Product Line Management, Marketing, and Business Development
My recent industry focus has been on the development and implementation of strategic planning, technical product life cycle management, and business partnerships for semiconductors and IP product portfolios within the high reliability segments of automotive multimedia and diagnostic applications centered around wireless GPS/GNSS receivers and MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) technology. I have held a broad range of engineering, product line, and operations management responsibility from both an electrical systems level and semiconductor component perspective.
I am a highly experienced technical product manager of semiconductors, and electrical systems design, development, manufacturing, product marketing, business development, and product life cycle management within automotive, industrial, networking, telecommunications, and multimedia applications. I have a genuine zeal for the development and implementation of strategic planning, contract negotiation, business partnerships, and product marketing for semiconductors, IP product portfolios, and complete systems solutions. I have led product management and marketing competencies at four large corporations and within 2 start-up environments, headed internal corporate strategy councils, managed multiple products in development and delivery of product positioning communications and technical solutions to customers, through sales channels and at industry events including trade shows, conferences, and seminars with the results of increased value-proposition, brand awareness, and subsequent customer account penetration and growth.
My industry experience includes work with four large corporations and two start-up environments as follows:
Delphi Electronics & Safety
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
OASIS Silicon Systems (Semiconductors)
Standard Micro Systems Corporation (SMSCAlchemy Semiconductor
CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio)
My professional career is a 20+ year track record of increasing P&L ownership and consistent high performance results in planning, implementation, efficient execution, and customer focus throughout engineering management leadership and proactive product marketing activities. One of my recent roles as Product Marketing Director for OASIS Silicon Systems (an Austin TX fabless semiconductor start-up) was a demonstration of international cross-cultural product line management both internally by working closely with all design facility disciplines (design and apps engineering, operations, marketing communications, QA, sales management) which was split between US and Europe and externally with a global channel and customer landscape including US, Europe, APAC and Japan. This was an example of demonstrated expertise in pre and post business integration management capabilities including new product definition, implementation of existing product sustainability strategies, international customer relationships, gathering of business intelligence, CIP implementation, operations oversight, and a strong ability to continually challenge and motivate internal disciplines to continually progress and improve ensuring customer deliverables, schedule, and commitments are met while. These efforts culminated in the successful integration of OASIS Silicon Systems and the associated successful launch and return on investment viability of 7 product programs.
