Cambridge graduate named Rising Star New Engineer of the Year

Chris White, an engineer with University of Cambridge spin-out Amantys, has been presented with the Rising Star New Engineer of the Year Award at the Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards 2012.

The accolade acknowledges the contribution to business and industry made by engineer White, who has quickly demonstrated both strong technical knowledge and practical application of his skills in challenging projects at Amantys.

We are firm believers in the importance of finding and nurturing young talent as we continue to develop as a business, and it’s been a real pleasure working with Chris and watching him flourish with the company over the last year.

Chris, who joined the Amantys team after graduating with an MA in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2010, has quickly established himself as a key member of the team at Amantys, which was spun-out from the University in 2010.

“We are firm believers in the importance of finding and nurturing young talent as we continue to develop as a business, and it’s been a real pleasure working with Chris and watching him flourish with the company over the last year,” said Bryn Parry, Amantys CEO. “It is no coincidence that the Amantys Power Drive was also highly commended by the judges, reinforcing the value of the contribution Chris has made. We look forward to seeing what else he can achieve and bring to the industry.”

Selected by a panel of technical and respected judges chosen from a wide range of electronic and engineering design disciplines, the award seals a highly successful year for the business and follows Amantys’ Start up of the Year Award at the British Engineering Excellence Awards in October. 2012 also witnessed the company’s second successive selection to the Global Cleantech 100, and appearance in the EE Times “Silicon 60 start-ups to watch”.
