Mark Lamers has been appointed as new CFO of Nearfield Instruments, effective as per 1 April 2024. Prior to joining Nearfield, Mark was CFO at BUX. Before that, Mark held several positions at ABN AMRO where he worked for 14 years as investment banker in the areas of Mergers & Acquisitions and Equity Capital Markets in which he was involved in many equity capital market transactions including, IPOs, share issues and buybacks (including ASML).

‘I am thrilled to be entering the dynamic semiconductor sector, as part of this fantastic company. I very much look forward to contributing to help grow Nearfield Instruments to becoming the global leader in Metrology & Inspection (‘M&I’) equipment. I do believe that the semiconductor industry may be the sector that has the biggest impact on people’s life, not only technically but also from a geopolitical perspective. In an industry that is facing its physical boundaries, conventional M&I equipment no longer suffices. I am convinced that Nearfield Instruments’ high-end systems provide the solution for this new era in which advanced lithography will become the standard.’

Hamed Sadegian (CEO): ‘We are pleased to have Mark onboard, as he brings significant experience from both a Corporate as well as a scale-up perspective. He has a broad background in economics and banking that will help us grow and professionalise the Company building on the strong foundation of what we started in 2016.’
