Abstract:
Nexeon's CFO, Michael Black has been voted one of 2012's ‘Hot 20 FDs in TMT' (technology, media and telecoms). The awards - the first of their kind organised by BDO, the UK arm of the world's fifth largest accountancy network - were made at an awards dinner last night in London.

Nexeon CFO Receives TMT Accolade

Oxfordshire, UK | Posted on November 7th, 2012

The judging committee assessed all nominees against criteria such as their breadth of experience, reputation in the sector and in wider industry, and on their achievements. Mr Black was praised by the judging panel for his significant expertise in scientific technology and his desire to ‘do things right' from the start.

The hotly contested event saw finance leaders nominated by CEOs, banks, lawyers, private equity houses and media influencers across the country.

"Over the summer we have had the pleasure of meeting many people who have been nominated by their peers in the sector, and we have been overwhelmed by the talent and ambition, commercial focus, vision and scope of the remits that FDs have undertaken in 2012", commented Julian Frost, Head of TMT at BDO.

"I'm delighted to have picked up this unexpected award", said Michael Black. "It's been a good year so far, having only recently joined Nexeon and now enjoying being part of the team making a real difference to the performance of rechargeable batteries, an issue important to all our lives."

The awards Dinner yesterday featured a presentation from Matthew Riley, CEO of Daisy Group plc.

Last month, Nexeon was named in the prestigious 2012 Global Cleantech 100.

About Nexeon
Nexeon Ltd. (‘Nexeon’) is a battery materials and licensing company developing silicon anodes for the next generation of lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. A spin out of Imperial Innovations, Nexeon scientists are showing that producing silicon with particular morphologies makes it possible to overcome its limitations as an anode material. Batteries made with silicon anodes have significant performance advantages over their traditional equivalents.

Nexeon is based in Oxfordshire, and has a fully automated and instrumented pilot plant. The pilot plant closely represents a commercial manufacturing facility, and allows an accurate understanding of the processes and costs associated with making anode materials. The technology has been conceived with a ‘drop in’ approach, requiring the minimum of changes to an existing Li-ion battery manufacturing operation.

Nexeon has established a growing portfolio of patents covering materials and fabrication processes, and is building a store of available know-how which is available through licensing.
