  • GT Advanced Technologies, Inc. (GTAT) Appoints VP To Lead New Growth 0 comments
    Feb 25, 2013 3:31 PM | about stocks: Q

    GT Advanced Technologies made an announcement regarding some of its newest developments. The company announced that Linda Reinhard has been appointed as vice president, new business development, and product management for the GT's sapphire, DSS™, and HiCz™ products. Reinhard will lead GT's growth into new market segments, driving the product roadmap to capitalize on new opportunities. She will report to chief operating officer, Dan Squiller.

    Reinhard has over two decades of experience with leading technology companies including Motorola, Cisco, Nokia, and H-P, holding senior level positions in new business development, marketing, sales, and product management. She has lived in Asia and spent much time evangelizing and introducing new products to major OEMs in China and other Asian markets. She holds a BSEE from University of Illinois and an MBA from The Kellogg Graduate School of Management.

    "Linda brings deep experience and a proven track record in both product management and new business development," said Squiller. "Linda's initial focus will be on growing our sapphire material and ASF equipment business, particularly new opportunities in the cover and touch screen markets. She has extensive experience in Asia as well as in the mobile device segment which we believe could be a significant area of opportunity for our sapphire business. Linda will also drive our product management and new business development for HiCz and our traditional PV business."

    In the same announcement, GT revealed that it will be showcasing its cover and touch screen sapphire material in the 2013 Mobile World Congress, the world's largest mobile device event. The event takes place from February 25-28 in Barcelona, Spain. GT will be exhibiting at MWC in Hall 5 Stand 5D32.

    "Our goal for the show is to continue educating the market about the unique properties of GT's ASF-grown sapphire material for cover and touch screen applications," remarked Reinhard. "ASF-grown sapphire's durability and resistance to scratching makes it ideally suited for a wide range of cover and touch screen applications from ruggedized phones, camera covers, point of sale devices and smartphone and touch screen devices. Other reinforced glass and cover screen technologies try to emulate what ASF-grown sapphire does naturally."
