NuCurrent, a leader in wireless power antenna technology, announces the appointment of Glenn Riese as Director of Product Engineering. With over 20 years of experience in electrical engineering and design, including leading teams that delivered such products as the Motorola RAZR and Droid, Riese will be responsible for leading design and development of NuCurrent’s wireless power applications.

“Glenn is an esteemed engineering leader with an exceptional track record of managing teams that deliver state-of-the-art electronic products,” said Jacob Babcock, CEO, NuCurrent. “By adding Glenn's expertise in product engineering to our existing technological superiority, our customers will benefit from an unsurpassed level of quality, speed and value in all NuCurrent products.”

Prior to joining NuCurrent, Riese served in several leadership positions at Motorola Mobility, where he led a global team of electrical, mechanical and software engineers that provided engineering support for current products. During his tenure, Riese led design and development of wireless power systems (including board level circuit and antenna design) for a variety of projects in parallel. He also has vast experience in hardware development for mobile devices with Wi-Fi, GPS, near field communication (NFC) and wireless charging.

“NuCurrent is an extremely innovative company on the cutting edge of the wireless power industry. I am excited to bring my experience in product management and engineering leadership to this group of exceptional engineers and innovators,” said Riese. “Having worked on multiple devices at Motorola that included wireless charging functionality, I believe the industry is poised for rapid growth and I’m excited to be developing leading solutions for our customers.”

NuCurrent recently announced a $3.48 million Series A round of funding and a strategic partnership and investment from Molex, helping to expand the global manufacturer of electronic solutions’ wireless power capabilities. NuCurrent has also been selected as the reference antenna for the systems of other wireless power industry leaders including Broadcom and Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Already supporting solutions across Wireless Power Consortium (Qi) and Power Matters Alliance (PMA) standards, NuCurrent’s high-efficiency resonators were also selected for the first commercially available Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) certified products. The company’s high-efficiency antennas were also selected as the Wireless Power Consortium's standard antenna for in-car charging (i.e. charging a mobile phone by placing it on the center armrest of a car).
