Kucharewski brings two decades of experience in semiconductors and network systems to Rockley. He was most recently the vice president of product marketing at Broadcom Ltd., where he contributed in a variety of senior roles. Over an 11-year period, Kucharewski led product teams defining and marketing a series of products for data center and service provider applications. Prior to this, he held engineering leadership roles at Applied Micro and MMC Networks, where he contributed to some of the industry’s first programmable networking silicon.
“The Rockley team has developed an impressive set of new technologies and a plan to manufacture at scale,” Kucharewski said. “The close integration of optics and high-density CMOS silicon enables a new approach to network equipment design, and I am excited to join the Rockley Photonics team as it enables worldwide customers with this new technology platform.”
Kucharewski holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
“Our team has made amazing progress innovating across boundaries to achieve levels of integration with silicon photonics and microelectronics previously unseen in the industry,” said Andrew Rickman, founder and CEO of Rockley. “As we rapidly move to market it is important that we scale our sales, marketing and customer support activities, while working closely with customers to align our next generation products. Nick brings leadership, experience and competence which will enable this next phase of our growth. We are very pleased to have Nick join our team.”
