NeoPhotonics appoints Dr Yanbing Li to board

NeoPhotonics Corp of San Jose, CA, USA (a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for high-speed communications) says that Dr Yanbing Li has been appointed to its board of directors.

Currently VP of engineering at Google (focusing on Google Cloud), Li has extensive leadership experience in general management and engineering in the USA and China.

Previously she was senior VP & general manager for the Storage and Availability business unit at VMware, responsible for a portfolio of products in software-defined storage, hyper-converged infrastructure, data protection, and storage and availability services for the cloud. She led product development, engineering, and go-to-market strategies and led the business to become one of the fastest-growing businesses for VMware and a market leader.

During her 11-year tenure with VMware, Li held multiple executive leadership roles including general manager for vCloud Air storage, VP of engineering for storage, VP of central engineering, VP of continuing product development, VP of global R&D sites and managing director of China R&D.

Prior to VMware, Li worked at electronic design automation (EDA) software provider Synopsys for nine years in various research, development and engineering leadership roles.

Li has a Ph.D. degree from Princeton University, a master of science degree from Cornell University and a bachelor of science degree from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in electrical engineering and computer engineering. She is also a graduate of the Stanford Executive Program at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.

NeoPhotonics is a “recognized leader in photonic integration for coherent high-speed transmission,” comments Li. “This technology is a critical enabler for the growth of cloud computing and artificial intelligence and offers exciting growth potential,” she believes.

“Her extensive background in data-center and cloud operations and deep technology experience in cloud services will provide our board with valuable insights in the ongoing evolution of the key markets we address,” comments chairman & CEO Tim Jenks.
