Dr. Cheung has recently held the positions of VP of R&D and VP for Product Engineering & Quality at NeoPhotonics China. Prior to joining the company, he served as the director of the Optical Communications Components (OCC) business unit - China Operations for SAE Magnetics (HK) Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of TDK Corp. of Japan. There he managed the entire OEM / ODM business for SAE in China. During his tenure at SAE/TDK the OCC business grew four-fold, highlighted by the acquisition of Acasia Technologies, an affiliate company of the Hong Kong Applied Science and Research Institute.

Other experience includes various R&D, product development, new product introduction and industrial strategy and management positions at Philips Semiconductors (discrete packaging) and at SAE Magnetics (magnetic recording heads) for more than 10 years.

Dr. Cheung received a PhD degree from Cambridge University in Materials & Mechanics and a BEng degree from London University in Mechanical Engineering.

"Raymond's Shenzhen location underscores our commitment to the integration of product development, manufacturing and quality assurance within a completely vertical operation; one capable of producing the most advanced optical networking components in the industry and delivering complete customer satisfaction," said Tim Jenks, NeoPhotonics' CEO.

"I am very excited about this opportunity and look forward to tackling the challenges ahead," said Dr. Cheung. "I regard the added responsibility as an opportunity to raise the company's operational performance to the next level of competitiveness and production in order to support the company's continuous growth objectives and deliver greater value to our customers."
