OLEDWorks LLC, a light engine and panel manufacturer, has named Wolfgang Goergen as managing director of OLEDWorks GmbH, officials said.
Goergen takes over the role from Eric Meulenkamp, who will continue to serve on the firm’s scientific advisory board. Goergen will be tasked with leading strategic growth and development for the company.
He has over two decades of experience in engineering, project and account management in the semiconductor, equipment manufacturing and organic electronic industries, the company said.
“Wolfgang was closely involved with the development of equipment and systems of OLEDWorks’ state-of-the-art OLED manufacturing facility in Aachen, Germany, making him a natural fit for a seamless transition from Eric Meulenkamp,” said David DeJoy, CEO of OLEDWorks.
“We are very grateful to Eric Meulenkamp for his leadership and vision for assisting in setting up OLEDWorks GmbH and disentangling it from Philips. We look forward to Wolfgang’s leadership and expertise to champion the continued and accelerating growth of OLEDWorks GmbH.”
OLEDWorks completed the acquisition of key organic light-emitting diode light source assets and intellectual property from Koninklijke Philips N.V. in 2015. Manufacturing was to continue in the existing facility in Aachen, Germany, with the establishment of OLEDWorks GmbH, the local company said in November 2015.
