Ltd. (world’s leading supplier of high-end lithium iron phosphate battery cathode materials, and its cumulative shipments of high-end products ranking first in the world) etc. Mr. Wu led the development of the first batch of semiconductor factory in China in 1993 and worked together with Mr. Bradley to localize the first BiCMOS manufacturing line in China, which has become what is known today as the factory for GTA Semiconductors (formerly known as Shanghai Advanced Semiconductors). He has made contributions in technology and industrial investments in the past 20 years and has extensive management and notable investment experience in the field of semiconductors, as well as solar technology, new energy solution, battery and fast charging solutions. He studied at the University of British Columbia, Canada and University of California, Berkeley and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He served as the Sloan Fellows’ Board of Governors at MIT for 5 years.
Mr. Kenneth James Bradley, one of the members of the Global Strategic Advisory Committee, is currently the founder, chief executive officer and chairman of Lytica Inc., an electronics component supply chain analytics and risk intelligence company. Mr. Bradley has over 40 years of experience in the electronics industry and was formerly the chief executive officer of Coresim Inc, a leader in advanced design analysis and redesign services.
