A commercial technologist and successful serial entrepreneur, Barry Jones brings to Movidius over 20 years of experience in mobile handset technologies and an enviable record in successfully delivering client applications into mobile devices. Mr Jones has worked with a variety of blue chip, SME and start-up companies. Over the years he has successfully brought more than 100 consumer electronics products to market, generating revenues in excess of $5 billion. Mr Jones joined Movidius in June 2009 from Motorola where he was Operations and Development Director, responsible for managing mass-market mobile handset product development across four continents.
