12 Dec 2016: Evince strengthens board with new chairman appointment

Evince Technology (Evince) has today confirmed the appointment of John Urwin as the new chairman of its board of directors.  He joins with over 30 years’ experience of working in the global semiconductor industry, and brings an extensive network of industry contacts that will be invaluable as Evince moves forward with the development of its breakthrough technologies for synthetic diamond-based electronics.

John has been instrumental in helping to accelerate the growth and development of a range of technology-based businesses in Europe and UK – from start-ups to multi-national corporations – and has a powerful blend of strategic, commercial and technical engineering skills.  In addition to his new role at Evince, he is chairman of Adaptive Array Systems and has held non-executive directorships with Arctic Silicon Devices, Cambridge CMOS Sensors, Jennic and Pyreos.  Earlier in his career he was operations director on the board of Wolfson Microelectronics when the company’s annual sales grew from US $2M to $230M, and it floated on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.

Evince CEO Gareth Taylor said: “John is a significant addition to Evince who will play a pivotal role in helping to shape our technology development and ‘route to market’ strategies.  He is also the first of a number of key appointments we are planning to make over the next few months.”

John Urwin said: “Evince has a compelling technology that can enable a wide range of synthetic diamond-based devices and potentially offering unprecedented performance levels over silicon and other technologies.  I am excited to be part of Evince at this stage in its development and at the prospect of working with Gareth, his team and the company’s committed investors on the challenges ahead.”

John succeeds Phil Cammerman who was appointed as chairman in 2012 to help Evince restructure and relaunch its business, and will remain as a member of the Evince board.  His achievements include: refocusing the company’s business model on core technology developments and licensing, rather than device design and manufacture; expanding its potential target applications beyond energy and power; and helping to secure £750,000 of new equity investment earlier this year, together with a £230,000 Innovate UK grant in September 2015.
