Australian semiconductor developer BluGlass has appointed James (Jim) Haden as its president.

"Jim's unique synergy of deep technical, commercialisation and leadership skills along with his extensive customer and supply chain network will be invaluable in solving our reliability challenges as we transition BluGlass to profitability and deliver a pipeline of next-generation laser products to market," said BluGlass executive chair James Walker.

"Our ability to attract an industry executive of Jim's calibre is a testament to the quality of our industry-leading technology, which addresses the growing demand for brighter and better performing lasers. Jim has delivered significant revenue growth and built enviable market leadership positions throughout his career and has hands-on experience optimising operations and identifying strategic opportunities, including facilitating successful mergers and acquisitions."

Haden, who will continue to be based in the US, joins Bluglass from SLD Laser, where he has been working as an operational and technical advisor.

He was previously COO at nLight Photonics, and director of operations at Coherent, JDS Uniphase and SDL.

Haden is also founder and CEO of Cloud Effective.

He holds bachelor's and master's degrees in electronic engineerings, both from the University of Southern California, and has been granted six patents.

"It is a very exciting time to be joining BluGlass, as we finalise product development and prepare to launch a range of in-demand products into high-growth markets. It will be an amazing journey as we transition BluGlass from cutting-edge R&Dto a globally dominant commercial photonics company."
