Case Studies
 


TriQuint (now Qorvo) (NASDAQ: QRVO)

TriQuint is one of Oregon’s largest tech companies, making wireless chips for your iPhone and other mobile devices. We successfully concluded several searches on retainer, driving market cap from $669 million to over $3 billion.

  • CEO & President
  • CFO
  • VP Worldwide Sales
  • VP/GM Wireless
  • VP Operations

Tripwire

Tripwire provides IT solutions, like cloud security, to more than half of the Fortune 500 companies. We were retained by them on a Board search, CEO & President search and VP Sales search. During this time, revenue increased over 600% and the company was acquired by a PE firm for $710M.


Kateeva

Growing from less than $10 million to over $100 million in revenue in one year, Kateeva partnered with The Brentwood Group on its CFO, VP Marketing, VP China and VP Manufacturing searches. The CEO & Board Chair reports that the placements have helped drive growth for the production equipment company. 


Skyward

Skyward powers aerial drones with a best-in-class platform that maps routes and provides safeguards. The startup needed a VP Software Engineering to deliver leading-edge, regulated SaaS tools in a nascent and rapidly changing market. Brentwood delivered a full slate of highly qualified candidates; Skyward closed on their top choice in just 74 days.


Wacom Technology (TSE: 6727)

We were retained and successfully concluded the CFO, EVP Brand Solutions, SVP Marketing, VP North American Sales and VP HR searches for Wacom. The tablet and stylus maker continues to grow and innovate, achieving $800M in revenue and gaining stronger public visibility.
