters of Business Administration from the Schulich School of Business, York University, a Master of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from York University, and CPA and CMA designations from Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario, Canada.

“His background - most recently with Synaptics, Teledyne Technologies as well as DALSA - uniquely qualify him to lead our finance team as well as to help drive the company to the next level of performance,” comments president & CEO Alan Lowe. “Wajid will hit the ground running, especially when it comes to the integration efforts of our recent Oclaro acquisition,” he adds.

“It is an exciting time to join the company, with the recent acquisition and the opportunity to capitalize upon the strengths of the newly combined company,” comments Ali.
