The Management Team

martin-lambMartin Lamb, Chairman

Martin has more than 25 years’ experience in the compound semiconductor materials industry, holding various senior positions including Managing Director of Wafer Technology Ltd.

He was part of the team that effected a management buyout of Wafer Technology in 1994 and in the following six years turned the business profitable and grew sales aggressively, winning the Queen’s Award for Export in 1997. The company was then sold to IQE plc and Martin served on the main board of IQE plc whilst it held listings on the main London Stock Exchange and later on AIM.

Since leaving IQE plc Martin has been active as a business angel, investing in twelve early-stage companies in the technology sector. He serves on the Board of several companies within his portfolio, many of which are commercialising novel technologies related to the production or processing of materials.
