Nexeon announces new CEO

Dr Scott Brown appointed as CEO of Nexeon.

The appointment comes less than one month after the £10m investment round, which is making significant technical progress in proving the viability of its silicon anode technology.

Dr Scott Brown is the latest addition to the Nexeon team. Having held senior management roles at Cambridge Display Technology (“CDT”), Sumation (a 50:50 Joint Venture company between CDT and Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd) and Dow Corning, Scott brings a strong track record of intellectual property management and licensing. Scott has worked in the US and more recently Japan, where most of the world’s leading electronics companies are based. He was a key member of the executive management team during CDT’s NASDAQ IPO in December 2004 and their eventual acquisition by Sumitomo Chemical in September of 2007.
