Development and commercialisation organisation Lucideon, Stoke-on-Trent, UK, which specialises in materials technologies and processes, has appointed Anike Bütow its new Technology and Strategic Leader. In the new role, the company stated that Bütow will be tasked with identifying opportunities in new markets, services and technologies by assessing global trends and their value, including global strategy assessments and the domestic and international expansion of the company.

Lucideon added that Bütow, who is based in Zurich, will bring an international perspective and a wide range of expertise to the role. Speaking five languages, she is a Certified Internal Auditor and registered dentist, with experience in finance and internal controls, dentistry in the public and private sectors and in the management of medical device clinical trials.

Speaking on her appointment, Bütow stated, “Lucideon is all about innovation and its business touches on so many industries and technologies. Our goal is to be the technical partner for emerging technologies and to be really at the forefront as a consulting partner for companies and organisations. The sky is the limit. We can touch on many aspects in the global marketplace and are in an exceptional position to expand the business globally.”

In August, Lucideon announced a significant investment in new staff, systems, facilities and ventures in new markets, adding new laboratory space at its New York State facility and a £250,000 investment package in IT systems. The company now employs more than 240 staff around the world. Its global presence includes offices and laboratories based in North and South Carolina, USA, New York, USA, and the Far East.

The company has also recently opened new offices in Switzerland and Austria, and is planning to open sales offices in China, Japan and Korea. Near its headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent, it is supporting the National Advanced Sintering Centre (NASC), to fast-track advanced materials and materials processes into commercial products.
