Nanomaterial and cadmium free quantum dot producer and product company Quantum Materials Corp (QMC) has appointed John Hartigan as its new Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).
QMC develops and manufactures quantum dots and nanomaterials for use in display, solar energy and lighting applications, as well as for the transformation of numerous business processes, through its proprietary high-volume continuous flow production process. By leveraging the highly tunable emission quality of its quantum dots, combined with its scalable blockchain platform, QMC also offers products that underpin anti-counterfeit initiatives.
Hartigan, a recognized leader in the blockchain industry, has founded and led multiple startups and early growth projects, achieving success through strategic partnerships with a number of fortune 500 companies. Over the past 4 years, Hartigan has focused on practical business applications of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Intiva Health, launching the first enterprise decentralized application for healthcare provider credentialing.
“I am delighted that someone of John’s caliber and experience should choose to join our company as it expands to leverage blockchain technology,” said Stephen B. Squires, President and Chief Executive Officer of QMC. “I am confident that the combination of our proprietary technology and John’s business acumen will accelerate our success.”
The appointment came after QMC announced the acquisition of patent-pending blockchain platform technology, which it will leverage to address exciting soon-to-be-announced new market opportunities, augmenting its existing QDX(TM) Quantum Dot Xtreme offerings for the display, solar energy and lighting marketplaces.
“Quantum Materials is absolutely in a class of its own in the quantum dots space and now with the addition of a blockchain capability it was clear to me that I had to be involved in its very bright future,” said Hartigan. “I am extremely excited to join these pioneers of the nanomaterials movement as they expand into new global markets.”
