John McDonald, VP of Marketing|
John McDonald came to Silego in early 2008 to lead the turn-around of Silego as a PC clock company due to the expected 2010 integration of this clocking product family that represented more than 90% of Silego’s revenue. John and the Silego team used this two year window to introduce the GreenFET power control, GreenPAK Mixed Signal Matrix, and GreenCLK 32.768 kHz silicon clock products. Even after the disappearance of the PC Clock market, Silego is now more than twice the size, far more profitable, and has shipped the 1 billionth unit of these new product families. Prior to Silego, Mr. McDonald founded the SiTime Marketing team in 2005 contributing to the introduction of the world’s first production MEMS oscillator while achieving numerous design wins.
In 2001 Mr. McDonald was requested to join Cypress MicroSystems (CMS), a Cypress Semiconductor CY:NYSE funded startup, as the VP of Marketing at a time when the start-up had zero revenue, no customers, and significant quality issues. The team behind CMS quickly grew to become the popular PSoC microcontroller family eventually being spun into Cypress Semiconductor with value exceeding $200M+. John’s team led Cypress’ introduction into the touch sense market which later represented over $400M in annual CY revenue. Prior to CMS, John worked for Cypress Semiconductor and was part of the general purpose and programmable clock marketing group from 1998 to 2001 during a period in which non acquisition sales grew by more than 5x.
Mr. McDonald has also worked for Analog Devices in the Precision Op Amp group and as an advanced analog bio-medical design engineer for 6 years in Washington State. John has his BSEE from the University of Washington (1990), has authored numerous technical articles, and holds 6 patents with others pending.
Mike Noonen, VP Sales and Business Development|
Mike Noonen joined in April 2016. He has 25 years of experience of growing businesses and mixed-signal innovation. Most recently he was the interim CEO and Board Director at Ambiq Micro. Previously, Noonen was the Chairman and co-founder of Silicon Catalyst, the semiconductor solution start-up incubator based in Silicon Valley. Silicon Catalyst won the 2015 EE Times/EDN “Start-up of the Year” Ace Award.
Previously as EVP, Global Products, Design, Sales, & Marketing at GlobalFoundries, Noonen led the customer focused turnaround that resulted in industry leading growth in 2012. In 2008 Noonen joined NXP following its spin-out from Philips. As EVP, Worldwide Sales & Marketing, he and NXP's CTO crafted NXP's high performance mixed-signal repositioning leading to its growth and successful 2010 IPO.
Noonen has held GM and executive sales and marketing roles at National Semiconductor, Cisco Systems and 8x8. He started his career at NCR Microelectronics as an FAE teaching mixed-signal ASIC design. He holds a BSEE from Colorado State University and in 2012 was named the College of Engineering Distinguished Alumni. He also served on the Global Semiconductor Alliance Board of Directors and was Chairman of Socle in Taiwan. He holds multiple patents in the areas of Internet telephony and video communications.
