Board of Directors’ Announces Changes

After fifteen years of generous service and exemplary guidance, Dr. Carl Johnson, founder and primary donor to the Coherent/II-VI Foundation, will be stepping down as Chairman of the Board of Directors but remaining on the Board as Chairman Emeritus. We look forward to Dr. Johnson continuing his invaluable advice and counsel.

We are pleased to announce Retired Rear Admiral Marc Pelaez has graciously accepted the position of Chairman of the Board. Rear Admiral Pelaez has served as a member of the Board of Directors since the inception of the Coherent/II-VI Foundation. We look forward to Rear Admiral Pelaez’s leadership as we continue our mission.
