Rusnano CEO joins NeoPhotonics board
Photonic integrated circuit manufacturer NeoPhotonics Corp. has appointed Rusnano USA Inc. President and CEO Dmitry Akhanov to its board of directors.
Akhanov replaces Sergey Polikarpov as the designated nominee of Russian sovereign fund investor Rusnano, which has a contractual right to designate one nominee to NeoPhotonics’ board. The two companies completed a private placement investment last May.
Before joining Rusnano, Akhanov was the head of the Russian Federal Energy Agency. He also served as the head of the Strategy Department of RAO UES (a state-owned electric power holding company in Russia). In conjunction with this, he implemented several corporate projects for the separation, merger and acquisition of major energy companies in Russia.
