MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – January 11, 2021 – Flex Logix ® Technologies, Inc. today announced that seasoned executive Dana McCarty has joined Flex Logix as Vice President (VP) of Sales and Marketing for Inference Products. Dana brings a wealth of domestic and international experience having previously held senior management roles in high-growth companies such as Arm, Broadcom and Teradyne, among others. In this new role, Dana will be responsible for building a team of sales, marketing and applications engineers to work with existing and future customers to ramp sales of Flex Logix’s InferX™ X1 inference solutions (software, chips and boards).
“Flex Logix continues to experience increased demand for our original eFPGA product line and sees strong demand for our new AI inference product lines, so we are establishing separate sales teams to focus on each area of growth,” said Geoff Tate, CEO of Flex Logix. “Dana’s extensive experience managing and expanding business growth in global markets will be instrumental in helping Flex Logix establish a leadership position in the AI Inference market, which analysts expect to grow to ten or more billions of dollars by the mid 2020s.”
Dana joins the newly expanded Flex Logix sales team along side Andy Jaros, VP of Sales and Marketing for IP and Licensing, both of whom report to CEO Geoff Tate. Andy has built a significant and profitable embedded FPGA (eFPGA) business which the company expects to continue to grow with commercial market adoption starting to accelerate.
“Flex Logix is in a unique position to bring AI Inference to the mass market enterprise applications with a product that delivers superior price/performance compared to existing solutions,” said Dana McCarty. “This is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to working with and adding to the world class team that Flex Logix has already assembled.”
