John Mathews, a senior operations executive and an electrical engineer, has garnered extensive international experience with multinational companies in the computer and semi-conductor industry. He has worked for several companies including KLA-Tencor, designers and manufacturers of metrology equipment, with Hewlett Packard of computer development fame, and with Silicon Valley Group Inc. manufacturers of automated wafer processing equipment. Multi-faceted, he’s worked with finance, customer relations, production processes, logistics and more. He likes big challenges like developing, manufacturing, marketing and launching new product lines. He has also applied his business acumen in start-up companies who boot-strapped themselves into existence and then needed effective management and organizational process review. Each professional experience expanded his base and informed his work with successive companies; now retired, he is willing to share his accumulated experience by mentoring clients who have a great idea, clearly articulated visions and who are willing to give due diligence to researching the market to determine the level of demand for their respective service or product. He notes that that professional competency must be coupled with an investment of capitol, energy and patience if a business is to thrive. He feels that true success often requires working with and acknowledging the contributions of other competent people.
