Lin, who served as the board’s chair since July, will focus on continuing to develop the company into a full-scale, global provider of LED-based luminaires. When he was executive general manager (EGM) of MLS, he was instrumental in its acquisition of LEDvance from Osram. He now looks to expand into market segments like ‘smart homes’ and ‘human-centric’ lighting.

“Over the past two years, LEDvance has made great progress in a volatile market environment, by building a highly successful luminaires business and becoming more agile as an organization to better meet the needs of our customers,” says Lin. “I look forward to working with the entire team to seize opportunities in North America, Europe and emerging markets.”
