Henkel Names New Global Product Manager for Line of Thermal Management Materials

Press release date: September 26, 2006

The electronics group of Henkel has announced the appointment of Jason Brandi to the position of Global Product Manager for Phase Change and Thermal Adhesives. Brandi's promotion to this post will serve to leverage the materials leader's already prominent position in the increasingly important thermal management arena. As the global champion for Henkel's line of thermal management products, Brandi is responsible for the introduction of new technologies in tandem with the optimization of the current product line worldwide. The thermal interface materials market is very fast-evolving, as the proliferation of thinner and smaller electronics products become the norm rather than the exception. Henkel's continued philosophy of staying ahead of product development cycles with leading-edge materials technology is essential to enabling long-term consumer product advancement. "The management of heat dissipation in advanced devices is a critical issue for electronics manufacturers - more so now than ever," states Brandi. "Designers are continuing to develop packages with smaller footprints and increased functionality, which results in higher operating temperatures. Henkel's line of advanced materials effectively manages the increased heat generation, ensuring to the reliability of the end-product." Some of Brandi's top priorities include the exploration of new filler technologies and other mediums to enhance thermal conductivity and flow characteristics to yield superior thermal impedance, as well as the expansion of the current product line to address the extremely fragmented power electronics market. Prior to assuming the Global Product Management role, Brandi held various positions within the Henkel organization including technical sales supervisor and thermal materials specialist. As Global Product Manager for Thermal Management Materials, Brandi will be based in the company's Irvine, California headquarters and will report to Dr. Malcolm Warwick.
