SkyCross Announces Corporate Growth Including New Headquarters, Expanded Capacity and Executive Hires

SkyCross, a global designer and manufacturer of advanced antenna and RF solutions, and industry leader in advanced tunable antenna technology for 4G LTE mobile devices, today announced the opening of new corporate headquarters in Fremont, Calif., expansion of its manufacturing capacity, and the appointment of two new executives, Warren H. Weiner as chief financial officer and John Marshall as chief marketing officer.

SkyCross has moved its corporate headquarters from Viera, Fla. to Fremont, Calif., in order to be closer to Silicon Valley and its sales and manufacturing facilities in Asia. SkyCross’ Florida offices will become an R&D facility and SkyCross’ Greater China and Korea operations will remain full design and manufacturing facilities.

In addition, SkyCross has increased its manufacturing capacity in both of its factories in Greater China and Korea, augmenting its reliable support of market-leading customers in their worldwide product launches. In conjunction with this capacity increase, SkyCross now has full LDS capability in both factories. The move comes amidst growing demand for SkyCross’ broad array of antenna solutions, including its advanced antennas that are uniquely suited to serve the rapidly expanding LTE market. Though 4G LTE communications traditionally requires multiple LTE antennas, a single tunable SkyCross antenna can integrate multiple signal feeds and behave like multiple antennas, eliminating cost and space while preserving performance.

“SkyCross recently reached record revenues and our momentum continues to grow,” said Ben Naskar, CEO and chairman of SkyCross. “Our new headquarters will allow us to better support our customers throughout the design and manufacturing process. We’re excited about the exceptional connectivity, 4G LTE speeds and design possibilities that our high-performance, compact, affordable antenna solutions will enable for the next generation of wireless devices.”

To assist in managing the company’s growth, SkyCross has named Warren H. Weiner, an accomplished financial, operations and business development executive with more than 30 years of telecommunications experience, as chief financial officer. Previously, Weiner served as CFO of Paratek Microwave, Inc., where he negotiated strategic relationships, initiated cost-saving measures and led the company to its acquisition by Research In Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM). Weiner has also spearheaded successful acquisitions for several additional wireless solutions providers. He has a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s degree in business administration from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and is a CPA.

To assist with the company’s market and product strategy as it moves into advanced communication solutions, SkyCross has appointed John Marshall as chief marketing officer. Marshall has more than 15 years of experience in general management, strategy and marketing, and is responsible for SkyCross’ products, marketing and business development for mobile and operator solutions worldwide. Prior to SkyCross, he served as Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SiBEAM, Inc., a consumer electronics and mobile technology company acquired by Silicon Image (NASDAQ:SIMG). Before SiBEAM, Marshall led marketing and business development teams for 2Wire Inc., contributing to the company’s acquisition by Pace (PIC:LSE). He holds multiple U.S./international patents, and earned a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Michigan.

In addition to its new headquarters, SkyCross maintains offices in Viera, Fla; Suwon, Korea; Taoyuan, Taiwan; and Shenzhen and Shanghai, China. The company has built a strong IP portfolio with more than 200 patents granted/pending, and more than 100 R&D/design engineers. With scalable manufacturing capabilities in China and Korea, SkyCross delivers more than 125 million antennas per year.
