Nuburu appoints Matthew Philpott as chief marketing and sales officer
14.03.2023 - Experienced laser industry veteran takes the helm to lead Nuburu’s growth plans.
Nuburu Inc, a leading innovator in high-power and high-brightness industrial blue laser technology, today announced the executive appointment of Dr Matthew Philpott as chief marketing and sales officer. Dr Philpott will oversee all aspects of marketing and sales. He will lead the team to further develop Nuburu’s product roadmap and to accelerate market penetration across all segments.
“We are excited to welcome Matthew as chief marketing and sales officer as he brings a proven track record of globally-coordinated, exponential growth and a vision for customer success which addresses the full customer experience from process development to mass production,” said Dr Mark Zediker, CEO and co-founder of Nuburu. “Matthew will help drive our ambitious growth plans and accelerate Nuburu’s commercial efforts.”
“Nuburu’s technology is critically important today as mass production inherently demands zero rework and a stable process-window which can easily be adopted to unpredicted production challenges,” said Dr Philpott. “Customers demand parts per million yields, not simply a best effort. As Nuburu’s blue lasers offer precision, speed, near defect-free and a multi-emitter redundancy that is unmatched by current state-of-the-art solutions, the timing is perfect for the blue solution from Nuburu. I could not be more honored to join Nuburu’s executive team at such a pivotal time.”
Dr Philpott brings more than twenty years of laser industry experience from Coherent Corp, where he was most recently the director of global business development. At Coherent, he led a multinational electric vehicle welding team, taking Coherent from a new entrant to being a globally recognized top supplier for battery and EV production. Dr Philpott holds a BS in chemistry from Furman University and a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Washington.
