Dr. Angelo Lamola

Dr. Angelo Lamola is offering consultation in the management of technology and technical organizations based on his twenty-five years of experience in these areas as a scientist and an executive at Bell Labs, Polaroid, Shipley and Rohm and Haas. He has particular expertise in formulating technology strategy, building technology platforms, organizational development, and rebuilding technology organizations. His areas of deepest technical expertise concern specialty materials having application to electronics, optoelectronics, and medical diagnostics and devices.* After earning degrees in Chemistry at MIT (BS) and Caltech (PhD), Dr. Lamola was an Assistant Professor at Notre Dame for two years until he decided to join a new department being formed at Bell Labs to pursue molecular biophysics. In addition to a long and diverse series of basic research activities, he guided a small company in the commercialization of medical diagnostic devices based upon his discoveries. As department head he founded a very successful neurobiology group. At Shipley he rebuilt the R&D organization, which had been failing, into a worldwide leader in materials for electronics fabrication. Since Shipley was purchased by Rohm and Haas Dr. Lamola has been a key figure at Rohm and Haas in the formulation of technology strategy and new technology platforms as well as technology organization assessment. He is also well versed in stage/gate project management, cycle time improvement, and R&D portfolio management.

He has also been an advisor, both in technology and organizational development, for the Wellman Laboratory and Institute for Lasers in Medicine at Harvard/Massachusetts General Hospital, and at Advanced Magnetics Co. (MRI diagnostic agents). He was adjunct professor in Dermatology at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr. Lamola is prepared to work with R&D teams and departments. His preference is to work closely as a consultant/coach with individual team leaders and technology managers. He is prepared to advise in technology management and organizational development, preferably the combination. With 15 years of association with New Context Consulting, mostly as a customer, Dr. Lamola is enthusiastic to combine his expertise with its broad and powerful prowess in organizational development.

*Until further notice technical consulting must avoid activities competitive with Rohm and Haas and Shipley.

Management Experiences:

AT&T Bell Labs

Restructured the Molecular Biophysics Department at Bell Labs. Established a potent neurobiology group with strong interfaces with microfabrication and computing sciences efforts. Initiated three new venture activities in the health care area (medical information systems for hospitals, picture archiving and communications systems for radiology departments, fiber-optics-based medical devices).

Polaroid Corporation

Managed a 120-member research and development organization responsible for the fine chemicals and materials in Polaroid products, the chemical basis of new imaging systems, support of imaging media development, support of chemicals production operations, and forward-looking chemicals and materials research.

Shipley Company

Responsible for the worldwide R&D activities and technology directions of a specialty chemicals company that is a leading multinational supplier of sophisticated materials and processes (for metal deposition and circuit imaging) to the electronics industry. In three years regenerated a failing R&D enterprise into one which is recognized as first-rate and a leader in its fields. Improved productivity from two products in the previous three years to eight product families during tenure most of which are proprietary. Shipley's sales (exclusive of acquisitions) now approach $600-million, more than a tripling since 1988, due to the product developments initiated during this tenure.

Rohm and Haas Company

Directed, in partnership with a business director, a 100 person organization, a new business incubator, charged with the mission to create a substantial new stand alone business(es) for Rohm and Haas. The technology/market areas of interest are polymer components for remote source lighting (e.g., flexible plastic light pipe), polymer and plastic materials and components for flat panel displays, processing aids for advanced ceramics fabrication, materials for energy devices, and microengineered inorganic nanoparticles. OptiflexTM flexible light pipe is now fledged from the incubator as the key piece of a new business called Unison Fiber Optic Lighting Co., launched at the end of 1997. Several other technology platforms have been or are being "monetized" presently, including one major breakthrough in plastics processing.

Presently, as Chief Scientist and Director of Technology Management, responsible for ensuring the quality of the technical content of the strategies and research portfolios of the business units throughout the company, and for processes to assess and improve unit technical capabilities. Strategic direction of the Analytical and Computational Technology Center and the Toxicology Department, as well as the direction of a small R&D unit aimed at new electronics materials is part of the current responsibility.
