Mike explains how he and the firm stay ahead of any developments which may arise, which is interesting particularly as new technology is constantly being released on a daily basis. “Importantly, staying ahead of any advances regarding technology is critical to enabling the company to compete long term. Personally, I track industry news and learn through a network of industry contacts. Yes, the rapid changing technology life cycle is getting hard to keep up with.” Regarding the technology market, Mike states what developments he foresees and what techniques the business will employ in order to adapt around these. He talks about being a pioneer in the LED industry, and makes reference to the Lynk’s impressive portfolio. “Moving forwards, there is a lot to look forward to and we anticipate a lot of changes ahead. I actually pioneered the AC-LED industry segment almost 20 years ago. Over the years, we have built up a broad and strategic patent portfolio. Our technology has been used for years but it only represented a very small percentage of the overall industry. “Today, AC-LED technology is one of, if not the number one fastest growing technology segment within the LED industry. Our technology and IP is just now starting to be used in many of the highest volume selling lighting products and this will continue to grow. As a result, we have formed a new IP holding company; Lynk IP Asset Management LLC, and hired former licensing experts from Philips to initiate an industry wide licensing program for Lynk Labs patent assets.” In his concluding comments, Mike signs off on commenting what the future aspirations are for Lynk and where he sees the company in five years. Having been recognized as CEO, Mike is hopeful that eventually Lynk Labs will be recognized itself for the pioneering and exciting work it does within the technology market. “Looking ahead, my goal for Lynk is to do the best I can for our shareholders, employees and technology segment within our industry. I am hopeful that Lynk Labs will one day be recognized for the innovative and pioneering contribution it has made to the LED industry globally with changing how LEDs are powered using AC voltages.”
