Molex CEO and former UEL student Martin Slark delivers guest lecture 


UEL alumnus will give lecture on driving profitable growth and will offer advice on how to build a successful career in a global company

The University of East London is honoured to welcome former student Martin Slark, CEO of Molex, who will give a guest lecture on driving profitable growth in a changing world and how to build a successful career in a global company.

Martin completed his undergraduate studies in electronic engineering from Bracknell College. He earned a post-graduate diploma in management studies from the University of Portsmouth, and an MBA from UEL. In 2004, Martin received an honorary doctorate in business administration from UEL. 

Martin joined Molex in 1976 as a sales office supervisor. He held a number of senior roles in the company around the world, before taking up the role of CEO.  

Molex manufacture electronic, electrical and fibre optic systems. Their products are used in some of the most advanced medical surgery procedures today. They have also advanced mobile phone technology, producing flexible interconnects that support new features such as colour displays and touchscreens.

Martin's focus on growth has resulted in strategic acquisitions by Molex during his tenure as vice chairman and CEO, expanding the company’s global presence in the medical, industrial and telecommunications markets.

His belief in the importance of innovation and global collaboration led to the launch of the company’s Innovation Challenge initiative in 2012, which is helping Molex generate new ideas to drive growth beyond its core business.

This is a talk not to be missed, so come and hear from an industry leader with global experience.
