Carlos Lee appointed new director general of EPIC

The European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) has announced that Carlos Lee will become its new director general with immediate effect. The announcement, made at the association’s recent annual general meeting, will see Lee replace Thomas Pearsall, who has been with the organization since its formulation in 2003.

Lee has most recently headed the advocacy program at the Semiconductor Equipment and Materials Industry Association (SEMI) where he was director general. EPIC will draw on Lee’s 15 years’ experience in association management to further their program of working with research institutes and industries to maximize competitiveness in the European photonics market.

New EPIC director general Carlos Lee commented, “As Director General I will further expand the solid value proposition for our members active in displays, lasers, lighting, optical fibers, optics, semiconductor, photovoltaics, sensors, telecommunication and other critical photonic related fields. I am pleased to announce that EPIC will open an office in Brussels. We will implement closer collaboration with the EU in order to better represent the interests of our members and photonics, a Key Enabling technology and future EU Public-Private Partnership.”
