Peiman Hosseini assumes role of CEO of Bodle Technologies
Oxford UK, 16 July 2020. Bodle Technologies Ltd, the Oxford University spin-out transforming non-emissive digital screens with its reflective display technology SRD®, announces co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Peiman (Pei) Hosseini as new CEO with immediate effect.
Pei Hosseini who founded the company with Oxford professor Harish Bhaskaran has led its technology development over the last 5 years. He takes over the CEO position from Mike Clary, who stands down after 3 years. Through Clary’s leadership Bodle has developed a focus on customer-driven innovation and professionalism. He has also been a driving force to the organisation’s recent growth into Taiwan.
Excited and determined to lead Bodle into its next expansion stage, Hosseini has a vision for taking SRD® and making it the display of choice for a variety of non-intrusive dynamic displays.
Hosseini states: "Reflective is the next big market for information display, and our unique solid state technology produces vibrant colours that can capture unique markets that we are not even thinking about today. Think displays everywhere that are non-intrusive, and do not throw harmful blue-light at you.”
He concludes: “Mike architected Bodle's transformation from a University spinout and got us to where we are today, it is my honour and privilege to take what we have done so far together and lead it into the future with his continued support." Clary will maintain his position on the board, whilst continuing to be a significant shareholder.
Professor Harish Bhaskaran, Founder Director added:
“Bodle’s progress over the past three years and certainly more so in the last 12 months has been phenomenal for a hardware company. Pei, Mike and I have worked together to transform Bodle from a small R&D operation into an organization that runs cutting-edge, research and development in the UK and we are on the cusp of manufacturing real display products in Taiwan.”
He continues: “We thank Mike for his contribution and commitment to Bodle Technologies, as well as the close friendship he has developed with Pei and I as co-founders. He has laid the foundations for the company to forge a confident new path forward as we scale-up our operations with Pei at the helm.”
Mike Clary adds “Companies with founder CEOs are a fantastic testament to great technology in an exciting ever-evolving market space. I have had a great time developing this fantastic technology in Oxford, with the founders. This industry is ripe for disruption by Bodle’s transformative technology.”
