Unipixel Displays Inc

Vice President of Business Development

UniPixel was an innovative developer of Performance Engineered Films to the Display and Flexible Electronics markets. UniPixel's fully additive roll-to-roll processes launched a new approach to producing high performance touch sensor solutions particularly when combined with Diamond Guard cover glass replacement films. UniPixel's InTouch Sensors and Diamond Guard hard coat technologies offered device manufacturers new alternatives to ITO and glass systems. After multiple manufacturing partners and customers were brought in, successive management destroyed the company through a series of incredibly bad decisions driving it into bankruptcy. What a waste of our great innovations, successful partnering, and customer based growth.
