COO/VP Operations

Germany

Opportunity

Managed by Emma Lemont / Researcher

We are working with a well-funded venture capital backed company, based in Southern Germany, which has developed an optical interconnect system for the mass business and consumer markets. The company already has a proven optical IC business, but the new optical interconnect solution has a massive market opportunity.

The company has now built a factory to manufacture the module that will now ramp up from samples to volume production.

We are looking for a COO to join the exec team with the following experience:

• A deep background in manufacturing operations – building and running factories as well as running fabless manufacturing partnerships.
• Experience in semis, solar or optical are desirable, though not essential
• A broad experience of managing all aspects of the supply chain, manufacturing and logistics.
• Deep experience of working with Asian partners, suppliers and customers.
• Ideally will have a mix of corporate as well as start-up experience, but this is not essential.
