Amin succeeds retiring CTO David Morse to continue Corning’s commitment to innovation as a driver of growth and value creation

?(NYSE: GLW) today announced the appointment of Dr. Jaymin Amin to senior vice president and chief technology officer (CTO), effective June 1, 2022. Dr. Amin will report to Wendell Weeks, chairman and chief executive officer, and he will succeed retiring CTO Dr. David Morse, whose contributions collectively have had a significant impact on Corning as well as the larger scientific community.

Dr. Amin, 54, will oversee the research, development, and engineering functions that position Corning at the center of industry transformations that are vital to the progress of the world. He will advance the company’s innovation portfolio, creating important growth opportunities that stem from a complementary set of three core technologies, four proprietary manufacturing and engineering platforms, and five Market-Access Platforms (MAPs).

“Jaymin is a deeply respected technology veteran who has worked closely with our senior leadership team to advance Corning’s commitment to innovation, growth, and a sustainable global impact,” Weeks said. “He also has a distinguished track record of working with key customers to solve their toughest technology challenges – pushing the boundaries of what’s possible – using a combination of our core capabilities.”

“Jaymin is part of a new generation of distinguished leaders who factor heavily into the success of our company. His appointment is an important step in our journey of invention, adding to my confidence that Corning’s best work is yet to come,” Weeks continued.

Dr. Amin brings 25 years of technology and product design at Corning to the role, including groundbreaking advancements with some of the company’s most influential and innovative customers. Previously, he served as vice president and general manager for Corning? Gorilla? Glass and led product and process development, product engineering, and commercial technology for the Gorilla? Glass business. Dr. Amin joined Corning in 1997 as a senior research scientist. He holds a master’s degree in optoelectronics and laser physics from the University of Glasgow and a doctorate in optoelectronics from the University of Southampton.

Dr. Morse, 69, has been Corning’s CTO since 2012. During his successful 46-year tenure at the company, he has held several leadership positions and played an instrumental role in the development and implementation of Corning’s technology strategy. He is also a member of the Corning Museum of Glass Advisory Board of Trustees and Corning Incorporated Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

“David has been a trusted and valued advisor to me for many years, and we’ve worked closely together to deliver glass innovations that are vital to progress across our various MAPs,” Weeks said. “The board and I deeply appreciate his leadership and contributions over the years as one of our most accomplished technology leaders. David has created a strong foundation that Jaymin will continue to build on – solidifying our leadership in three core technologies and four manufacturing and engineering platforms that support our strategy and growth well into the future,” Weeks continued.

This transition follows the appointment of Edward Schlesinger to executive vice president and chief financial officer and Cheryl Capps to senior vice president and chief supply chain officer.?The appointments represent comprehensive succession planning and strategic focus on leadership-level talent development to position Corning for long-term value creation. ?
