AMS Technologies appoints Benno Oderkerk as a member of the Advisory Board

01.07.2021

Benno Oderkerk joins the supervisory board of AMS Technologies AG with immediate effect. Oderkerk, a photonics specialist, co-founded the Dutch spectroscopy company Avantes in 1994 and led it as CEO until 2020.

Oderkerk's experience with the transformation of a distributor of spectrometers to a provider of self-developed spectroscopy solutions is particularly valuable for AMS Technologies CEO Jan Meise: "With this history and his many years of experience in the photonics industry, Benno Oderkerk is an ideal fit for our corporate strategy. In addition to value-added distribution of optics, thermal management and electronics, we are expanding AMS Technologies into a provider of custom-designed and manufactured systems based on our extensive technology portfolio. We are very pleased to have Benno Oderkerk join us on this journey."

"As a born entrepreneur and photonics specialist, this task is particularly appealing to me," says Benno Oderkerk. "Not only as President of the European Photonics Industry Consortium EPIC, I have known AMS Technologies for many years and am sure that I can contribute to the successful further development of the company with my input."
