IC2 is excited to announce that David Mills has been named as President of IC2 effective as of April 18, 2020. David previously held the position of Vice President of Engineering.
David holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida, where his research focused on development of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors for harsh environments. Since joining IC2 in 2014, David has spearheaded major technical advancements across IC2’s portfolio of products, most notably as the inventor of the low-cost silicon via technology used in its DirectShear wall shear stress sensors and piezoelectric microphones.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to contribute to IC2’s growth in the precision instrumentation field, and I couldn’t be more honored to have been chosen to lead the company,” David said. “IC2 has the potential to become a significant player in the scientific instrumentation market, but to achieve this, we must have a clear vision and execute that vision quickly and efficiently. A big part of my job will be to accelerate our ability to bring innovative products to our customers.”
Mark Sheplak, co-founder and Chair of IC2, says he and the rest of the Board of Directors are delighted to have David as its next president. “Having worked with him for more than 10 years, I know that David is the right leader at the right time for IC2. David’s technical background in MEMS research, development, and production, coupled with his management skills, will ensure that IC2 enjoys continued success in its role as a provider of innovative precision instrumentation solutions to the global test and measurement community and positions it to take on new opportunities as it expands its product portfolio.”
David is taking over from Stephen Horowitz, President of IC2 since 2014, who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. “The Board of Directors would like to thank Steve for his excellent leadership over the past six years, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors,” says Sheplak.
