BRUCHSAL, Germany. - Wednesday, October 7th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Gildas Sorin has been appointed CEO of Bruchsal-based CYNORA GmbH with immediate effect. His great experience in the OLED and display industry makes Mr. Sorin the ideal candidate to take CYNORA to the next stage.
This is a strong sign for the development of CYNORA being a technology leader in the field of TADF emitter systems for organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) since its start in 2008. The French top manager brings his long and international experiences in OLED industries, and his change to the management is also regarded as a signal of the CYNORA partners to use the technology leap and translate it into specific economic successes.
CYNORA pioneers in the research and development of innovative pure-organic and novel copper-based TADF emitter systems, amongst other materials and technologies. In addition to sublimable materials for well established vacuum-processing, a multitude of materials allowing for efficient liquid processing in coating and printing techniques are available. In the past years CYNORA succeeded in developing and establishing a novel technology platform for iridium-free emitters that are tailor-made for any customer requirements. The concerted efforts of CYNORA’s R&D team and the company’s supporters have resulted in more than 280 patent applications and granted patents, as well as several coveted scientific and industrial awards.
Gildas Sorin started his career within the French Thomson company, where he held several general manager positions and became director of its semi-conductor activity. He then joined Philips Electronics as vice president in the Display Division. In 2003 he became CEO of Dresden-based Novaled GmbH.
