Newcomer Alert: Brian Moon Arrives from the U.K. to Tap Local Talent
Product-design and technology-consulting firm Cambridge Consultants (the other Cambridge) announced late last week that it was moving its U.S. headquarters and its previously U.K.-based CEO, Brian Moon, to Kendall Square. The company’s U.S. staff, which was until now based in Boston’s Fort Point Channel, is set to quadruple in size in three to five years.
Moon’s Cambridge-to-Cambridge move is part of the company’s effort to expand its role as a U.S. technology incubator and to shift from launching startup companies based strictly on internally generated IP (previous spinoffs include Bluetooth chip maker CSR) to partnering with academic or venture partners for some launches. Hiring and acquisitions in the coming months will focus on the medical technology and wireless sectors.
