Micro-optical technology company, Preciseley Microtechnology, has announced three new additions to its executive management team to support the continued growth of the business.

Preciseley Microtechnology Corporation (PMC) offers solutions helping design engineers solve complex problems for 5G networks, data centers, AR/VR, and automotive and industrial LiDAR systems.

The company says the three new additions will strengthen its executive leadership team.

David Somo was appointed president and CEO, effective June 22, 2021. David comes from ON Semiconductor where he served as senior vice president of strategy, marketing, and systems engineering during the past eleven years.

Joe Huising was named vice president of finance and brings more than 20 years of senior management experience leading public and private finance and accounting teams.

And Subramaniam (Hari) Hariharan was named vice president of manufacturing and operations. Hari's career spans more than 38 years, with significant experience across manufacturing, supply chain, and quality control in the semiconductor and broader EMS industries globally.

The new additions will augment PMC's existing leadership team that include Dr Tiansheng Zhou, PMCs founder, CTO, and member of its board of directors who will continue his role as chief technologist, and Lawrence Lam, who remains vice president of engineering.

“I'm excited to welcome my new colleagues and look forward to working together to building the company and realising the vision I had when I founded PMC,” says Dr Zhou.

“Following the strategic investment by ACE Equity Partners and BDC Capital in PMC during 2020, we continue to invest in the business to enhance our product portfolio, manufacturing, and operational capabilities with expanded products and services to serve our customers better.”

PMC chairman of the board of directors, Michael Prahl, says he's pleased to welcome the new members to the executive management team.

“The focus of these additions was to bring in experienced leaders who understand the megatrends underway within our industry and can develop and execute a strategic plan to accelerate revenue growth and deliver on the company's significant potential for its customers, partners, employees, and shareholders.”

With its position in complex optic MEMS solutions, David Somo believes PMC is strongly positioned to capture high-growth opportunities created by industry megatrends in 5G networks, data centers, AR/VR and 3D LiDAR-based sensing applications.

“PMC has developed a differentiated product portfolio that uniquely solves the most demanding systems challenges for our customers and partners,” says Somo.

“I'm passionate about enabling customer success and excited to work with Dr Zhou and the team to build on the company's foundation to provide superior systems solutions in our focus markets while accelerating growth.”
