Peratech, a world-leading tactile-sensing solutions company, has appointed Jim Thomas as Chief Commercial Officer. Thomas joins Peratech to scale Peratech’s design wins in gaming and commercial user interfaces and to build strategic partnerships for ultrathin tactile solutions in consumer electronics.
Thomas came from Swift Navigation, where he was Head of Mobile Strategy, and Sensel, where he was VP of Business Development. He successfully led product integration and commercialisation initiatives, propelling both company’s technologies into must-have feature-sets for mobile, consumer electronics, PC computing, and automotive market segments. Thomas has 23 years’ expertise building high-tech organisations, including nLIGHTn, Scalado, and Picsel where he held VP, C-level, and other leadership positions. Thomas built a track-record of repeatable strategic sales and business development successes by achieving high customer-satisfaction in technical solutions and high-quality service. In addition to his sales roles, Thomas was advised various start-ups as well as California and Taiwan-based Venture Capital.
Remarked Jon Stark, Peratech CEO, “Jim joins us at the perfect time: His ability to navigate the rapid-ramp-to-volume, product development lifecycle in commercial electronics and scale franchise-customer wins is exactly what we are doing right now. He has already made deep connections internally—even in Covid times—and created the wow message that our team backs up with world-class, game-changing solutions.”
“Peratech’s innovation foundation from the UK is so strong,” said Thomas, “but what really sets the company apart from our competition is the engineering and commercialisation capability in China. Together, our multi-national teams create rapid-volume launch solutions that I haven’t seen before in the market. It’s such an exciting time to be at Peratech.”
