During his tenure, Freescale launched its IPO and successfully transformed the corporate profile, resulting in the sale of the company in a $17.6B leveraged buyout. Before Motorola, Gotlieb exceeded goals in various sales and business development roles for Analog Devices, Inc. His vast experience extends to software and services through a variety of startup companies as an angel investor and advisory board member.
“I am excited to join the NuCurrent team and be a part of a brand built on technology leadership and industry-validated antennas for wireless power applications,” said Gotlieb. “Wireless power is experiencing significant growth and the demands of OEMs, partners and integrators align smartly to the unique strengths of NuCurrent to delight their end customers without sacrificing size, performance or charge times.
