Tempo Automation (San Francisco) — which boasts that it is the world’s fastest low-volume electronics manufacturer — has tapped industry veteran and board member Joy Weiss as its new president and CEO.
Zavain Dar, Tempo board member and partner at Lux Capital, said in a news release today that Weiss “has a keen understanding of our products and markets, and brings a strategic vision for our growth.”
“Tempo Automation is reinventing the way companies in aerospace, medical technology, industrial technology and other industries develop and bring new products to market,” Dar said.
One of Tempo’s earliest investors, Weiss most recently served as VP at Analog Devices, where she was in charge of the company’s data center and IoT businesses. She previously served as CEO of Dust Networks, which was acquired by Linear Technology, and as CEO at Inviso. She started out at Nortel Networks, where she rose to the position of president and GM of Nortel’s Network Management division.
“I am honored and excited to lead Tempo as we continue to enable a major acceleration in the pace of hardware innovation. Having led hardware-centric companies before, I know how valuable Tempo’s software and manufacturing innovation is to our customers, and that our services address a large and underserved problem,” Weiss said.
Tempo last year opened a 42,000-square-foot smart factory in San Francisco’s Design District. Tempo has proprietary software automation that allows electrical engineers to ensure precision, speed and transparency for PCBA development.
