John Bruggeman, CMO
September, 2009. Lonergan Partners is pleased to announce that John Bruggeman has been named Chief Marketing Officer of Cadence Design Systems.
Cadence enables global electronic design innovation and plays an essential role in the creation of today’s integrated circuits and electronics. Customers use Cadence software and hardware, methodologies, and services to design and verify advanced semiconductors, consumer electronics, networking and telecommunications equipment, and computer systems. The company is headquartered in San Jose, California.
Working with Lip-Bu Tan and his team at Cadence as a trusted advisor promoted my deep understanding of their business situation. We were able to develop a clear search strategy to attract an executive who could accomplish the transformation they desired. John has the unique experience and motivation to take on this challenge.
Cadence is in an excellent position to dramatically improve global design productivity through its innovative solutions.
Semiconductor and systems design companies are increasingly looking to Cadence as a trusted partner to minimize risk, reduce design costs, and to deliver critical, long-term benefits. There is a truly compelling opportunity here and I’m excited to help accelerate the company’s success.
