“AKHAN Semiconductor and its breakthrough Miraj Diamond® Technology provides me with a unique opportunity to join a burgeoning company with products that will change all aspects of the way we live our lives, from more efficient cell phones to technologies that help keep our nation safe,” said Davis. “Adam Khan and the executive leadership team at AKHAN has developed game-changing technology, and I look forward to bringing it to the masses.”
In his new role at AKHAN, Davis will rely on his distinguished intellectual capital, gained from working closely with a powerful network of business partners and colleagues, to expand AKHAN globally, develop new product lines, and further transform the organization to create a culture of abundant thinking and powerful possibilities.
“Tom has a history of constant achievement and a proven track-record in taking successful businesses and growing them to reach their max potential,” said Adam Khan, CEO and Founder of AKHAN Semiconductor. “Tom will play a key role in developing market outreach and customer acquisition strategies across our entire Miraj Diamond® portfolio to ensure we’re continuing to meet the key growth metrics our stakeholders have come to expect. He’ll be a welcome addition to the executive team.”
