I worked extensively with Jon during the two key moments in the history of Cambridge Silicon Radio (a transformation program as well as a merger/acquisition). Jons leadership with both the CSR executives & team as well as the external strategic management consultants was seen by all as pivotal to the success of the program. Indeed, his ability to glue the pieces together, keep the big vision in mind, provide adequate forum to discuss sensitive issues and problem solving leadership. In these areas, Jon is among the most effective professional I have encountered in my career"     Alexis Bernard, former management consultant, McKinsey and co., now CTO Knowles corp.   

"I worked closely with Jon on a range of projects, including his role managing our project management organization, as well as running the integration office for our merger with SiRF. Jon was very effective in those roles, with especially strong networking skills and ability to relate to people all across the organization. Jon also has a wealth of experience in the semiconductor industry which is also of great value.   Will Gardiner, CFO, CSR

"Jon's ability to "think system" (vs just IC) coupled with his curiosity about new/emerging technology ideas made him a perfect fit for my Strategic Marketing/Business Development organization. Jon also is a terrific communicator and is able to develop relationships with customers to learn about their plans and needs, then communicate them effectively to the Internal business teams. Jon's inputs on new/emerging end equipment trends added tremendous value to the TI product roadmaps"  Doug Rasor, VP Worldwide Strategic Marketing at Texas Instruments    

"Jon is an honest, hard working straight shooter. His years of experience in the semiconductor industry make him a valuable advisor/consultant to early stage companies"   Paul Harvey, Managing Director-Head of EMEA Technology at Bank of America Merrill Lynch

Jon's enthusiasm and commitment to bring new technology to market was really inspiring to me. It was the model on which I subsequently founded CSR"    Glenn Collinson, co-founder of CSR and Neul

"Overall Jon has proven an effective business leader"  John Scarisbrick, former SVP of Texas Instruments and non-exec director of ARM   

I worked with Jon to refine our strategy on Optical Networking in the late 1990s and early 00's. Jon has an excellent capability to network across both highly technical and business related people - both inside a larger company and in the industry. His great sense of humour and technical depth build respect and credibility quickly. He also has excellent investment judgement"  Paul Carson, IP Director, Texas Instruments
