Burbank, CA - Microfabrica Inc., a leader in microdevice and microsystem fabrication, has elected Silicon Valley veteran, Dr. David Lam, as chairman of the board.

With decades of experience managing and advising emerging technology companies, including three years on Microfabrica's board of directors, Dr. Lam will continue to guide the company as it moves into production and expands its global presence.

Adam Cohen, Microfabrica's founder and former chairman, and the inventor of the company's EFAB(r) technology, will continue to serve as chief technology officer and executive vice president of technology.

"Over the last three years, Dr. Lam's wealth of experience has already proven to be invaluable in shaping our strategic direction. We are now looking forward to benefiting even more from his wisdom and guidance in his new role as chairman," said Vacit Arat, president and CEO of Microfabrica.

He later established the David Lam Group, an investment and business advisory firm for high-tech start-ups. As a 'mentor capitalist', Dr. Lam blends a unique style of hands-on coaching with extensive management experience to guide high-tech entrepreneurs.

"I have been a big believer in Microfabrica from its early days. The EFAB process is truly a breakthrough manufacturing technology that enables solutions not feasible with any other technology for a wide range of applications," said Dr. David Lam, Microfabrica chairman. "I'm pleased to take on an expanded role as the company moves to delivering leading products in key applications."
