New horizons for Cambridge Mechatronics as Jörgen Lantto is appointed Chairman

Cambridge Mechatronics Ltd (CML) is pleased to announce the appointment of former President and CEO of Fingerprint Cards, Jörgen Lantto, as its new Chairman.

Jörgen was unanimously voted as CML’s new Chairman, after serving on the board as a Non-Executive Director since October 2020. Prior to Fingerprint Cards, Jörgen has a long background in the Ericsson group, amongst other positions he was Executive VP for ST-Ericsson. He is currently serving as Chairman of Zwipe AS in Norway and board member of Tobii AB in Sweden, Milepost AB in Sweden and Wirepas Oy in Finland.

"I am delighted with my recent appointment as Chairman for Cambridge Mechatronics. As a company, CML continues to grow, and our Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators have seen an increased uptake across several major smartphone camera manufacturers in Asia throughout 2022. At CML we are continually developing to meet the market’s needs, this has included new products like our Sensor-Shift and 8-Wire actuators, whilst upscaling our silicon strategy to provide optimum SMA control and system performance. We look forward to sharing further details soon."
