The Electronics Group of Henkel recently announced it has named Kevin Becker, Ph.D., to lead its global Product Development and Engineering (PD&E) team. Becker replaces Michael Todd, Ph.D., who has held the position for the past seven years. Todd has moved to Henkel headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany, to head up the company’s Adhesives Research group.

Throughout the last 14 years at Ablestik and Henkel, Becker has held numerous roles in R&D and business management. He was reportedly instrumental in the development and commercial success of a printable, B-staged die-attach paste material for memory packages that was a disruptive technology, essentially displacing traditional film with a lower cost and equal performance material.
