Previously, Nat was CEO of Cambridge CMOS Sensors, and has held executive leadership positions at AMS AG and Wolfson Microelectronics, where he led the businesses through periods of rapid growth as well as a non-executive position at AIM-listed Concurrent Technologies plc.

His passion and dedication will be missed by everyone at Filtronic, and we wish him the very best as he transitions to the next phase of his career. I am delighted to be able to announce Nat’s appointment as CEO. During our selection process it was clear that Nat’s understanding of Filtronic, its markets and potential, make him the ideal leader to replace Richard. We are confident that he will work, together with the excellent Executive Team, to lead Filtronic through the next phase of its growth trajectory.”
