Menko de Roos

Xicato Incorporated
After 10 years with Philips Lighting in a variety of technical and general management functions throughout intercontinental locations, Menko joined Lumileds Lighting in 1999 at the start of the expanded JV as a member of the executive staff in Silicon Valley. At Philips, Menko held executive roles responsible for operations in Belgium, plant management in China and concluded as GM/MD for Alpignano Lamps, the global leader in appliance lighting headquartered in Italy. At Lumileds, Menko transitioned from successfully growing the traffic-signaling business as Business Unit Manager to building and leading a diverse team for four years as Executive VP, New Business Development. This team developed new breakthrough markets that helped Lumileds become known as the market and technology leader for solid-state lighting solutions. Menko then transferred in early 2005 to Malaysia, and was responsible for the fast-growing Lumileds global operations. Menko co-founded Xicato in July 2007.
