Edward Chan, Ph.D., has been named executive vice president for Dayton, Ohio-based Angstron Materials Inc.

He brings more than 30 years of international industrial experience to his new position with the graphene manufacturer. Dr. Chan – who has worked largely for Fortune 500 companies in the course of his career – has built a strong reputation for performance results in the areas of platform commercialization, product innovation, intellectual property strategy and ongoing market development.

“I’ve been in the technical business for a long time,” says Dr. Chan. “Angstron is at an exciting juncture in its evolution.  The company recently expanded its global capacity to produce graphene by the kiloton; that coupled with its science and engineering expertise and extensive intellectual property portfolio are necessary ingredients for growth. My goal is to generate a healthy top and bottom line and ultimately take the company public.”
