Former Motorola executive and early stage technology investor Richard N. Nottenburg, PhD, has joined the board of Theatro, a startup focused on wearable devices.
Nottenburg previously served as president and CEO and a member of the board of directors of Sonus Networks from 2008 to 2010. From 2004 until 2008, Nottenburg was an officer with Motorola, ultimately serving as its EVP, chief strategy officer and chief technology officer. He currently serves on the boards of PMC Sierra, Verint Systems and Aeroflex Corporation.
"We are thrilled to have Rich (Nottenburg) as part of our board of directors. Rich brings the unique combination of deep technical expertise on a broad range of subjects and the passion of an entrepreneur,” said Chris Todd, CEO of Theatro. “His knowledge will be invaluable as we build Theatro into the thought leader in the emerging enterprise wearable market.”
Nottenburg earned three degrees in electrical engineering — a doctorate from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Lausanne, Switzerland, a master's degree from Colorado State University and a bachelor's degree from Polytechnic Institute of New York.
"I am very excited to be joining the Theatro board of directors. Theatro has an exciting vision for the future of retail operations, great software innovations and a management team who knows how to execute," Nottenburg said. “I look forward to leveraging my experience to help Theatro in their next phase of development.”
