Indium Corporation’s Brian O’Leary, global head of e-Mobility and infrastructure, will deliver the keynote presentation on market trends in the thriving electric vehicle (EV) landscape at the Surface Mount Technology Association’s (SMTA) LA/OC Expo & Tech Forum, at 10:30 a.m. local time, Tuesday, Nov. 15, and Thursday, Nov. 17 in Long Beach and Escondido, Calif., U.S, respectively.
The automotive landscape is changing at a breathtaking speed as start-ups and legacy automotive makers alike pour billions of dollars into electric vehicles (EVs). EVs have been called “computers on wheels” and for good reason, having more than three times the electronics and a fraction of the mechanical parts of an internal combustion engine. Unlike prior technologies that might have started in the United States to only later migrate offshore, EVs are an equal opportunity industry with thriving local manufacturing and a trend to locally source. In e-Mobility: Important Trends to Help Drive Your Business, O’Leary will explore some important trends in the market, such as commercial, technological, and supply chain. Participants should leave with key insights on how they might compete in this exciting and growing industry.
O’Leary is responsible for promoting Indium Corporation’s full range of products and services for e-Mobility, which include the markets for EVs, charging stations, and infrastructure, among others. He joined Indium Corporation in 2014 and has more than 20 years of experience in sales, marketing, and channel management in the electronics industry. He currently serves as the chair of the IPC e-Mobility Quality & Reliability Advisory Group. In addition to regular technical conference participation, Brian co-hosts a free monthly webcast—EV InSIDER Live—with Loren McDonald of EVAdoption and a high-profile industry stakeholder as a guest. In the webcast, they discuss current pressing issues and hot topics in the rapidly evolving electric vehicle landscape. He earned his master’s degree in international management at the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University, Phoenix, Ariz. He also co-authored two books on thermal profiling: Profiling Guide for Profitability and Profiling Guide for Six Sigma.
