Opportunity: CEO, Europe

CEO, Europe


Our client is a disruptive and innovative haptic touch technology company. They have recently closed a funding round and are now entering the commercial scale-up phase, with three design wins with a tier-one laptop vendor. Their solution is the smallest, and their power consumption is lower than any other solution on the market coupled with high functionality through their software

The board now requires a commercial CEO to lead the company from a technical innovator through the commercial scale-up phase.

We are looking for a CEO with a strong mix of commercial and business leadership skills that can lead and drive the “go-to-market”.

This role is focused on commercial execution, not technology development.

The successful candidate:

  • Be an experienced CEO or CCO that has been through the lifecycle of a venture capital backed technology company – including fundraising.
  • Experience will have been gained in the semiconductor value-chain, with a preference for experience of consumer electronics, haptics/touch, compute or other analogous module/sub-system verticals.
  • An understanding of full-stack solutions – hardware and embedded software is important.
  • Will have worked on an international basis, with experience and credibility within the Asian and/or US markets.


Please note: this position can be based anywhere in Europe.

Please note: We can only consider responses from candidates that have been a CEO/CCO in a venture-backed business.
