After 19 years at the helm of CST Global, Neil Martin has taken the decision to leave his role for challenges outside. Neil and I agreed that he should continue until a suitable replacement could be found.
After conducting a thorough search process, myself and the Board are happy to announce that William McLaughlin will be the new MD of CST Global. Currently COO at Smartkem, William has an extensive background in the semiconductor industry, including senior positions at Global Foundries, Silecs Oy and Motorola. William will relocate back to Glasgow where his family are based and will take up his new post on 3rd September 2019.
Neil has done a truly outstanding job in developing CST Global into its current position and the board appreciates the hard work and effort over the years. Neil will of course be supporting William when he starts as MD for CST Global.
I am sure you will all join me in wishing Neil the very best of luck for the future and will offer a warm welcome and your full support to William in his new role!
