Warwick Ventures Limited has appointed Kevin Marks as its new Chief Operations Officer.
Kevin, who joined Warwick Ventures as a Business Development Manager (BDM) in 2009, will be responsible for managing the company’s team of BDMs and will oversee all major contracts negotiated by Warwick Ventures.
In addition, he will play a leading role alongside the CEO, Quentin Compton-Bishop, in developing Warwick Ventures as a technology commercialisation company, cultivating key relationships with industry, potential licensees and investor groups, as well as developing and delivering services and support to academics and departments within the University.
Kevin will also continue to act as BDM on a number of projects, including Anvil Semiconductors, a company developing Silicon Carbide (SiC) Power Semiconductor technology that Kevin helped to set up in 2010.
He said: “This is an exciting time to be working for Warwick Ventures as we continue to develop and grow as a separate business. I’m very much looking forward to playing my part along with our excellent team of BDMs in providing an excellent service to the University’s researchers and to industry.”
