Klastech Appoints New CEO
Nov 2010
DORTMUND, Germany, Nov. 11, 2010 — Klastech Laser Technologies GmbH, a diode-pumped solid-state laser technology provider, announced the appointment of Christopher J. Madin as its managing director and CEO.

Joining the company in March 2009 as chief sales officer, he has since concentrated on delivering a strong global sales funnel coupled to the development of a distinctive brand for Klastech products, said the company. He brings more than 15 years of experience in the optoelectronics industry.

In addition, Madin led the company’s entry into the US and Japanese markets, overseeing the creation of global dedicated sales distribution channels.

“Mr. Madin’s appointment is a great step forward for the company and underlines the transition of company focus from pre-serial development and sales to a larger commercial focus,” said Dr. Bernd Geiger, managing partner for Triangle Venture Capital. “He is very well placed to focus the company’s efforts toward ensuring that its engineering and operational capabilities continue to develop in order to maximize the very strong growth potential the company has identified in the marketplace.”
